We are staying in Bushnell Fl for the winter at Sumter Oaks RV Park. This AM when I got out of the RV I noticed my bike gone. I guess some one came in the park sometime after 9:30PM and before 7AM and rolled it off.

If you have seen my bike you know it is different than any other, like most KLR riders I set it up for me. If you check out my web site you can see some of the mods I have done and some are quite unique.

If you happen to see it or some of the mods, like the hard bags, and dash please let me know so we can catch a bike thief.

I will be looking on E-Bay for some of the parts, I'm sure it will be parted out with out them having the title.

The insurance company will pay the "value" of the bike, (we all know it won't be the worth of the bike) so I will be looking for a new/newer one really soon. Thinking about going with a XT 250, because I won't be doing any long distance riding anymore.

OH WELL S**T HAPPENS.

Wow, that blows. Someone moved my bike yesterday and I was NOT happy. Sorry, man. I've had a bike stolen, too...many years ago. Bad deal.

Yes it is a bummer, but "maybe" the insurance company will write me a big check to ease the pain.

Thanks for posting the pic Mark, hope you all are doing well out there on the left coast.

Just a note, not sure if it will help unless you alerted the insurance company about all the extras.

My dad had 3 custom built computers get blown when a powerline went down. When the adjuster came out he told my dad to add labor in to the price of each computer since he'll be the one rebuilding them. $400 each for two of them and $600 for the other one.

So... when you figure in all those accessories and mods that you had on the bike, be sure to add labor costs for redoing them all.

Crime is getting out of control. In the past week there have been so many shootings, bank robberies, and other forms of theft around Columbus I'm starting to think about a concealed carry permit. At 6'4" and two black belts I never thought I'd feel the necessity to carry a firearm for safety in town. But the economy is really making crime an inviting solution to those with low morals.

Sorry about the bike Joe, but it can be replaced, you two can't!

I got the check from the insurance company today, $26??.?? for the bike and $1000 for the extras. Less my deductible I wound up with $32??. So I guess I just lost the extras I had put on the bike.

I would really like to find the thief.:character00110::character00110::character00110::76a::31:

Would you mind sharing who your insurance company is?
I have heard some good things about dairyland and so I switched from
Allstate after 32 years and now have 2 bikes insured for less than allstate charged for 1....dairyland covers accessories and even riding gear and helmets in accident situations. I'm not sure how they would be in theft cases...

Progressive,
they also cover the gear, and if mine had been taken with the bike they would have paid me for them.
A few years ago my brother wrecked a bike of mine and progressive paid off really quick. The main problem with them is their limits, you have to check to ensure the limits are adequate because when you call for a quote they will often give you a price for the state minimum limits which are not enough in most accidents.

I had my BMW R100s stolen in '78. It was quite a shock to go out in the morning and find the bike missing...I drank almost a whole bottle of Jack D by myself to divert the pain...I was 1 day away from getting a check for a new bike when a friend saw the bike with a bunch of punks standing around it. He charged the group with his van, scattered 'em and then managed to get the bike into the side door of his van and called the police, they then wanted to arrest him (he was a "colorful" character) for having a stolen bike. I had to go to the scene and verify he was ok and it was my bike...still have the bike and ride on sunny sundays when not on the KLR (when wife wants to ride)

Crap, sorry to read about this Daddyjoe. I know the sickening feeling down in the pit of your stomach. I hope you are able to pick up another one and get her fixed up the way you want it.
