Where do stolen bikes end up?

Bikes stolen by opportunistic thieves are probably stolen so they can ride them... you may find the bike in the next street or the next county, or a smart one would sell it one interstate and use the money to buy a legit bike... but then how many crims are that smart to start with huh?
I think the number checking is a great idea, it is all you basically have, but the admin and logistics of it is a huge job... the local/fed police would be the ones to hold a list of stolen numbers, then you need someone to be running those numbers at the track... It's a bit like drug testing, you have to catch them on the day, so they have no warning...
Nice idea, maybe you could invite the local police to the track one day to run the numbers... see what they find...

Tanks, shocks, swingarms hubs and all are sold to other scum bags to to repair their broken down pieces of garbage.
The other bad thing here is most of the guys who do the thieving are doing it to buy a 10 buck bag of crack or a 10 dollar bag of weed. The guys who buy it, are usually selling the crap to the thieves..
Its a twisted world we live in.

That might be kinda hard to check everyone at the track with everyone painting their frames nowdays.

I am however totally opposed to a registration process because it is just another way for the government to take your $$.
I always have my bike locked in my garage and stay with them at the gas station. I just ask my friend/brother to get me something while there in the store. It only takes a split second to take one and the police don't do crap about it here in Vegas. When you call 911 they put you on hold for like 2-3 minutes. It's a joke.
Anyway, back to the point, here in Nevada most of the bikes just get ridden and then sold. You would be surprised how many people don't have the title for their bike when they sell it private party.
