Are people stupid. How many crf450s do you think are out there? Not many. I think it is funny how people steal and think they are going to get a way with it. They have the vin to so that helps a great deal. I hope they get caught and get punished at the full extent of the law. I hope they get it back.
I'm sorry, maybe that was not supposed to be funny. I just can not stop laughing. I thought I was stupid for adjusting the comp dampening on my KTM backwards for the last month...these guys were beyond stupid. I'm sure it will be found in an alley somewhere when they find out what they stole.
The first year I went down for the Baja 1000 Nelson & Nelson' s transporter was stolen - thiefs didn't realize that there was a several hundred thousand dollar Class 8 race truck in it.... Found the transporter outside Ensenada - tool boxes and such were gone but the race truck was untouced. Doh!!!!
Thats a big truck to try to steal and get away with!
In this case: I think it was a nervous 426 rider trying to figure out how Honda makes it start so well during a race, they will return it minus the auto compression release and hot start back down on the carb instead of on the handlebars!:eek:
