Infuriating! Those types of bikes do end up up here on North Ave. Glad you posted pictures. Sorry you had to.

Mike....are there any physical marks or modifications (mirrors, shifters, welds, damage, etc) which may help identify the bike as yours in case they paint them or remove the stickers?

Stolen Bikes

Good chance somebody probably knew you had the bikes in that shed, so maybe make a list of who has seen the bikes. My neighbor has an exterminator come in from time to time, and next thing he knew, the motor to his vintage Harley Davidson that was in a box on the garage floor went missing. I don't think some cockaroach walked off with it, but I would bet cockaroach doing the exterminating had something to do with it. I keep my motorcycle shed locked, behind a locked fence gate that encloses the back yard and use an inexpensive but load and effective pressure sensing sound alarm. When a door or window is opened, it blares loud enough I can hear it in the bedroom where I keep my 12 gauge shot gun by my bedside.

Thanks for the concern and the lookout everyone, I really appreciate it!

I don't live in a bad area, but I think it's closer to bad than good. The shed sits far enough back that nobody would know what's in it other than the neighborhood kids. My guess is that someone mentioned the fact that I had dirtbikes to the wrong person and they decided that I didn't deserve them. There's no way that this happened while I was home - I definitely would've heard them banging on the deadlock.

Good call on the distinguishing marks, Bruce.

The CRF is pretty much stock other than the skidplate, bar risers, and handguards. There's a yellow overflow tube on the fuel cap.

The Beta...well it's an old Beta I doubt there are more than five of those in MD, DC and VA. The front wheel is laced offset by at least half an inch, the plastics are aftermarket, there's JB weld on the left cover on the engine, and the frame is from a TR32 if I remember correctly.

The DR has plenty of distinguishing characteristics. The right side plastic cover over the exhaust has been shortened (to remove the part I burned when I put luggage on it...) and it has a muffler from a GSXR 1000. There's a tear in the right side of the seat cover (blue and black) from the Shane Watts class. The end of the rear axle on the right side is rashed from screwing around on the street in the rain - same with the right hand guard. There's a 12V outlet I wired up to the battery and velcro'd to the back of the flyscreen, as well as a mount for a Garmin 60CSx on the left side of the bars next to a small bar mounted mirror. It has a Clarke tank and hardened yellow fuel line attached to an FCR carb. There's orange paracord wrapped around the grab handles on the rear and a faded Moose tailbag (looks purple now...kinda regal if you ask me). That's all I can come up with off the top of my head.

Thanks again guys.

Not much to add that hasn't already been covered; sorry to hear of your troubles. Hope this situation resolves itself in some positive manner for you.

Sorry to hear about this Mike. I'll watch Craigslist up this way, and check out any bikes that look suspect. It's a shame we can't just go ahead and hang them like they used to do horse thieves.

Thanks guys. I took off early yesterday to replace the doors on the shed. Now I just need to install another deadbolt and electrify the handle

Is it possible that this ad for a 2013 DR650 part out in Ft Washington (listed 2 days after your bikes were stolen) is somehow related? Probably not, but you never know.

Mike is there any chance a neighbor coulda seen a truck loaded with bikes or someone pushing bikes down the street to a waiting vehicle and not realized what was up? Maybe print up a few flyers and leave them in your neighbor's mailboxes or tacked to a light pole?
