Lost toolkit

I lost my toolkit (in a crappy RHK fender bag that came loose) over easter out near the sandpatch wilderness area in Croajingolong National Park near Mallacoota.

It dropped off near the Rocky Ridge or Sand Patch tracks on the Friday. I doubled back to find it, and returned the following day to comb the tracks in my car but no luck. I'm guessing by the fresh 4x4 wheel tracks that were there on the Friday that someones picked it up.

I'm gutted because it had some good tools in it, including my Terra-x chain breaker.

It was two black RHK bags (one fender bag and one tail bag strapped together), and included the OEM Kato toolkit for the 690, a spoon tyre lever with a 22 mm ring on the other end, another tyre lever, patch kit, pump, etc. And the aforementioned chain breaker.

If anyone passes through the area and spots it, knows of anyone who found one over easter, or sees it up for sale on fleebay, etc let me know.

I've tried the cop shops in Mallacoota and Cann River, but they've not seen it.

And yes, my next toolkit will go in a bum bag.

I feel your pain - I had a bumbag fall off my bike that I'd spent 20 years perfecting - lots of cut + welded tools, including the ultimate shifter with metzler tyre lever on the end and a good half hours worth of angle grinding invested in lightening it

A good, relatively quick way to re start the collection is the kingchrome bumbag tool collection (but ditch the bum bag - it's crap). It'll never be as good as a 20 year old collection, but it beats buying the tools indipendantly!

Ive lost my tools off my bike three times - and three times lucky enough to retrieve them. Ive even lost my watch once and gone back 5 days later to find it as well. http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...=842554&page=4

There may be still hope mate.

Good luck

If you were a friendly 4-be driver (Iknow, I know...) and you found a bike's toolkit on a trail but weren't into bikes & wanted to return it, where would you go/what would you do?
You've tried the cop-shops, so maybe keep on eye on other dirt-bike forums.
Or ebay/gumtree.
Might be worth posting your note on a few 4x4 forums (fora?) too.
