Stolen Trail Bikes

Post by Sparkton » Thu Oct 13, 2011 6:47 pm

I got up this morning to discover the one of the worst incidents a biker could have? Garage door open, and no motor bikes where you left them the previous evening!

I cant believe it! there was a EXC525 and a DT125LC. The Ktm was even stripped for service and all of the plastics, tank seat, and headlight were stashed elsewhere in the garage --- all gone!
My lads DT was taken, and even my mountain bike to add insult.

Looking at it now, i know i should have had beefier security but, its a thing to get around to doing?

Anyway, the reason for the post is that the police (who have been brilliant) told me to post to ABR ( who I told I was a member ) that there is a massive increase in this type of thefts of Trail Bikes over the last year.
The police think that it is because they can be stripped and used as dirt bikes with no history (which is normal for a crosser) rather than say an R1 that can only be used as a registered (?) road bike, or track bike.

Please check your security as i didn't think this would ever happen to me, to be proved very wrong!

Please email me if you see a unusually cheap 525 kicking around on any of the sites?

Cheers

Sorry to hear about the theft Sparkton.
I'll keep an eye out for you down this way :)
"The trails of the world be countless, and most of the trails be tried.

You tread on the heels of many, till you come where the ways divide.

And one lies safe in the sunlight, and the other is dreary and wan, Yet you look aslant at the Lone Trail, and the Lone Trail lures you on....

....Bid good-bye to sweetheart, bid goodbye to friend, The Lone Trail, the Lone Trail, follow to the end.

Tarry not, and fear not, chosen of the true;

Lover of the Lone Trail, The Lone Trail waits for you"
