KTM 690 stolen in Dublin.
 
I've been in the country for less then 8 hours. This was supposed to be the 2nd leg of my RTW. My 2010 KTM 690 was taken from the corner of Talbot Place and Talbot street in Dublin in broad daylight. I was in a near by hostel resting after an overnight flight. I put a padlock through the front break but they cut the lock with a bolt cutter. Obviously it wasn't enough. There was no luggage on it at the time.

The bike is white with a Rally Raid fairing. Minnesota licence plate 12071MH

Thank you. On the plus side.. I do have all my luggage. I might be continuing on another bike if my Katy M is gone. Let me know what you will sell me for cheap :confused1:

Sorry to hear that - what a thing to happen so soon after arriving....

There's an HU Ireland/Dublin community here:
Horizons Unlimited Motorcycle Travellers' Community - Contact a Community!

Could be worth a message.

And in my opinion, keep in touch with the police you've reported it to, could help to keep it up their priority list.

All the best.

I have hopefully hellpbed by posting this in a few other places. Unfortunately I doubt my XF650 Thumper would be of any use to you.

Post on here if you are looking for a bike, what your budget is and the type of bike and I'll have a look around all the normal online spots.

If you are coming up North, I'm in Fermanagh and happy to help you in any way I can.

Sorry to hear about that lad, I saw this posted on another irish bike forum. Those guys are always good for keeping an eye out. Hope you get it back soon

Sorry to hear it mate,
welcome to dublin,the shithole of Ireland

Hi Noah

Details and picture of your bike has been put up on many local sites and I understand that Dublin police have a "watch out for this bike" message regularly going out to all patrols.

Not necessary to say what we all think of the lowlife who do these things.

Your first post and this is your contribution?
If you spend a little more time on the site I think you'll discover that such unfounded smears are not usual or welcome.
BTW I'm not from Dublin but I've spend a couple of good weekends there recently - good people, interesting history and some lovely areas. Unfortunately vehicle theft is far too common in any European city.

Noah, Really sorry to hear of this crime. I hope it's only a temporary setback on your journey and some watchful eyes will spot the bike.
I suggest contacting both local and national radio stations. Phone-in programmes are very popular in Ireland.

Well I am from Dublin so I know what Im talking about,
you cant leave your bike anywhere or It'll end up being lashed around a field.
and then burned out,

Its completely out of control at the moment.
Recently lads being pulled off bikes at traffic lights and lads getting their heads kicked in and their bikes robbed.

If thats not a shit hole what is?

No apologies for my comment

i did try but donedeal servers wont let me access from here.

fingers crossed you get her back:thumbup1:

Noah,
Not sure if your monitoring this. I saw you were staying in Isaacs but when I rang this morning you had checked out.

Shity thing to have happen and despite what others say - its not a fair reflection of Dublin or Ireland.

I'm based just outside Dublin and can loan you a bike to see Ireland on while you're waiting to get yours back.

Just PM me on this site or email me on ian.x.cassidy at gmail.com.

I'll also do the donedeal.ie posting if you want to offer a few $$. I've heard this does work.
