    I stuck the thread and changed the title (if you don't mind).

    Might be worth a try in regionals? They may not be ADV riders but if they're doing the cannonball, they're one of us, AFAIC. And it's just good karma to help other riders, regardless of tribe.

    Thanks. Star (one of the two riders) is local to me. I don't know her, but happened to find out about her when I visited our local Cycle Gear on the Stella the other week. The guys in the shop noticed my bike and asked if I knew her--she had apparently just left with a megaload of Castrol 2T oil for the rally.

    Jeebus, that sucks. The truck AND the bikes. :bluduh I'm sure they've got contacts, but a little support from the ADV clan would be cool, too.

    Rumors are that the truck has been recovered. That's all I have have heard and it is un-substantiated but from a good source. No details.

    Damn, that sucks. I hope the truck is still functional.

    Damn meth/crack/coke heads.

    I hope karma kicks the thief or thieves so hard in the teeth that they crap molars for a month.

    I forgot to update this thread... I have been so busy. The RCMP found the truck several days later but made the owner wait several more while they watched o see if the person that stole it didn't come back for more. The truck proper had the lock popped and some othe minor physical dame but was otherwise fine. Everything that wasn't nailed down (tools, clothes, gear, food, oil, gas, ...) was taken.

    The owner drove the truck home without incident and life is moving forward.

    This thread could be un-stickied.

    Glad it was recovered.

    The scooters were not being hauled in the truck all the time, it was being used as a support truck for the the rally. i am going to guess it was simply that was they guys "everyday" truck. Living in TN, I am going to guess his has something to do with horses an that means 3/4 ton trucks. He was goign to support at least three scooters on thiis journey.
