Depending upon the days I might volunteer to drive chase and for the right encouragement haul bikes back.

Is this a leave Friday ride. Laughlin is far, even in a car.

Laughlin

Hey guys think about from where you wont to start the ride to Laughlin
Victorville, Barstow or Baker I can lead if you likes

all bikes need gas range 120 mile minimum
the bikes burn more gas on the sand

the easy way is to drive to baker park the trucks over night for small bikes and ride the Mojave trail to Laughlin is about 111 mile with no mistakes to the avi casino
with good group and average speed we get there before dark
stay the night and ride back to the trucks same way on dirt is the fasts way

if you wont longer miles you can start from Barstow but i don't know where you can live the trucks
barstow to baker thru the power line or sand ( Afton canyon ) about 80 mile more. we need to start very early so we don't ride at night

Remember that Joel wants to go, getting there before dark isn't going to happen.

KOA Campground in Yermo has a large storage yard. They will let you park for the trip for a very small fee.

FakeName in San Diego GOT HIS BIKE BACK!!!!!!

I've been checking Craigslist every few hours since the bike was stolen, without great hope, but doing due diligence.

Remember the sprocket was broken and the bike has a desert tank? This morning, to once again prove criminals are stupid, the following ad appeared at 12:25 am:




Now, I may not have the highest state of tune a motor has seen, but I can put 2 and 2 together and make 3.

Not wanting to use my own number in case the suspect (hereafter referred to as S1 because i now know the lingo) was able to discover it through the registration papers on the bike, I call my buddy Ken, (at about 5am) an investigator of some official stature.

Ken texted S1 asking for a pic of the tank, and received a stock shot of a similar tank, "like this but white". Ken arranged for a later meeting with S1.

In the meantime, Ken made a few calls and secured the attention of the San Diego Police Department's auto theft guys. This is a great team of folks who set up a sting at the house of S1. Several big guys, very professional, with weapons.

We met at the police station close the S1's residence and I gave each of them a set of photographs and very specific information about the bike. They were already staking out the residence when I arrived at the station.

The officers were able to make contact with S1 and (based on details I had provided) asked for the special custom brackets I'd made for the bike. At that point the officers saw the bike, and the arrest was made.

The bike has the rear wheel, tank, seat, stabilizer, rear taillight assembly (with license plate!) and various other parts removed, but only the stabilizer was missing. The other parts were sitting in a box.

They let me go home, get my truck and pack it up to avoid impounds fees, etc.

Bike appears to be fine, and I appreciate all the outreach and help provided by the motocommunity and especially Trophyhunter (Ken) for setting up the process. Without him, I'd still be assembling the insurance claim.

I can't give more details than that due to legal process issues, but it was a LOT OF FUN, and I'm happy to have my errant bike home, and one dirtbag in the control of the police.

my family had our dirtbikes stolen once. the neighbor found my 92 ktm300 sitting in an alley. they didnt want it because it was missing a back fender. my dad got his 96ktm550 and my brotyhers yz80 back after making some calls to some "old" friends of his. in this case his friends had the guns. says right on the police report "R.O. "registered owner" recieved an anonomous phone call that he can pick up his bikes at averill park.

its good to hear others getting their bikes too
