Fuck. Another motorbike theft in Atlanta. Will keep our eyes open here. Good luck. See Cactus Dave's sticky at the top of the thread, maybe we can get this one to the top as well.

I had my xl100 stolen when I was 12. (1984) A week later going home on the back road with my dad from the store we pulled up on a wrecker pulling bikes out of the river. When I saw mine I was so relieved not knowing it was totaled.

I feel for you. I hate thieves!!

Damn that's close to home. I used to live near there in Forrest Hills. There've been a lot of break-ins in my n'hood and the Fellinis was robbed at gunpoint last week. (I can throw a stone at it it's so close.)

I'll keep an eye out. In fact, it gives me an excuse to go ride.

Little Five has ALWAYS been sketchy. Too many bums to be anything other.

From the Peach Buzz:

Raising spirits in Little 5 Points
The home invasion Dec. 3 at Little Five Points musician Chris Devoe’s apartment became a night of horror for Devoe and his girlfriend Rachael Spiewak of the SoPo Bicycle Cooperative. Devoe ended up in the hospital and both were traumatized. Area friends and musicians want to help them heal, and to raise neighborhood spirits at a time when such crimes seem more common. “This is happening way too often to all our friends in Little Five Points and East Atlanta,” said Suzy Moran, organizer of a benefit Thursday for Devoe and Spiewak at the Highland Inn Ballroom. The event will include performances by members of the Black Lips, Noot d’ Noot and others. “We want to make it fun, bring spirits up, and help our friends out,” said Moran. Information: http://blogs.creativeloafing.com/cri...-thurs-dec-9th

Any leads on your bikes? Sorry to hear about your friend.

....agreed. It was cool, maybe, in the late 80's, early 90's when yer crawlin for "cool" bars like The Point - no idea if it's still there, nor would I care to go down there anymore to see...

As for Memorial Drive...well, it'll always be Memorial Dive in my book...if you grew-up here, then you know it's rep. There's been some impresive development and upgrades in that area...but it's still Memorial Drive...sry to hear about yer bike.
