Here is a website I founs a while back and still go to it every now and again to check up on potential buys. I thought I would post it up here and after it gets some attention, I'll probably stick it so that it's easy to come back to. I don't want to stick it now as it may not get the attention it deserves.

Go ahead, try it out. Here is a known stolen VIN to play with... JS1GR75A2H2100562

BTW, if anybody ever comes up with that VIN on a frame, give me the address where it is, and I'll give you something for your trouble.

Yeah, that's why I use it. You see a lot of frames without paperwork these days and there's really no reason to assume they are stolen right off the bat, but there's also no sense in building before you know, and anything without a title should be suspect and checked. I like the site becuse I can check the VIN before even going to look at it as long as the seller will give it to me, and if he won't... Well, he probably should get a visit from somebody else instead.

Keep in mind that this only works if the bike was reported to the insurance company. If the owner didn't have full coverage insurance, it probably will not be on there.

In Ohio you have to insure any licensed motor vehicle.It's a state law.
That sucks!

If it was like that here in FL i could only afford one bike.

I was also asking cause if is only the insured bikes in that list, then that would mean that 80% of the bikes down here would not be there when stolen.

The funny thing for me is that the GSXR was only the 2nd bike I ever got full coverage on, and that was because it was mint and very hard to come by. The first one was my Dads old bike, and since it was also old and irreplacable, that was why I did it. All of my bikes are paid for, but even still, I now carry full coverage on everything but the dirt bikes/quads after what happened with the GSXR. I suppose it only takes one time to convince you to do it.

Insurance is not by state, it covers you no matter where in the US you may be, so when you file a claim, it goes into this nationwide database.
