    Today at ~4am, some A-holes stole my single most prized possession. The front tire of my KLR650 went flat while parked two days ago... probably to ensure my reasonably awesome motorcycle would still be sitting in the driveway when said A-holes could return with their towing vehicle. I live in Mid-City L.A., so I figure the chances of finding my steed amongst the sprawl are extremely slim. But! But if you have any information leading to the return of my pre-apocalyptic adventure machine, there's a cash reward in it for you! Can't hurt to let me know if you see any KLR engines on your local craigslist with ~18000 miles on em! The "Mission" sticker is no longer on the bike, and the hand guards are red.

    License #: 17Y2405
    VIN: JKAKLEA186DA20306
    Engine #: KL65009EA20306

    Might as well share some fun memories with you guys:

    ^^^This, minus the dust, is most closely what the bike looks like now. I just got back from Burning Man.

    The luggage isn't lost, except for the Givi case.

    It's probably someone close by. You have to look them in the face all the time. I caught a thief one-time, lived less than a block from me. Stuck a gun in his face while I held him till the police arrived. Caught him inside the car, at 3:00am. I dressed in black and hid in the shadows. Clubs closed at 0130, he was giving people time to come home pass out, then he would come out thieving. They chewed my ass out. Released him, within 30 min. F**&()#Thieves! Saudi will cut their hands off, here they get released. Too much money to be made selling insurance and locks.

    The guy hasn't logged in since the day after his first and only post. He ain't coming back.
