Marty bump starting his bike after it spend the night in a river.

Called the guy who dropped his cell phone. but he wasn't willing to bring the bike back. had had aether gotten smart and denied everything or was just a lackey loading the bike into the truck. hard to say.

So we went to the RCMP to see if they could help. The officer we did the report with was cool {and a dirt biker} but he couldn't do anything other then "look into it". basically we would have had to seen it happen to get the guy busted. but if we had seen it we would have stopped, good bye 600 :crazy:.

Ruan sadly left the crew for a ride home in a car. so the 4 bikes remaining set off to the next hot springs.

Sunday camp. 2m from the pools.

top pics simon, looks like a top ride.
now to these pricks who nicked the bike.

i would be for calling all the numbers stored in the mobile phone in an 'attempt to find the owner' so that it can be returned, as not everyone in his phone memeory will be aware or in on the fact he has knocked off a bike.

if you can ascertain his address, follow him from his home to his work(if he works) then approach him. the threat of his employers finding out hes a thief may make him a little more cooperative.
then turn up at his house. make sure you have the guys in the photos with you.
do the police have his details from the phone?
please keep us informed on the progress here as the mobile phone is a great clue to work from. you should get the bike back.
good luck
