Yesterday morning when I left for the workshop I noticed on the corner of my road a lone motorcycle, parked outside a neighbours house on the road. In my head I thought this was odd as I have never seen a bike at that house prior but I left for work regardless.
Later that night I ride towards my home and I notice that the bike was still there, now at this point Im surprised that the bike hasn’t been stolen - but oh boy was I wrong - after logging onto faceache the first thing I get on my News Feed ” Stolen From Tree Estate ” so after clicking onto the post I am presented the same bike I had seen parked up on my road. After a quick check on the plate I confirmed it was the stolen bike and got in contact with the owner. Surprisingly the owner only lived a stones throw away from me so he set out to meet me.
After what seemed a quite tense meeting of the owner and his dad we then set off to push the bike up the mother of a hill it was parked at the bottom of… but once the hard work was over all was happy and we went our separate ways.
Recently in my area alot of thefts have been going on and many motorcycles have gone missing and 99% of the time these bikes are never to be seen again or at least in the same condition they were in and I think i speak for most of us that when a stolen recovered bike comes back - its not the same. defiled is the only way I could put it.
I am just glad I was able to reunite this little bike back with its rightful owner, all it cost me was some time and a couple of mobile minutes to really make someones day and if I cant be happy with that… well… that makes me a real fucked up cunt.
So why do I write this: because if this were to happen to me, If it were my bike stolen; I would expect that maybe someone out there would care enough to keep an eye out or try to think back on that dodgy looking bike and take some action like I did.
Perpetuating good and all that jazz. Its nice you know!
