The owner of a 2005 Yamaha YZF-R1 motorcycle contacted the Miami Police Department to report their motorcycle stolen from their home. The Miami PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Yamaha.

A Miami-Dade Police Department officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen YZF-R1 motorcycle on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) a short while later. The officer began tracking the stolen motorcycle by following the directional and audible cues on their PTCs screen. The officer was joined in the tracking by an officer from the Hialeah Police Department. The officers located the motorcycle parked in a parking space in an apartment complex parking lot in the 11000 block of Okeechobee Road. The motorcycle was recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping, and removed from federal and state crime computer systems.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2005 Yamaha YZF-R1 motorcycle in August 2005 at Motoport USA Corporation in Miami, Florida.
