Man, I spent about 5 solid hours on the Super Enduro at Durahmtown yesterday and had a blast. Wish I knew there was another 950 there. Probably the best off roading around for a twin.

Stolen KLR in Rome

Something has to be done about thieves around here .

I just got a phone call from my friend Gary. His red '08 KLR was stolen from his garage, along with some other items, last night. I didn't get to many details from him because he was kinda dumbfounded at the time, and rightfully so. I'll update this when I can talk to him after the shock has worn off and get more info. Taken from the Bell's Ferry area of Floyd Co., GA.

What I know about the bike currently:

Red '08 KLR650
SW Motech crash bars
Big Gun Race Series exhaust (it is very loud)

Here's an older pic I have of the bike. It's not very helpful since the bike was brand new when this was taken and looks like any other red 08.

You should cross-post this on Georgia Offroad, if you haven't already. If you don't have an account there, let me know and I will do it.

I'll be on the lookout. I've gotta get a motion detector for my garage.

I didn't make it out. sinus infection and the wife was home friday from work sick as well.

I did get out this afternoon just for a bit out towards acworth with Fried Duck and had some fun.

Dec. 1st will be at Highland Park with the 450 and 950.

how was the 950 at DP? what tires were you running? the tires that came on mine are shot. I'll probably put on an MT16 rear and something more dirt oriented on the front as well.

I tried something new Saturday. A couple of my friends have gotten big into AHRMA racing so I went with them to Aonia for an event. I watched the trials, which was really cool. Then I ran my KDX in the open class TT race. It's half flat track and half old school MX. What a blast!!! It was awesome watching the old Nortons, BSA's, etc blistering the track.

I'm sure plenty of you guys have seen this stuff before-but if you haven't, it sure is fun.

I will for sure keep my eyes out for this bike!
We seem to always have this problem at the holidays with the little dirt bikes I have had friends in dawsonville and cumming that have had their kids dirt bikes stolen out of the garage of the house while they were home!!
You know average family inside watching a football game and everyone home you leave the garage open!
Hell at my house we leave the garage open and that tells all the neighbor kids to come up and hang out if the garage is shut they figure we are not home or sick or something But we have quit doing that because of the fuckin thieves.
They actually walked in my friends garage in the middle of the day on a Saturday and just rolled the little xr bikes out the door and nobody saw or heard shit!
I close my garage most of the time but when it is open I have the 300 mag loaded on the top shelf in the garage so they better move fast out of sight (with the 300 I have alot of range) or they are gonna lose a knee!!

Thanks GaM - never knew that! Tuna, there are more photos here & here. Picture hobbitland. Boulders as big as large homes with narrow passages between them, and some places you can easily scramble up on top of to get a great view of lake Weiss.

Back to moto-stuff, if you're in the market for a Ural there's suddenly a bunch of 'em for sale locally. Weird.

Man, I hate to hear that about your friend's KLR. I go through that area and into Cedartown a lot, I'll keep an eye out. Hope he finds out something soon......
