    Recovered Stolen Skis

    My brother and I helped recover a pair of stolen skis today. We took our skis to the carwash to wash out his bay. While there we noticed a pair of skis sitting out behind the mechanics shop next to the wash. A nice little Genisis and a 06 Kawi 15. We asked the mechanics if they were there to be fixed, or for sale, and they had no idea who's they were. Apparantely they had been dropped off during the weekend and no one showed up again. We dug through the skis looking for registration, none, but I did find an insurance card. Owner was from a town about 40 min away. Luckily my bro's GF was from that town and just happened to know their nephew. A couple of calls later and the guy came and picked them up. Had been missing for about a week. Only had liability on both of them. Kinda nice to know we saved a guy $15K. Makes a good day.

    Lesson learned: Lock your shit up, and then, put on another lock.

    I'll be honest, my first thought was "Where can I find a couple of HIN plates?". They were really beautiful skis. If it hadn't been for the Genisis, I never would have went and looked at them. I have hardly ever seen another Polaris around this area.

    Only liability?? Is insureance that expensive there that he couldn't afford full coverage? Full coverage runs me around $35 a month for 3 skis.

    Were the police notified about the find? Sounds fishy to me that the mechanic didn't know anything about them???

    Don't thieves always steal things and then leave them behind unsavory mechanics' shops? I agree, that definitely sounds suspicious.....

    I wish somebody was as alert as you when my motorcycle was stolen!
