Christian is a writer living in Toronto, Canada, who shares his home with his dog, Luna.

The bond between some motorcycles and their riders isn’t easily broken.

In fact, Camey Walker made sure of that by installing a surveillance system to keep an eye on her beloved Yamaha.

Unfortunately, in early May, that didn’t stop brazen thieves from rolling the bike out of her garage in Phoenix, Arizona, according to Fox 10 News.

In the news video, Walker recalls how she had customized the bike, complete with pink rims and trim.

A distraught Walker turned to police, the charity motorcycle club she belonged to, and most importantly, social media.

The video of her bike being stolen was shared thousands of times.

Even so, Walker’s chances of getting back her bike seemed remote. After all, stolen things don’t often find their way home again. We’ve even seen an entire mobile home vanish into seemingly thin air, never to be seen again.

There are, of course, some happy endings — like when this man was reunited with his dog years after having him stolen.

Walker may not have realized it at the time, but she too was on the road to a happy ending. Her bike had become so recognizable, thanks to the social media attention, thieves may have realized they wouldn’t be able to sell it.

Just a couple of weeks after her bike went missing, Walker got a call from her daughter.

“She said, ‘Mom your bike is here,’” Walker told Fox 10.

Someone had just left the bike on the edge of her driveway.

“Sharing it actually got my bike back,” she says, fighting back tears.

Let no thief come between them again.
