SEATTLE — It took just two minutes for thieves to steal a heavy motorcycle in the Central District early Sunday morning.

But they didn’t hot wire the bike, instead they  simply picked it up and tossed it into the bed of a pickup truck before driving away.

The whole thing was caught on security camera and now the owner of the motorcycle has posted the video online in the hope of recovering his property.

“[A] couple of guys just stroll up, throw my bike in their beat up truck and drive off,” wrote Drew G on YouTube.

According to the time on the security camera footage the crime happened just after 2:15 a.m. Sunday.

Drew wrote that it happened on 22nd Ave between E. Cherry and Columbia.

“Anyone else in the area have experience with this?” he wrote on Seattle reddit.

    Drew G here: Just want to remind everyone that putting a disc lock, U-lock, or motion alarm is not always enough. If you park a motorcycle on the street, chain it to something solid like a light pole!

    Have had two motorcycles stolen. One in Everett right after work (they watched me) about 12:30 am and the other at night in Texas. Theft insurance is a must. Only one out of two of mine were insured
