Tony, that’s bad news, and I’m sorry for your loss.

Probably worth advising everyone on here, and the MGCGB forum that your bike has been nicked.

Post photos, model, capacity, engine number, frame number, registration number, anything distinctive to make everyone aware that it’s a stolen bike.

And scan eBay / gumtree / local papers / etc daily.

Good luck
Simon

Post all those details on here and on the MGCGB web site'stolen bikes section ',
Stolen bikes have been recovered before due to MGCGB members spotting ads etc.
More chance of us finding it than the police I shouldn't wonder.
Any neighbors/ local business' got CCTV that might have caught the scum in the act ?

An awful lot of stolen Guzzis turn up fairly local to where they were taken, Pictures make and model they are difficult for thieves to get rid of

Sorry to hear that Tony..
As others have said post details in as many places as you can , will make it harder for the scumbags to pass it on..  Check on Ebay for Guzzi parts in case they try to break it...

Good luck with finding it soon..

At work we are always having tooled up hooded bike and car  thieves This is Loughborough and the police have no interest until someone is hurt . Police will give you a crime number I am amazed they are actually visiting you Thumbs Up Police just don't stand a chance nowadays.

You have all my sympathy Tony. I am paranoid about my bike every time we go away. At least they didn't burgle your house, trying to look on the positive side.

Commiserations Tony. You must feel gutted. When my Commando was stolen many years ago it made me feel ill. I never saw it again.

When my XS1100 yam was stolen I question myself if I had parked it there 
I personally recovered it by spotting.the bike being ridden in traffic and jumping on the back of the bike . The police cheered me when I turned up at the police station .True story
