These people have been pretty stupid and had no idea how to steal a bike. I found my bike in Aachen, Germany with a destroyed ignition lock and a lot of cowling damage. There was one witness and he stated that it was a Dutch guy in a chopper who spotted the bike and came back with two friends to "do the job" with the excuse that it was their bike.
As a bonus they stole my helmet and they locked the bike on a bike fence. The latter was simply solved, but the helmet is gone of course. Ignition lock and battery destroyed, fuel cap was open so i dont know if something has been put in there, lots of plastic damage.
I will wait the police report and their investigation. The witness will be questioned at the station and in the meanwhile I am going to save up some money for a reward that leads to the thieves. Be aware that I don't take kindly on thieves. Be VERY aware about this. The person that comes forward with usable information that leads to the whereabouts of the thieves will be rewarded and I will hope for them that the Police will arrive sooner than I do.
