It has been 4 days now since my Bike was stolen, and yeah...I am still way bummed about it, BUT there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
I am insured, and the payoff for the note on the bike is less that what I should be getting form the Insurance company. In addition, I was a smart bear and kept all he recipts for the after market stuff that I put on the SV. I should get a fair ammount of that back as well.
Now the big question is...what kind of bike to I get next?
Well...I can go back to the SV. I know that it is a bike that I really liked, or I can got the RC51 (honda). The RC51 is everything that I have been trying to turn the SV into...so perhaps I should go with the RC51 this time around. The only problem is that it costs 5k more than the SV did...so...I will be forced to go used this time. I just hope that I can get the loan for a used bike.
So in 30 days...I should be back on 2 wheels again...only this time I will have the addition of an alarm and LoJack on the bike as well.
Now...to all you friends who have bikes...or have friends that have bikes. PLEASE PLEASE suggest to them that they invest in Lojack. It may very well be the diffrence between getting your baby back and having it gone. Doesnt matter if it is in a garage or not...doesn't matter if it is chained or not...Protect your bike. No one should have to go through what I am with their bike.
