Hey guys just a bit of a disappointing update as of tuesday 2nd december both my 2008 ktm 450 race quads pictured below were stolen from the aj towers in Darwin from the basement carpark.

Carpark was suposedly secure with a swip tag style rolladoor but its down fall was the fact that it only had pool fencing as its surrounding on the south side which was too easily unbolted and they removed a whole panel therefore pushing both quads away.

So far no leads but the stupid coppers (no offence to coppers that actually help) didnt even come and finger print my car which was parked less that 300mm away from them (just enough to open door and get in).

Nothing else was stolen from my area i have 5000 grand worth of tools sitting right behind the quads to the point were they had to manovoure around it to get them out plus all my race accseories and a full set of geniune aurion sportivo wheels as well obviously they only wanted one thing.

Both bikes were chained twice although only galvinised 12mm chain and 2 big padlocks, it didnt even make a difference just bolt cutted thru the lot.

Bikes retail at $15,000 each so right now some **** wit is riding around on $30,000 worth of race quads, and to top it of we are up for $3000 to cover the excess on insurance although better than 30 grand still has screwed my daughters, missus and my xmas good and proper.

My daughter (5) was extremely upset and was balling her eyes out worried on who was goin to ride with her when shes on her bike now mine are gone.

At the end of the day when and if i do find any of the ***** suckers that did thieve them ill promise them/u i will break there legs and maybe even there necks to the point were they cant even scratch there **** anymore. I promise u.

Thanks guys for reading my bitch but it ****s me to tears when thats my hard earned cash gone with a click of my fingers and the worst part was seeing the little one cry.

Mate that is really sad to hear. Some people have no idea about the consequences when they are doing this kind of $hit. It hurts to hear about how your hard earned has just been walk right out of a 'secured' area. Hurts even more to hear bout your little one being torn up bout it. F***heads :angry: :angry: :angry: And just before Christmas :o


I'm sure these c0ckheads will get what they deserve. At least no one was hurt.

sure is i mean if it was mid year yeah it would have still hurt but not as much as now as everyone knows all bills come at xmas.

we are goin to sydney for xmas to stay with the inlaws and now we have $3000 less in our spending money which only leaves us with about 2000 which doesnt go far between 3 people and the holiday costings.

it just not cricket

we did have abit of a lead on the weekend one of my mates reported seeing one of the bikes wheelie past his house so i was out there faster than the shirt went on my back but other than seeing some tyre tracks that couldve been ours (prob about 100 bikes with the same tyres) we didnt witness anything else.

we got about 5 residents saying it was a race style quad but u dont know until u see sometimes.

we searched all weekend thru the bush and the street still nothing in that area,couldve come from 30 odd kms away so back playing the waiting game again.

09 was gonna be a reasonably big season 4 me as i was entering the finke desert race and doin as many national meets as possible and if i could get the sponsors the aussie safari but not gonna have a season at all now theres no way i can afford 2 new bikes and entry and travel to each race.

oh well atleast i get to save money this year
