Well we want out to Gordon's Well this past weekend, and were having a great time. It was still hot but fun none the less. Everything was going great until Sunday morning. I was sitting there having my coffee, talking with the group, when I had to go into the trailer go get something. That's when I realized, some POS stole my CR500! I can't believe it. The worst part is, I just spent $ 800 going through the motor and installing a new clutch basket ect..ect.. All I can say is, I hope the rat bastard kills himself on it.

thats a total bust. I'm sorry to hear that.

Post up on RaceDesert, District37 and other sites. Watch Craigslist as well.

Best of luck.

Was it locked up?

That sucks! I lock my stuff up but still think about it while I am sleeping. One night in Glamis it sounded like somebody was dragging something away and I woke up in a frenzy to get out of bed to check it out. I ate shit getting out of bed. :p

Ended up being some guys on Gecko with a flat or something at like 3am.

Lots of people are leaving their RV's at the dunes when they go home.
Was that your situation?

The Mezzican border is just a few hundred yards away from the Gordons entrance.

Easy pickins. The border patrol only stops Northbound ATV traffic.

No question that some El Golfo and San Felipe ATV rental places get their rolling stock from Gordons and Buttercup thieves.

The VIN's are welded over or simply ground off, and their quad supply is vast,, endless and a wildly varried selection.
Not like Pismo or Ft Lauderdale or San Diego based ATV rental biz's where the shop operator buys a common model fleet deal from the MFG's.

Just my 2 cents, I could be wrong, hope you recover it.

Hello Darrell:

Sorry to hear about the theft. I hope you reported the theft to the DMV and the police if the theives were local it will either be parted out or dumped somewhere. If the theives are from Mexico kiss it good bye as stated by other members it will probably be at a rental shop.

This gets me thinking some locals like the CR500 for engine swaps in their quads since the quad is usually registered the motor swap will not trigger a vin check for green sticker purposes. They must have really wanted that specific bike ie...1994 CR500---I mean why risk your life for that bike ie...14 year old bike. This is not a slam just thinking about the why take such a risk---then again the criminal mind is not always the sharpest.

The above makes more sense when you see nice newer KTM 450s running around which are worth considerably more in both parts and resale in whatever country/hands it ends up.

Once again, sorry to hear about the theft see you at HSV.

Take Care,

KAP

That sucks, I hate thieves:|err
.
I usually park and lock up the bikes right where I'm sleeping and make it difficult to do anything without making any noise.
My kids were always pissed in the morning 'cuz I'd tangle stuff so even they couldn't get them loose to go ride.:p

This is the main reason I got insurance on my Rhino. I couldn't afford to replace it if it was stolen so now I don't really worry about it too much.

We always used a heavy chain to lock the bikes together. We would snake it through the frames and rims. That way they would have to make quite a bit of noise to get the bikes loose.
