Had One Stolen 30 Years Ago (Am finally over it)

Not bad for 35 yrs old
I had a 1980 gs1110e 30 years ago and it was stolen. 30 years later I saw this for sale $1,200 in wyoming it was a one owner bike with all records. oil changes, lubrication, every little repair was logged. It runs great. There is only one difference I have theft insurance this time as well as an alarm.
Editor's Note: Years ago, my wife and I bought our first bikes together, a matched pair of Hodaka Ace 100's which we loved. We rode them to school (The University Of New Mexico), took them up into the foothills for enjoyable trailrides and romantic interludes in the desert. One day my wife took hers to class, properly locked it up with chain and padlock, and came out after class to find the bike missing. She was heartbroken, and like your scenario, we didn't have comprehensive coverage against theft to protect our investment. Pennywise but pound foolish. Thanks so much for your contribution A. P.
