STOLEN BIKE - San Diego - DR650

STOLEN BIKE - NEED HELP - DR650

my close friend and riding buddy had his '99 DR650 stolen within the last 24 hours from the carport at his house in the North Park community of San Diego, CA!

He JUST installed new plastics ($300) on it this week and hasn't had one dirt ride since he put $400 into his suspension earlier this month! His license plate got snapped off and he literally got his new one today - he went to install his new plate and the bike was GONE!

Here is a picture of the bike taken 3 days ago.



UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE BIKE

1999 DR650
No License Plate
Brand New Black Plastics
Black Supermoto Fender
Yellow Fork Guards
Black IMS 5 Gallon Tank
Black Acerbis Bark Busters
Black Moose Racing Shift Perch/Lever
Tall ATV Bars
"Deathwing" front tire
Shinko 705 rear
16t front sprocket
Blue/Black stock seat
Case Guards
Skidplate
China Oversized Pegs
Aftermarket Oil Filter Cover
No Rear Tail lights



Please help us scour Craigslist for a possible sale of the bike or parts. With the high traffic of "alley pickers" along his street I fear the bike is in the back of a van headed across the US/Mexico border.

He was supposed to ride with me this weekend and we had plans to go to Mojave in the next few weeks. I was there when he bought this bike, I was there for his first crash and I got him to go with me on his first big ride to Death Valley last year. Hell, he even let my dumb ass ride his bike all the way to Denver so I could celebrate his best friend's bachelor party with him! This sucks.

This is his FIRST and ONLY motorcycle. Please reply or PM me with any information. He is a good guy and active in the local San Diego dual sport community. He is currently on the phone with the police.

Any & ALL help is greatly appreciated! Thank You.

Good Luck

In finding the bike and the POS that stole it. I hope whoever took the bike gets what is coming to him/her.

I appreciate the thoughts and support! If we can ever find it, I don't assume the "reacquisition transaction" will be all that pretty!

Will keep an eye out in this part of the land for you. If seen will be sure to inflict some punishment for you.

THANK YOU GUYS!


I (and my buddy who's bike it is) are really grateful for the support. I spoke with local law enforcement in San Diego and they informed me that they at one point had (might still have) a task force dedicated to stolen bikes (typically sport bikes). They're often loaded into a van and taken to Tijuana.

I have some hope though, I know two guys who have recovered their bikes from theft when the foolish thieves started parting out unique and identifiable parts from the bikes.

Thanks for the support! It feels good to know we have many eyes looking!

Damn, that's over in the alley behind 30th isn't it?

I live like 5 blocks away...scary $hit. Glad my bikes are garaged.

I'll keep my eyes peeled!

He's off Dwight just east of 30th. Yes definitely scary and real. I personally live in PB along an alley as well. Thankfully I have a garage but I don't leave it open any longer than I have to. Its patrolled every single day. I fear his was plucked by alley pickers and not your typical North Park meth-head thief.

Btw the guy across from his house (who has a garage) rides almost everyday on a cafe airhead. The bike looks pretty sick.

If he gets the DR back or when he has to buy a new bike, come join us on some SD backcountry rides. There are a lot of big bike friendly loops. I rode Otay this morning.
