Help! Stolen Bike.

Woke up this morning to find that my bike was stolen. 3 dogs and they are all heavy sleepers I guess.

Anyways I would appreciate if you could keep your eyes out for it. I know it isn't much, but I would like to find it before it becomes some wanna-be-orange-county chopper or something.

Pics:


It has a 4-wire trailer plug that hangs off the left tail:


Please call the local police if you spot her.

Thanks.

Shoot. Sorry to hear about the stolen bike. I will keep my eyes out for it. Hopefully the dude/ette will be pulled over on it.

Thanks all!

To just put the icing on the cake; notice in the first picture that my timing cover had fallen off? 5 minutes after I post this I get an email from ebay telling me my new timing cover has shipped.

Dear thief,

I still have the top box, tank bag, and GPS that goes on the bike. Drop by and I will have them ready for you.

There's also the chance, now that it's light, the thief will see what they got
and just bring it back.


Sorry, too soon?

Thievery sux........but when they're stupid thieves.......they suck even more.....who would steal a Buell.......

I'm betting kids.....have you gone through the adjoining neighborhood?

BTW, that cover on ksl ads might get a quicker bite......

BACON FESTIVAL....

I'm gonna get some..........

While Hick is riding up to the canadian border, I will post a few pics of his bike being put back together.
Moto Medic came out to our shop to pull the engine and split the cases.


It took him about 3 hours to pull the engine and another 2 1/2 hours to split the cases.


The damaged case.


Parts everywhere.




Got the case welded in Spokane and back to our shop. Moto Medic starts putting it back together. Yesterday, he finished and he and Hick started putting the engine back in the bike.





Getting the carbs on.


Nothing left but the seat.


Bike seemed to run ok.


He should be pretty close to the border right now. Have a safe ride Hick, and see you in November.

I am afraid my weekend is booked up as well. Let's do it some other time.
