Crap...

So sorry to hear about the theft. I have been away for a couple of days and am just catching up on the past few pages...

Sending good thoughts and prayers your way.

The motorcycle community is a tight one. The love of bikes and adventure is what bonds many of us here. I am confident that things will work out, one way or another.

Sometimes on trips it is the worst of times that make the best stories. In my travels I have found that there are so many people out there that are good people. It is a few bad eggs that spoil it for the rest. As you can see from the past few pages, there are many great people who want the best for you.

Best of luck,

Jeff G.

Maybe too early but......

I have been following this website (http://www.biker.ie/forum/showthread...=180627&page=4) while catching up on the olympics this morning and guess what was just posted.......

"Believe this bike has been recovered, no idea what state its in though! "



Edit: No such luck......

I got a call also. I was in the Garda station and its false. It seems everyone wants it to be retrieved so badly. I believe they have found a few other bikes from the area though. It makes me happy to know that since my situation has gotten so much attention locally other people will get their bikes back.

Sorry this happened you in my city.

As an advrider subscriber on this site and in Dublin I'm embarrassed this has happened you in the city I grew up in and a city I like so much.
Dublin is not without it's crime, but crime against person and property is as opportunistic as anywhere. A diamond of a ktm like yours only secured with a disc look is gold dust to a thief in an urban setting, still no excuse in an idealistic world.

I work in the commuter belt outside Dublin now and am often still in the city. In my job as a paramedic my colleauges and i have the opportunity to go into these areas for work reasons. I promise you I will keep my eyes peeled for any sign of your bike over the next few days and in particular over the next weeks as the hype dies down and the thiefs let their guard drop and possibly start to use the bike or move it around.

I'll post an update on my Facebook page also with bike details and I'll pass the word around the guys at work to keep an eye open for it too.
Hope it turns up soon man.

Don't know how much it'll help you now & getting a lock just as tuff may be difficult. But a couple decades ago I bought a specially hardened steel chain at a quality hardware store & recall the sales person struggling & swearing like a drunken sailor trying to cut it with a biggass set of bolt cutters. Another experienced salesperson was laughing & after a while brought over a grinder with a cutting disk & it still took a while to cut through. Might be worth looking into, all I can remember is it was gold colored unlike any of their other chains there. Wish I still had it, expensive as hell, but unmatched for strength. Unfortunately it was in the back of my truck when it was stolen.

Which is a prime reason why I hate thieves with a passion.

Hi Noah,

Sorry to hear what happened to you. Hope you'll find your bike.


I have the Abus Granit Extreme Plus 59 (Click video) which is excellent and makes me sleeping pretty comfortable. I am not sure, maybe the Almax is even better cause with 19mm, the bolt-clipper has such a big angle that not enough pressure can be exerted to break it apart.


Hope you will continue your trip.

I use the squire and almax chain. Happy with it and will take time to get through. Though the concrete anchor would be a hassle to carry ;-)
