Not much of an update, have been busy full time with retirement :-) Seriously cut trees down, worked in yard etc. Talked to the dealer, they were not too concerned as they have either sold or sent the bike to an auction. They did get a copy of the letter.
To be clear I have no legal claim to the bike as I have sold it (traded) to the dealer. I have copies of the paperwork so if anyone should come after me it will be vey simple. I sold the bike legally and am no longer the owner. Tomorrow I'm going to inquire of the police to see what the status of the bike is. My only interest is if the owner does not retrieve it from impound then it will be sold at auction. I would be interested in buying it at auction if the price is low enough and the bike has not been trashed. Part of me does not want to see my old bike trashed by someone. However if I felt it had not been terribly abused I would be interested in buying it at auction. Im somewhat curious as to the history of the bike. When I sold it it was a 2014 with 7,000 miles stock with the addition of a Ohlins race damper. For someone to have purchased the bike Im guessing they would have spent $7,000 to $9,000. Im amazed at folks who have that kind of money to throw away. At the same time I also understand a lot of folks never register their bikes or put a tag on them.
My expectation is either the legal owner shows up and claims or it will be sold at auction. Possible legal owner got caught up in something and left the bike somewhere and it got towed and they cannot get back to get it. I think storage fees can add up quickly.
I'll try and get an update Friday.
