Went inside for a few minutes in a small town gas/store. 2-3 people in the lot. Put my gloves by the ignition switch like I always do when leaving the bike for a minute or two..
Came out and only had one Glove! :mad: Some jerk just took one glove to be a jerk I guess
First time I've had anything stolen. Looked on the ground to. Live & learn I guess

I had a bird take a boot insole off the railing from the cabin in Canada several winters ago.
Just sayin' it's possible...

Look for a Michael Jackson impersonator, also another possibility.
Could be worse, they left you the key (and bike, I assume)

Not cool if true. But a REAL jerk would’ve taken your key!

I ALWAYS lock everything up and always take my keys. Plus I’m a key nut, have spare keys everywhere. Even at home I keep everything locked up.

I'm always surprised when traveling through Helmets mandatory states... some people leave their helmets on the bike when parked!

Your experience is why I never leave anything out on the bike.

Like was stated, could have been a bird or maybe a dog?
Only thing we leave on our Trike is the sheepskin seat cover and under it we have Pro Pad Gel seat pads.
Never have lost them yet but if leaving for extended time or a super busy parking lot, I would put them in the trunk also. Sad times we now live in!

On the flip side - we parked our bike in the covered garage of our hotel the other day. The next day was mostly overcast. Third day sun comes out and my wife can't locate her sunglasses. Looked everywhere, nowhere to be found.
As a last resort, I went to the reception desk to ask did by any chance..... Sure enough, somebody found them in the garage the day we arrived and turned them in to the receptionist.
For the record, I'm not talking about $9.99 pair of gas station sunglasses - these were $300 pair of Maui Jim's in Maui Jim's case.

We still have honest, decent people around us. Maybe not everywhere....but still.

Did the gloves have Velcro on them?

A few times my gloves have stuck to an article of clothing and I saw the glove on the ground walking back to the bike.

As an experiment, I clipped a $5 bill to the dash of my GL1800 and left it there, in plain sight, to see when and where it would disappear. It never did. That $5 stayed there for at least ten years, through four different motorcycles, 49 states and close to 200,000 miles. Needless to say, I have never lost anything else off my bikes. Just lucky, I guess.

I'm not lying-- And I always take my key. I laid the gloves on top of the ignition switch
Hey, I didn’t mean to imply you were lying only that there might have been a different reason than theft for the missing glove. It seems very strange only 1 would go missing. As others mentioned, gravity sucking the glove into the dark hole of the bike, Velcro enabling it to move unbeknownst to you, a bird, etc.
Also, it appears you edited your original post in which I thought you said you left your gloves by your keys or something like that. Correct me if I’m wrong, please, ‘cause then I’ll know I’m losing it more than I already know I’m losing it! LOL.

I believe public in general is dishonest. Never leave anything unsecured.
