2006 drifter 800, black and gray, single seat, black luggage.

Right out of my garage after hurricane Florence in NC, along with me and my kids honda dirtbikes, a triumph Daytona and a ninja 250, theives ate bad but looters after a disaster are a new kind if low , I'll try to post the VIN when I can get to the title.

I apparently didn't have motorcycle theft insurance, I didn't think to ask on  bikes all over a decade old, the dirtbikes were 20.

I'd just started rebuilding my life since my ex wife came out as gay during my last deployment and wiped me out before I could get home.  I don't drink or party ect, I ride to keep sane, I put a few thousand miles on it mostly in the year I rode with BACA, and I'd gotten it because they looked at me funny being on a sport bike, turns out the drifter had enough style I really enjoyed it, even if the floor boards could scrap in a left turn off a stop light.

Thanks, I know this is a long shot

Too bad.
I hope you'll sort it out, in one way or another.

I love my swingin' bike!

Florence sucked (I'm just north of Wilmington nc). Bike thieves are bad enough but anyone who would steal from disaster victims should be shot. I hope you can recover the bikes and they are in one piece.

Man, that's awful. I hate a thief.  They don't give a crap how much damage they do to a person, just to get a buck.  They'll do $1000 worth of damage, and steel a $1000 item just to get $100.  Pitiful.

I hope somehow they find the low lifes, and get your stuff back.

Yep, that's why it should be legal to shoot a looter.

Isn't it? What's the difference between a home invasion/robbery and this?
