No my bike wasn't stolen...almost but no it wasn't.

So my dad's out for a long weekend and as a present to me, he buys me a 2hp 15 gal Craftsmen air compressor and some accessories for it. Very nice of him and all. I bring the thing home today and get it all put together and set it out in the garage (as I do with both motorcycles, at least $2000 in power tools and various other things) and like always when I'm home I leave the garage door open.

I'm standing in the kitchen (next to the garage), and I hear some rattling out in the garage, turn the corner, and the compressor is gone.... As I bolt outside I see a POS Isuzu pickup tearing out of my complex with my brand new (not even two hour old) compressor in the back of it.

I'm not so much pissed now as I have the feeling like I got raped....and the sad part is it was probably a couple of crack heads ...

Ultimately I tried to chase the guys, but I didn't have my bike key handy (I thought: In reality it was in the ignition and they could've stolen the bike) so I had to chase them with the truck....but I lost them...
I did the right thing and filed a police report and I'm pretty sure that my dad's CC has theft protection, but still, why do I feel like someone walked into my house and beat the shit outta me?...

Thanks I needed to vent

Will:

I am sure sorry to hear about what happened to u.I hope they get caught and get the book thrown at 'em!!:mad:
I had a 4x4 of mine vandalized several years ago and it leaves you feeling vunerable and mad and hurt. My trust in the human race took a blow that day!!
Still I try to keep in mind these few cretins are supposedly a minority!?!

Hang in there bud:)

I am afraid of what I would do if I caught somebody doing that. I always say that I wish I could catch somebody trying to rip of my bike (or home, or car, or whatever), but then I would have to live the rest of my life with the knowledge that I actually killed somebody. I don't think I would like that.

Will, that sucks big time! Hang those mofos, tall tree, short rope. That kinda stuff REALLY pisses me off!! On the other hand, though, maybe you should feel good that it didn't come to a physical confrontation; with scum that bold, no telling what they might have done.

If you have renter's or homeowner's insurance, you might have coverage there as well.

Oh, and tell your dad that he should stay at my house next time; I could use a compressor. ;)

It's sad that some people just take what they want when the rest of us bust our a$$es every day to get what we have. At least most criminals are stupid and will eventually get what's coming to them. :mad:

Unfortunately most of them just end up in jail. That's not even close to what they should have coming to them. ;)
