STOLEN:Red 26ft Haulmark trailer **FOUND**

I dont have a pic, but its a red 26ft Haulmark trailer with LAKE CYCLE in white vinyl on all sides. There was 5 new motorcycles inside.

VTX1300T
VTX1300R
VTX1800F
GL1800
CB250 Nighthawk

It was taken around 11:45 sunday night, from the dealership in Merrillville, IN, by 3 individuals in a white heavy duty dodge ram 4-door. possibly a diesel truck.

7911 Taft St
Merrillville, IN 46410

turn right out of your dealership.. head north about 10 miles.. when you get to the end of the road turn left or right.. drive around a bit.. it's over there
im sure you'll find it.. you can see through most of the buildings in that town.. so even if it is inside you might be able to see it..
maybe the guys at " in the wind" are having a bon fire with the reliable bikes they hate so much.. might wanna stop in there... cover your colors

yes, but not good enough for a plate or description of peoples. looks like 3 guys in a white 2500 or 3500 heavy duty 4 door ram pickup. the new body style, so 07+?

also, we found how they got the tongue open. id rather not post details, but if you have a trailer sitting somewhere, get a lock that shields the lever that locks the ball down, and dont rely on the one that locks the lever down.

That always looked pretty easy to get past to me.

Sorry to hear about the theft.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

i left work before they were off the phone with the police, but the cops were asking for VIN numbers, so id imagine the bikes are in there still. that or they found a crapload of other bikes and need to pick ours out of there.

none of the bikes were tied down in the trailer as we used it for storage of bikes that were doubles of what was already on the floor, so first left turn they made i imagine was quite loud as all the bikes were just sidestanded in there.

we'll know more in the morning.

maybe someone could put **FOUND** in the thread title.
