I am sure this love, peace and happiness gathering of sweat hearts will be caught totally off guard by people coming looking for their stuff.So get 3 buddies, a couple of weapons, some cash, and go find your bike.

Yeah definitely be cautious and if it's THAT bad I'd just write it off as lost. I've volunteered at those camps in Philadelphia so I'd be a bit more comfortable probably, BUT if I had any trepidation, as gorgeous as that bike is, and as much as I'm sure you love it, it's simply not worth it. That said, from my experience they stole the bike with the intentions of selling it. If it's at the camp, they're looking for heroin and they'd much rather have that then a bike. Plus, a local pawn shop would have trouble taking it cause the rarity and value. It might be a professional, and if it was it's gone, but if it's at that camp my bet is $200 would get it back. Yes, there's a chance they'll just take the money, but typically those people operate in the shadows, and when confronted with a few guys they're not gonna wanna fight. Good luck, and like I said, don't do it unless your comfortable either in yourself or the guys who tag along....and if it shows up on the trail, then a difficult discussion will have to be had. That bike will be impossible not to spot, if it re-emerges in your neck of the woods. One of a kind.
I would take precautions and high tail it to that camp, cash in hand, as suggested above.
...as an aside, I googled "homeless camp Coyote Creek" and was pretty shocked at what I saw. Take precautions. Personally, I would be worried about saying you had $200 on you. I would be very concerned about having the $hit beaten out of me for my shoes and the $200, and leaving there in an ambulance without the bike. I would bring 2 large friends straight into the camp with me, preferably ones who have had a little street mileage.
Did you have it insured or can you claim it from your car insurance? I gotta look into it tomorrow now that I'm thinking about. I see a lotta bikes that cost more than the car that driving em, so probably a good idea to make sure it's insured.Unfortunately cable lock, but it was a clean cut. Regardless no bike is leaving my sight.
"can you claim it from your car insurance?"...........NO!Did you have it insured or can you claim it from your car insurance? I gotta look into it tomorrow now that I'm thinking about.

Really am devastated for you ... I literally just stare at my bike sometimes like it's a piece of art, or even worse,, I'll take a picture of it then zoom in and stare at it some more. No doubt your bike is art and I'm really hoping you check back in with some good news!
What ayah mean? You got away with itThat really stinks.
Couple years ago my friend and I drove down to watch red bull. He locked his bike on my truck, and forgot to bring the key
We cut it off in about 10 seconds in the hotel parking lot
People walking by didn't even give us a second look.
Definitely can't leave a bike on a vehicle.

This may be the first time in history that someone has wished a thief got more money for their fenced goods than less.My State Farm vehicle Insurance will cover bike theft and if yours doesn't it's time to go with another company. Hopefully one or more had a fatal OD with the many bags they scored with this NOT so cheap bike.
I will break it down for you. You said you hope the thief overdoses with the extra money they should get for such a nice bike. I pointed out that you were hoping they get more money for the bike than most would get in hopes they overdose. Are you able to track that line of thought?Try making a little more sense next time! Or maybe you think this bike will only get them two $20 bags?
