You boys............... too funny man

I dont have all day to stay around. Sometimes I throw something in and then leave the office.

Well. Heres the deal. Hilde will never go lucky with lucky. She has some taste.

 :D  :D  :D

Secondly, the guy who sold it to me - I phone him, ask for the 2nd key. After he says I owe him R100, and is about to put the phone down, I ask him - hey, what do you suggest I do?

He suddenly comes to life and tells me to call him in one hour.

I dont. He phones me back sooner than that, with the idea that the keys went with some other KTM he sold to some guy.

I phone guy and he says: let me try tonight, call me later.

I do.

He does.

It doesnt fit his bike.

I go next day, pick up key

Go to where bike is standing and VOILA

It fits and it starts!  Whoooohooo!

Then, I go out for dinner with Hilde and her family to Moyo at Spier last nite, and I get a phone call.

Hello is that George

Yes

I have your keys

HUH

The bus driver found them

COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Come get em tomorrow.

Thanks!!!!!!!

I go

I get the story

The bus driver had to do an emergency brake because some car pulled in the wrong lane in the parking lot. Something fell out somewhere.

Turned out to be my keys. Un freken real.

Something clearly had an eye on taking my bike.

Yes Adventurer, KTM's are desirable.

I couldnt believe it.

The rubbers I had put on the keys to prevent scratching when in the ignition were all off, they had been played with a bit. Found 3 days later.

Howsat for a story.

BBBS, you fell for the GSXR story?

Bakgat!!! Its great to hear there is some good in the world, and it's not just filled with bad luck. You got yourself some good karma going on there. I am really pleased for you that it worked out OK in the end, and your bike was not affirmatively appropriated!  :D  :thumbup:

Glad to hear your Katoom is safe and sound 8)  8)
Don't know if I could endure another loss of a scoot of yours.. :D  :D  :D
Just kidding, I know it is not nice to lose a scoot, no matter what type it is... :D  :D
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

I must admit that I am well pleased. I am a bit concerned that someone was going to "appropriate" my bike. Damit man!

Thing is that 3 days is enough for them to go and get a key cut similar to my original and when they see it, they can "legitimately" put the key in, ride off.

It does concern me quite a bit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If this one gets stolen, I might just buy a scooter.

Alternative shopping is a big concern :shock:

Insurance is not always an option, can be expensive :(

How does one protect your bike from being stolen?

Anyone know anything about the bike anti-theft brackets :?:  Is there such a thing :?:
It is never too late or too early to be whoever you want to be.
