Dang man, I'm sorry to hear that Paul. I'll spread the word on my side for you. I got some buddies that work for Gwinnett County PD and will fill them in also.

Paul,
sorry to hear about the shop break in. Please post up a list of bikes missing. I am home riding the couch next 4 weeks and will keep looking on line as much as I can.
I say a public lynching is in order...for these ::loser:: s

Gwinnett County PD is now aware and they are putting it out in our area to keep any eye on any suspicious activity. They would like to get a hold of any VIN's that would be available so they can have them accessible if needed. They don't call it Gwinnettexico for nothing.

So sorry to hear that. We were off the computer all weekend and just now got to read this. Hoping and praying those folks get caught and justice gets served.

When you are able to post the info on the bikes I will pass it along as well.

With the Baja 1000 a couple weeks away, it probably makes hauling that many new bikes across the border a lot easier. And since they have have all the gear to go with the bikes, it even looks legit. For those of you going down south to watch the race, keep a look out!!

Ryan... good thinking. Might be worth seeing if there is a way to get the VINs to the border agents. They stop a lot of trucks with bikes. Maybe the VIN list could be sent down there.

I am heading to Ensenada for the race, but I can tell you... I am not going to be pulling out a list in Mexico and checking bikes. That's a good way to end up in a face down in a alley. ::eek:: Sorry Paul.

Send me the list and I will see if I can get it to SCORE. They have a great relationship with the Mexican authorities on the border.

Very sorry to hear about this. I grew up that area and had a bike stolen from a church parking lot in the early 80s. I live in the middle TN area now, and have a son that works for dealership in Clarksville TN , so we are spreading the word to watch out for these bikes.

I mite not like KTM's or HP but that is horrible and I do wish the best. I live not even 3 miles from there that's crazy I have never heard of something like this.


Yeah, we're close too. KTM's aren't bad, just different- just like every other bike on the planet, they have their quirks and their good points! I've never heard of anyone who didn't have a great time at HP. What's not to like?

I agree they're probably headed off shore. The cost of a new KTM in Costa Rica, Brazil, etc., is out of sight. Double or triple if I remember right. Gotta love those import tarrifs.

Is it possible to put a bike style Lojak unit in one of the airboxes? Chances are the thieves won't be checking every bike looking for it, and they'll all be going to the same place. If enough dealers practice this maybe the thieves will head elsewhere.

Problem is, might not transmit inside a trailer or shipping container . . . .

Sorry about your invasion, Paul. ::cry::

Best,
- c bob

One of our vendors sells data loggers that provide location, temperature and shock readings via cell tower and sat pings even when stuffed inside a box at the bottom of a pallet inside a trailer/container. They cost a couple of hundred bucks for the unit and then there is a usage fee depending on what level of monitoring you want. (after the fact records or up to the minute constant monitoring as many of our pharma customers require. Depending on the ping rate the batteries last 1-4 months between charges.

Paul,
I am really sorry to hear this rotten news. I know the chances of the perps getting caught is slim.

I just hope you are able to recover from this loss and keep everything going.

I still have my KTM and, although I don't ride as much as I used to, I'll be sure to send all my KTM parts business to you. I know it's not much........

Just keep in mind, it was just stuff and not human life that was lost. Best of luck.

Have you checked with neighboring shops to see if any of them had surveillance that might have caught it? Had to be a pretty dang big truck to haul that many bikes.

I was about to say you could check to see if U-Haul could be any help but that's just stupid. I bet there're hundreds of trucks like it out every night.

Hope you catch the b****rds!

Jeff

PS: I also hope KTM has the ability to red-flag bikes like that so servicing dealers can't work on em.

+1 on the cellular option- works well for locations that do not have underground utilities. One of my shops got hit for 70k in tools a few years ago. At least inventory dollars can be easily replaced by your ins policy as the stuff is new- mechanics are terrible at keeping receipts for tools and they get depreciated.
Although it may be a while before they are back you can bet you are on the radar.

What!! Thats awful! I saw the title and told Daniel before reading the posts. Dan is my 13 yr old...He says. Mom, Paul needs some GPS tracking chips or something on the bikes and then remove them when bike is purchased. I say to him....GREAT idea! Then I read cbobs lojack thing. Do they actually make little stick on microchips that can be tracked? Small like our mini transponders at the race. Sorry to hear about your bikes, Paul. Sure was alot of bikes to steal without being obvious. ::rant::
