It took the cops 46 years, but eventually the stolen motorcycle was returned to its original owner. Wow... 46 years. They don't give up do they?

Okay, I realize that they were not looking for the bike, but still... to have a stolen motorcycle on a 'watch' list for 46 years is impressive. My question though is "does he now have to return his insurance money?"...
