Yeah sorry to hear that, will keep a look out.
Might be worth having a chat with the local taxi companies/drivers and offering some reward if recovered as they get pretty much everywhere and see a lot of stuff at odd times of the day etc.

Sorry to hear that your bikes are gone, I'll keep an eye for them in Ireland, I've been off the scene all summer, but after a back opp, I'm back on the road again, have I missed anything

Hi william.

where do you live. did you get the engine nr on the mt? some good tips on the forum about how to make it know (notify local taxi co's, offer reward, etc). but it sounds like they knew what they were out after. i hope you get them back!
