So here's the story. It got jacked from our shop in salt lake city around noon on thursday. I called the police and did the report thing. I told some friends and they all started posting it on facebook and their friends also posted and before you knew it it had people texting an PMing me that they had seen it. my saviour michelle delivers parts and she sent a pic and location of my bike. I drove out there and sure as shit it was my bike. Now for the hard part....waiting for the cops. Damn it took them 2 hours, but they eventual came and I got to take possesion of the bike. They took my garmin gps and weather antenna, the tool kit, and some spare parts in the bags. He must have lowsidied it as there was scrapes on the crash bars and bags, I snickered because there was a trace of blood on the right peg..:-)haha

All in tact - any damage?

Oops - I see the answer...

Let's hope he lost some hide.

Fellow Utards,
I will be driving my SUV out to steamboat for the KTM rally on Thursday AM and will have a little extra room if anyone wants to throw their saddle bags, tent, cooler, whatever in ahead of time instead of carrying on their bike. I'm planning to carry my 530 but I could also tow a trailer if anyone wants to haul their bike out together - you supply the trailer though as I no have any seρor.

I was planning to bring some rebuilt final drives with me to make a few bucks, but then I realized that's the wrong rally!

Limited time offer.....

Headed out to the KTM Rally in Steamboat. Gotta beat the Christmas rush.



Plan is for a dirt route starting on the north slope to the gorge followed by more dirt along the UT / WY / CO border to the springs. The big questions is with the weather gods.

Here is the Spot for entertainment...
