RECOVERED: 2007 Daytona Graphite, Maryland

About a month ago my bike was stolen from Jessup, MD. So far it hasn't been found in Baltimore or DC.
So please keep a heads up for any graphite parts going around on ebay or facebook or craigslist.

The only distinguishing features are the Brembo master cylinder, the stickers and scratches on the right fairing, the tail is cracked, and the tank right-side decal is messed up. The exhaust is the TOR. The dash has faded spots all around it possibly due to brake fluid, and the trip/scroll buttons don't work anymore. Puig windscreen, too. 40,000+ miles.

I believe There’s a special place in hell for people who steal other people hard earned toys. I always hope that these people crash on the bike they steal, get hurt terribly bad but live to really regret this disgusting decision.

I hope you had theft.

so i got the bike back yesterday. someone had crashed it in front of an Autozone a few towns over. then they ditched it on the side of the road which is so often the case. the tank had been spray painted, and all stickers were removed. the ignition was busted but i can't get the bike to turn on. maybe that's why they ditched it.

i wonder what the bike had been through. i wonder about who was riding it and how they treated the bike. it was obviously stolen to be joy-ridden rather than be parted out. so i wonder how they liked it. and how did they crash anyway? was it a wheelie gone wrong? could they just not handle the bike well on a crowded street? one witness didn't see the crash but saw the guy ditch the bike and walk away. full black leathers, red helmet with silver visor., average height and build.

the damage would be enough to total it, but really this bike is repairable. i'll never find another set of graphite plastics. instead, i will resurrect this one as a track-only bike.

i'll post a couple pics later.

Good to hear you atleast got it back! Assuming that the rider that crashed it stole it, I dont think they had much experience with motorcycles. Most of the time stolen motorcycles are parted out or used to commit other crimes.

Hopefully that POS broke some bones, suffered some internal bleeding and road rash to the bone.

If you had theft this is a win win. Let them pay you for the bike, buy it back turn it into a track bike And then use the $ to get another street bike. This is what I did with my gsxr 750.

POS thieves. Hope karma finds them and exacts a brutal penalty. Glad you got the bike back but the whole hassle factor of it all. And was it insured or not?

i am ashamed to say it was not fully covered. i had the bike for seven years and 40k miles. full insurance vs liability-only in maryland is a very big difference in $$$. i knew i was risking uncovered damages if i ever went down on the bike, but maybe i was foolish. i refused to install frame sliders, too. my ultimate stupidity was not locking up the bike consistently every day.
