    I'm sure at least 99% of those bikes were stolen and now the rightful owners have no way of getting their property back.

    The criminals are not the bike owners here. THIS is the sort of thing that angers the public and is why a guy like Donald Trump is going to win the White House in a landslide;
    We are sick and tired of the government treating us like we were juvenile delinquents, that they know what is best for us and that they are outraged we are not grateful to them for all they do for us.

    According to a NYPD friend of mine and backed up by the local cops here, If any of the confiscated bikes show to be stolen, they are set aside as evidence.

    As to the 99 percent, the NYPD guy says less than 10 percent.

    Sorry to burst the bubble that all NY riders are thieving douchebags.

    The cops are instructed to confiscate/impound for even minor infractions.
    Few cops actually do that, though. But there are cases where a bike is taken because someone is not wearing a DOT helmet. All to make a point and fodder for the gestapo politicians, so they can say they "did something".

    All this stems from an incident where a group of douchebags (which included more than the one off duty cop they said was there) who chased down a motorist after that same motorist ran over a douchebag rider that was brake checking him. Both parties at fault, but the angry mob of bikers (douchebags) took it a bit too far.

    So, it looks like a couple of bad apples spoiled the bunch of us.

    If there's one thing people in positions of power hate, it's people doing what they want to feel free. They also hate to have to work, so make blanket statements and pass ambiguous laws that work to their advantage whenever it's convenient. Thus, all bikers are bad. All guns are evil. etc...

    That stinks. I will say that when I worked up there on detail (both NY and Newark), gangs would come out at dark and take over the streets and sidewalks with bikes and ATVs. It was nuts.
