So sad right now.

If anyone sees this. Same bike as in my Avatar.

Bright yellow Olins rear shock, and duo carbon exhaust were a couple of the aftermarket items that make it stand out a bit. Brand new tank, handlebar-end mirrors NO front windshield. (I still have that sitting in my living room to remind me of the pain, I guess.)
So sorry about that. That is awful.

Just one thing.. I'm seeing a photo of a lady in your avatar on here, and the link doesn't work for me. Says it's expired or I'm not able to view.

No bike.

Oh yeah - my head is a bit cluttered right now. That's me - not the bike - the bike is here (IF THIS WORKS):

AND - I tried to drag and drop a photo....
Ugh, so pretty..
Any locks on it?

Did they just pick it up?

I'm constantly paranoid about leaving mine outside too. I have various theft devices, and I lock the steering, if that means anything.. But ultimately for a bike that weighs 400 pounds, I feel there's only so much you can do.

Gone for over a week? If it is found not likely to be in good shape. What a bummer.
Hope insurance does you right, and you can get a new one at least.

Sorry for your loss. If the S2R was not found after one week there is just a slim chance of recovery. Most likely it has been parted out so you should scour CraigsList and ebay for S2R parts and see if somebody is suddenly selling many S2R parts. Good luck.

Installing Trackimo in the instrument cluster with charging wire to the battery will help your peace of mind. The tracker fits in the instrument pod and Trackimo has world wide 3G and GPS real time tracking. First year is free and then $5 monthly. As soon as the bike move even an inch Trackimo sends email and SMS.

Yeah - I realized this right away. I am TOTALLY going to do what you suggest with the tracker, if I ever find another one that is close to this. So far all I see is much older ones with MUCH higher milage, for FAR more money than what I paid for mine.

You may have seen it, but, and I know it's not the dry clutch 1000, but there's a really nice and unusual yellow S2R 800 with insanely low miles for sale on craigslist right now. Skagit Valley.

Sorry to hear of your loss. I am actually looking for parts for my S4 so I will keep my eyes open. They are all over Offer Up in Kent too.

I saw that, but I think it has 15,000 miles? Would really love to get another s2r1000... :( An 800 might do for a while - I'll have to ask about the tank. Mine had 5k on it... That won't happen again, though.

No, it was a yellow one with less than 3 thousand. Tank replaced from swelling..

I'll see if it's still up.
Yep it is..

It says it's had it's 15k service done because of age, not use. Odometer reads 2700! (I mean.. Wow It's new. damn.)
The belts can go wonky if they're left to sit. They set in place and can cause vibration.

$5500, but it's been up a while.. Freeze is about to set in. I bet you could get them to go lower. Looks absolutely bone stock.

Ah, yes I spoke to the guy about those.
I wanted to buy one of his steering dampers :D He wouldn't part them out, but he was helpful.

One of them is very high mileage, so much so that he won't post the number *laff* and I think he's priced them a little high considering the use.. The other is 20k miles.. Looks like they're maintained well though.
Lots of extras, but yeah..

I like them - they look nice, but I have a fondness for the V-twin and the torque - plus I'm small-framed myself, and the weight of the S2R is perfect for me. They do look very well maintained, though. I heard that they are a lot more expensive to have worked on, too (I don't do any of the work myself) because of how hard it is to get at some parts.

Oh daaang. I had the belts replaced on my last one - it wasn't too terribly bad as far as cost. I actually wrote this guy earlier today and asked about the tank being sealed - we'll see if he replies. I had just replaced my tank before the bike was stolen, and had it sealed so that I didn't have to get marine gas every time. Still... 27-- miles - I could deal with having the tank sealed, and the... bright yellow. (That was actually the color of my first Monster, photo attached.)
