Pretty unimpressive reward. You would think they would make it high enough to make it worth it for the thieves to call in a location they saw it at.

Asian professional industrial espionage to steal and replicate to the mass market.

I mean who else?

I kinda agree. The Asian bit I'm sot sold on. Thieving and doubledealing isn't exactly the sole province of our friends from the Pacific Rim.

Maybe some well heeled dink absolutely had to have the third place finisher for a wall hanging in his man cave and payed a couple of knotheads to roll it out. That's a stretch. It's little hard to buy that it got jacked for parts. Maybe Brammo just brought it home and rolled it into the corner with the other mules and some fool employee thought he could treat it better or flip it for beer money or maybe some teenagers got into the bath salts and jumped to stupid when they figured out one of they daddies had keys to the joint sitting on the dresser.

Maybe tech theft or maybe payback. Vic and Brammo have the tech, but really, how much dilithium crystal is there in it? It's a bike, it's electric, it had a bunch of capital and design refinements thrown at it but magic? Doubtful you could demo out an AHA part. If you really need a show and tell piece to base your efforts on, you are showing your ass already. The way you steal tech in century 21 isn't by B&E, it's by offering the engineers another zero on the end of their paychecks and you get all the tech by getting all the brains.

Payback? Somebody would have to be fairly PO'ed to run a theft right out of Brammo's house. Somebody would have decided to make their point by taking Brammo's long gun right off the mantle. Now that's pissed off. I like that theory, I don't buy it but it would make a good movie.

A thousand bucks is a thousand more than I recall ever publicly offered for stolen iron. It's not a lot on the one hand but it's a thousand more than zip. If the thing turns out to be dopes on dope then one large is plenty enough to shake the trees with. Is any more than that enough to get mouths moving over vendetta, or intellectual property theft or some goofy desire to possess the thing? Maybe, maybe not.

Pity a piece of history becomes an insurance loss, or maybe not. Maybe this is just another layer of history that this bike will carry.
