Stolen: 2010 KTM 990 Adventure from Scotts Valley, CA

Just got back from camping with the family and found my bike has been stolen. Police report has been made but I figured I'd post here just in case anybody sees one come up for sale in their area. Approximately 6000 miles. CA License # 776879Y.

This photo was taken two weeks ago at Ebbetts pass.

Doubt it will end up near me, but I'll be looking for it.

That really sucks, I'll keep an eye out. Any unique features? Look around nearby, like Santa Cruz. Half the time its just a joyride that doesn't get very far. Also post on BARF?

Thanks everybody. Unfortunately it's going to be difficult to get started without the chipped key so it's not likely to be spotted riding around. I went looking around the area to see if it had just be moved but unfortunately it was missing for 4 days before I found out about it.

Major bummer but after I'm done fuming it will be fun to look for something new.

That sucks! Nice looking ride, what a shame that people could do such a thing. How can they even look at their self in the mirror?
I absolutely despise thievery, friggen ass-wipe mouth breathers.

Make sure to check Craigs site daily, try using a national search. http://www.searchalljunk.com/
They often part them out and try to slide under the radar with non-typical descriptions of the part.

Good luck, I will keep my eyes open here locally for you!

Here is a photo for ya;

I have heard of Harleys stolen from behind parked cars in garages. If they want it bad enough, they can take it.

Damn thieves...

there are several postings for parting out a "2008" 990. but, parts he is selling don't appear to have come from the mentioned stolen bike; all stock stuff.

Hope you get at least some of a lead on it. Want a 950 myself; couldn't imagine losing one.

Bummer Reese. That bike has turned my head a few times. I live in Scotts Valley and its a small town so I probably have seen you around. From now on Im gonna shut my garage door when Im not home. With the rampant drug trade in Santa Cruz and surrounding areas its not surprising.
Safe from violence maybe but not thieves. I have an extra DL 650 and want to offer you a ride sometime. PM me if your up for it. At least get out for some air and sky. I cant ride two bikes at once anyway. Im gonna be looking for you. You might try posting on South Bay Riders. Bummer man. F'n bummer.

If you haven't already, give it a shot... lots of folks in your area that can keep an eye out.

Really sorry to hear about the theft... it just plain sucks.
