Put Up Your Dukes

Today we had a nice ride through the desert near the Salton Sea.

After the ride needed diesel for the truck. Stopped at a Chevron. Got some diesel and parked by the door.

Went to a restaurant 2 doors down from the Chevron in the same shopping complex. I stood up after eating and saw some asswipe stealing my motorcycle!

I ran out and confronted the thief who then attacked me. An all out brawl began. We went all over the parking lot throwing blows. At one point I had him on the ground and thought I might be able to subdue him till the cops arrived but he got away.

Other than some busted knuckles, a little other bloodshed, a few lumps on my head, a sore neck and a jaw that will only open part way everything is pretty OK.

I must have won the fight because I still have my bike.

You didn't stab him inthe neck with a fork or steak knife?


First thing I thought of since you were in a restaurant.

Fortunately the bike had gotten crossed up in the hitch rack while the thief was trying to get the bike off.

This was directly in front of 2 security cameras and numerous witnesses. With luck he will be apprehended soon.

Its time for a real strong drink.

Glad you saved the bike Wally.. Sorry you got hurt.

Tweaker thieves should be shot!


Keep us posted on the police work... My experience is the cops won't care about theft, but the fact he attacked you may give them a reason to put some effort into the case.
