My Streamliner was stolen Saturday night July 19 between 10 pm and 9 AM Sunday morning July 20, 2014.

The Streamliner and the trailer were taken from the Holiday Inn Express Kankakee / Bradley, Illinois. Officer St. Louis, a biker himself, responded and began the investigation. I had a good feeling about this man.

11:05 PM Sunday night, July 20: The Bradley Illinois  Police Dispatcher called to say the bike has been recovered, but not the trailer. That is all they would say but that somebody will call me tomorrow.  I may be needing a trailer to go home.

3 pm Monday, July 21: Detective Wolters met me at the towing company. I did not know what to expect. Since the Streamliner is so unlike anything else, Detective Wolters had no idea if it was OK or damaged. After a quick look, it was clear that the "perps" had not used the ramp and simply pushed it off the trailer. Most of the electrical plugs were disconnected, as well as the battery. Otherwise, things looked OK. The good stuff was missing from the cargo hold: The Corbin seat, my leather jacket, helmet, gloves, etc.

Disappointing. But I was sure glad to get the Streamliner back. I would like this bike to be in a museum someday. It would have been a great loss had we not recovered it.

My dear friend Ed Rutkowske drove up from Rantoul with his trailer to help. Detective Wolters pitched in, too. It cost me $120 to "free" my Streamliner from the towing company. Doesn't seem right that I have to pay for this, does it? Detective Wolters said he wasn't done with this case. Maybe he will catch the bad guys and they will have to reimburse me for the $120 yet!

Just in case my trailer was not found, Ed had already located a replacement trailer carried by a Farm and Fleet Store... one of those great mid western Farm Super Stores we don't have in California. By 5 PM, Monday evening, my streamliner was lashed down and I was ready to roll. For now, I must carry it backwards because the tail extends beyond the trailer. We'll fix that when I get home. I'll cut a slot in the ramp

Thank you all for your concern and help.

You guys are great!

Craig
