Hello All the bike was stolen from my home during sale in Upstate New York. Stolen On Easter Sunday around 4:00pm by Mel Henley; during the showing of the bike. He used his real facebook account he’s , known to use on a day-to-day basis to contact me. Showed up with another driver in his personal Black SRT-8 Grand Cherokee Jeep. During test ride, took off. The Bike was on empty, the thief had to stop and fuel somewhere going towards Buffalo, from Fairport/Macedon area. Mel was spotted on the highway speeding on my ZX10R and had someone following in his Black Jeep. He used his real fb to contact me and it led me to trust him. Portrayed to be a nice guy. Came to my place he looked legit. Told me he’s got a wife and he has a baby. Was pretending to be an honest buyer.

Hope it gets resolved. Any cameras catch the Jeep plates? Links to his facebook? Seems odd but there should be plenty of facebook info in his profile including his "friends". Take screenshots before he closes it.

Highway tolls booths caught the Jeep and my bike together also neighbors house cameras caught the Jeep. I should have recorded the guy and took pictures of his Jeep but I didn’t. He pretended that it was his wife driving the Jeep and She was looking to get some refreshments at the local gas station as he a proceeded to approach me .

Melvin was from Buffalo? I believe that. But I would've pegged him as a Fairport scumbag stealing a bike on a test ride. Those people are shady. Those of us from Greece stayed away from that part of town. ;)

I hope you got the bike back then, or the $9k you agreed to for it. Ugh. Thieves suck. I hope that appearance ticket he got has more than a $100 fine for it. 😖

This is a hard lesson to learn, but whenever selling bikes to private parties there are NO TEST RIDES without cash in hand. In most of the cases, the sales receipt is written up with a 30 minute return policy after the deal is done. The deal is dome, they pay for the bike, they get the keys and a copy of the receipt, and they leave for the first ride. If they find something wrong with it, they can bring it back in 30 mins in the same condition for the money back. Otherwise, they just get to kick the tires and take selfies with it. The first ride on it is after they bought it. Just like at the dealer.
