    That sucks VAC. Sorry I couldn't be there to pick up the KLR :shog. Seriously though, going down in the dark on I95 and walking/limping away is pretty darned lucky. Glad you're ok.

    Cop just left, he said there's been a few bikes stolen in the area lately.

    Lock your stuff up!

    SHIT! That sucks buddy. Sorry to hear that :cry We'll be on the lookout.

    You can try using Searchtempest.com to see regional craigslist in one - who knows it may pop up on the eastern seaboard somewhere.

    The cop told me they usually pop up in PG county. I've been searching on there already, lol.

    Can't afford a garage unfortunately.

    Damn brother, that sucks. As much of a needle in a hay stack kind of situation it may be, I hope they find the bastards and nail them to the cross. :mulie

    do you use a disc lock or anything else to maybe slow them down while they do their nasty work? I worry about mine in a locked garage in DC, use a disc or cable lock on them too, maybe make it tough enough that they give up or make enough noise that someone hears it.

    Will keep my eye out if I'm in PG Co

    You just recently acquired that bike too. I wish you the best in recovering and hope that if you do recover it, that it's still in excellent shape.
