*STOLEN* trans Africa Bike, eyes out please!

Last week my beloved motorbike, Suzi, was stolen from outside my flat in South East London. Last year I rode her solo from London to Capetown so you can imagine how gutted and heartbroken I am. I'd be incredibly grateful if as many people as possible would be prepared to share this profile to give me the best chance of being reunited with my trusty steed once again. She is very distinctive, most particularly with her 17l see through plastic Safari fuel tank, so please keep an eye out for her. If you do spot her, please ring me on 07850 951 614 - thanks so much

Reg: RO56 ENF
Make: Suzuki
Model: DRZ 400 SK6
VIN/Chassis/Frame No: JS1BC0111100103510
Engine No: K419-159743
Colour: Blue

Unique, distinguishing features:
- very unusual large, 17 litre slightly yellowed see-through plastic Safari fuel tank
- blue Acerbis hand guards
- Fatbars (chunky handlebars) with foam handgrips tightened on with metal wire, a Garmin sat nav bracket in the middle of the bars. The bars have been raised by 2 copper looking bar raisers.
- non-standard red "on/off" switch fitted to the handlebars
- ignition key is on the left hand side of the bike underneath the handlebars next to the top of the left fork (non-standard)
- kick start (non-standard)
- if you duck down in the middle of the bike, you'll see two bits of matt black metal strips (suspension linkages) with the words "Lust Racing" in white and red lettering
- if you look at the right hand side of the engine, there is a round metal discs on the engine casing with the word "B&B" engraved onto it.
- white metal ammo case with faded union jack sticker fitted above the exhaust
- metal plate glued to the exhaust (its a heat shield for soft luggage) with the words "Giant Loop" on it
- rear luggage rack
- metal bash plate
- mismatching wing mirors (left is black round mirror, right is rusty chrome rectangular one)
- large black windscreen (non-standard)

I'm sorry someone felt the need to steal your bike. To me, that ranks s one of the lowest things someone could do. I truly do hope you get it back soon.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
