I have fantastic news! We got Taylor's dirt bike back!!
We received a call a little bit before noon today that Taylor's dirt bike was reportedly found behind Pinedale's Recycling Center. When we arrived we were ecstatic to see that it was truly Taylor's dirt bike! Taylor was so excited that I think he was literally speechless! The sheriffs wouldn't let us take it right away because the detectives needed to still process the scene and take fingerprints. The detectives didn't have any luck getting good prints, but they are determined to find out who stole the bike.
The bike did have some of the stickers removed and the throttle was broken, but other than that it was it good shape. We are so thankful that it was still in such good condition. We took it home and Taylor fixed the throttle and a few short hours later Taylor was out riding it again!
I want to thank everyone for the words of encouragement and for spreading the news far and wide of the bike being stolen. I truly believe that there was so much talk about the dirt bike being stolen and so many friends and people we don't even know looking for the bike that the crooks got scared and "dumped" the bike before they got caught with it!
I want to give special thanks to Dawn Ballou for posting that Taylor's dirt bike was stolen along with the photo on pinedaleonline.com because the gentleman (I never did get his name, but I believe the sheriffs said it was Dennis) that spotted Taylor's bike recognized it right away because of Dawn's story! I also would like to thank our Sublette County Sheriff's Department, they were awesome to work with and kept in good contact with us over the last several days.
Thank you again to everyone for all of your help! Just when I was losing faith in people because of our situation, you all proved that there is still good by reaching out and helping. God Bless All of You and Thank You!
