    I had my GasGas and Husky stolen with my trailer at about five-thirty this morning from the hotel I'm staying at. the husky has a blue and white graphics kit from decal works with "Action Sports" on it, the GasGas is stock black with red and white accents. the trailer is a three bunk with a spare partial axel, hub, and wheel, the wiring is all in conduit, and the taillights are 2'' round leds in sealed rectuangular boxes.

    I live in Athens and will keep a look out. Though they're probably out of town by now, what part of town were they stolen from?

    Do you have a picture to post of the trailer? Some way to identify compared to the hundreds of other trailers on the road?

    Really sorry to hear about the theft. +1 on pics of trailer and or bikes. Would you mind telling us the circumstances around the theft? Was the trailer attached to your vehicle and they unhitched and hauled it away or was it parked and they took it when you were away? Your story might help someone else take steps to prevent a similar theft. I sure hope you get your rig back. I hate thieves.

    I midified the trailer a quite a bit so it is easy to spot. it has a 2' reciever welded under the center rail and I have a 3'x2'x1.5' black plastic storage box that slides into it. It has a cut off axel welded to the front of the center rail with a complete hub assembly and spare tire. I also swapped to a larger axel with five lug wheels and larger 12 inch tires, I changed to round fenders that came white and the black paint that I sprayed on them is pealing off. the tail lights are very distinctive, there are 2 -2'' round leds on each side one is the marker and the other is the brake. the wood planks on the trailer are old and warped, that was the last thing I had to replace before I repainted it.

    I wish I had some pictures but I don't think I do.

    it was locked onto my car in the parking lot of the hotel with good lighting and video cameras, they broke the lock. they got the trailer out of the lot without tripping the motion sensors so I don't have video of them but they went through other lots that might have spotted them.

    If I get these back in reasonable condition, I got $500 for the person that finds them.

    you will know the husky when you see it It, I've never seen another one with that sort of color scheme, but only a dummy would leave those plastics on it.
