Thumbs up Stolen TZ250 Recovered (Bravo!!)


I received this news from Rising Sun Cycles today announcing the recovery of (most of) their stolen TZ250. Kind of nice to think that the instant publicity and spreading of the word in a lot of circles may have made the bike too hot to sell or even part out. Hope there are more "success" stories in the future. I pasted the letter here and also attached the "after" picture of the recovered bike.

Here's the email:

Recovered - most of it, anyway

RSC's company TZ250 had been taken from our trailer which was parked in southern MA. Due to the local city paper putting an article on the front page of their Town News on Friday 1/24/03 the bikes was recovered locally. The persons involved realized that the bike was very hot due to that article and the blanketed emails we had sent out. There was nothing they could do with it parted out or as a complete bike.
Thank you to all those that added our posting to their web site and email lists.

I didn't hear about the bodywork. That being said, I am glad to hear that for once, SOMEBODY got a small victory over the thieves. Now if the culprits can only be brought in....

I am just tickled that they attribute the publicity gotten on the net and elsewhere as making the bike too "hot" to sell.

Hope this is a sign of things to come with the discussion groups spreading the word.

Having had 3 bikes stolen over 30 years (Yam 80 - my first bike in 1970, Hon 125 Enduro in about 1776 and an RD400 in 1984) It does my heart good to see ANYBODY get back what's theirs!
