Angry Stolen 2012 vStrom in Vancouver WA


I am sad to say that one of my triplet boys left the garage door open and a crack head stole my baby.

It may have been seen in Battle Ground, WA today.

Youtube Video of the Truck the guy was driving:

and of his messed up face:

Washington Plate 9B2106, Givi crash bars, Givi potato chip windshield, coocase rear trunk.

Sorry crackpot.

Living in a rural area for so many years myself mostly insulated from crime except for domestic stuff and impaired I find it unsettling to see a glimpse of reality.

Hope you get it back or the equivalent in compensation.

14 tooth for me

That stinks. Looks like such a fine upstanding type too.


Ride every day, it's good for you.

If the perp shows up anywhere near Olympia, I'll drop a dime on him. I hope your insurance Co. treats you kindly.

This really sucks, shared all over the FB cycle forums, the more it is spread around the better chance of finding the bike and dirtbag. I cropped a photo from the video if anybody wants to share. Good luck, hope you find your bike.

I hate thieves. One of the major reasons I moved from the Baltimore-Washington DC area to the country and the land of doctors & lawyers. Hope they nail the creep.

Sorry to hear and see this. I'm not around much, but if I'll keep an eye for it on this side of the river.

Weird that your neighbor from across teh street was just coming in and didn't notice anything strange about a guy pushing your bike out of the garage... I guess some people are in so much of a hurry they don't look around anymore.

Sounds like one of these might have helped with the open garage door (depending on what type of opener you have):
