So you ride without Insurance there? Theft cover?

Go to all near by local bike repair shops and retail bike shops ... especially the low life ones .... offer big reward for return of bike.
Put up flyers with pics offering Reward.

Why would someone risk prison for an old Boiler TA anyway? Guess that Junkie program isn't working so good these days? Must be some desperate MFer's out there now to steal that. Maybe an inside job? Like someone you know?

Put the word out around the shooting galleries, clinics, and such.
CASH TALKS.

!Suerte!

Excellent news....

Please, give it a THOROUGH examination before you ride it. You never know what the little scrotes have done to it.

Check/change the fluids,
Check all nuts and bolts are tight
Check brakes/brake lines, fluid levels
Check tyres for splits , tears
Check chain for damage.

My XR650R was stolen and recovered. They had tried to remove the chain and front sprocket and one of the pins was hanging out the chain. There was also a tear in the tyre.

The police said it was fine and safe to ride. Who qualified them to say that is beyond me !!

ooooh was too busy with other things sorting out!

I was in Ripley Crusty, sad I missed you, just see the message now....

Anyway the bike is fine, I had a new ignition lock and battery put in and found myself a new mirror. Had a wonderful time riding to Ripley, we took a boat to Newcastle week and rode 4 days throught Yorkshire to come and go.

Which made me also realise what a wonderful country England is......
