    My stolen CB350

    So friday night I'm crusing down Nagle road in Chicago and I almost hit a dog that jumped out in the street, and a car driving in an opposite lane almost hits the dog and almost hits me after. So out of concern, I pull over, park my bike and grab the dog. A lady walking her dog offers to take it to her house and hold on to it until animal control comes. One city block and 7 mins later, I come back to where I parked my bike and its gone. 7 mins is all it took, in a perfectly normal neighborhood. I had my key with me but the steering wasnt locked. I'm guessing someone witnessed all this and saw an opportunity and either pulled it into their garage, or a van/truck.

    In case someone here notices it: 1971 CB350 Vin: CB3503086773
    Red, tank badges and side covers are missing, clubman bars, taillight is aftermarket bobber style.

    Any suggestions on what I should do? I already notified the police, but they were little help. I'm wondering if I should call every US state and give them my VIN.

    In the old days we use to hang horse thief's - may be the practice should be brought back.

    Its probably very close nearby. Poke around in alleys and backyards. You'll probably find it dumped somewhere close.

    I have filed a police report. Chicago police are so stupid- while I was filing the report, not only did he ask me for my address three times, but he did it with my ID in his hand.

    I have a strong feeling its still in the neighborhood, but I'm pretty sure its hidden well.

    It may not be hidden so well as I have seen on here that at least 2 bikes stolen were found abandoned in the same area they were taken.

    He was trying to figure out if he could arrest you for something. Making sure your story matched your ID.
