I feel your pain! I also had a bike stolen, a flawless ZX12 right out of my garage earlier this year. If it makes you feel any better, I got my bike back, 2 weeks later with minor damage which my insurance company took care of, so there is a chance. Interestingly enough, they recovered the bike almost 500 miles away at Mardi Gras. The moron who stole it was walking around with my pistol hanging out his back pocket. And this was a professional thief!
Came to find out that the guy who stole my bike had seen it at the street races, and must have followed me home one evening.
I bet the sorry ass who stole your bike was just passing through & saw it, and took advantage of the opportunity, and your bike is still somewhere around in your city. I bet they think they can paint it, and ride it like they paid for it. Fool who took mine didn't paint it, or even change the license plate! Good luck Kawboy, I hope you get that call telling you to come get your bike. Post picture, and distinguishing characteristics so we can all help you look.
