A 46-year-long motorcycle journey came to an end in Omaha on Wednesday when Don Devault regained possession of his Triumph Tiger. It was stolen from his backyard in 1967.

Authorities in California found the bike as it was on its way out of the country. They discovered it had been stolen and tracked the crime scene back to Omaha.

The long, lost treasure was loaded onto a truck and shipped back its rightful owner.

Devault says he's thrilled to get it back and even though the look has changed, he says he still loves it.

“It's kind of like a woman,” he said. “No matter how they change or how old they get. You always remember the day you first saw it."

Devault said he was anxious to get the bike back on the road but he’s planning a more sedate future for the bike. He plans to get a display for it and put it in his living room.
