    KTM 1050 Adventure and Kawasaki KX450F Stolen

    Hi,
    Both motorcycles removed from my property on Tuesday morning early hours 15th May. Loaded into what looked like a Hyundai H1 or similar van.

    2015 KTM 1050 Adventure. Standard with high dark screen and Givi top box. 18200km ODO. Heated grips. Unfortunately no real distinguishing marks. Top Box had Berik Adv Jacket and Arai RX7-GP helmet (white and orange with big fingerprint graphic on the sides)

    2008 KX450F. Custom sticker kit as per photo. Akro exhaust. Back rim is slightly buckled.

    Any leads or findings please reach out.....Thanks.

    This is a kak one. And this sort of thing is getting more and more prevalent.

    I'd suggest that you also post on the Wild Dog forum - if you are not a member I'll post for you. And get the VIN and Reg numbers on here and out there.
    Beer, I drink it when I`m happy or when I`m sad. I drink it when I`m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. Trifle with it if I`m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it - unless I`m thirsty.

    In a very well locked carport. They climbed up on the roof and simply cut the galvanized roof with tin snips. Climbed in and broke the gates open from the inside.

    Some feedback from WD....

    i dont want to raise too much concern, as i cant back it up.

    a guy offered me a KX450F 2008 model to swop for the TW200.
    this was Yesterday morning.
    on wattsupp. he did say he is from Roodepoort.

    i responded by saying the TW is for sale, not swop.
    and deleted the msg unfortunately.

    anyone know if a msg like that can be retrieved?

    i never received photos etc. and was a 3 line conversation.

    Love to catch these okes and make sure they never steal again...(axe/chainsaw to remove fingers)
    Marc Marquez is the best.
