Now comes the self humiliation for the sake of the safety of others bikes. As you all know, when you get something new (especially bikes), you want to show all your friends what ya got SO... a couple of days after getting my WR450 I ran into a few friends, and as luck would have it, the WR was in the truck. Of course all of them wanted to hear it run and I was in a playfull mood so I treated them to a bed mounted smokeshow (1st thru 5th gear burnout). I was thouroughly impressed with myself until I looked at the burnt rubber in the bed and noticed something else... the forgotten lock cables (or what was left) were both destroyed! The one that went through the back tire and frame had pulled the loop apart and wrapped the cable around the hub while also breaking a spoke nipple and bending two other spokes slightly. It also whacked the caliper a few times and jammed some of the plastic sheathing under the rear brake pads. The cable that connected the bike to the bed didn't do as much and only snapped in the middle.
I'd never have thought that bike could do that kinda damage to those cables and it never choked a bit while it was chewing them up (gotta love that WR power!). Moral of the story? I'm switching to chains, 'cause at least then I'll know for sure when I forgot to unlock the bike again

i mounted a tool kit on the rear fender( from a kdx220) and the rad gaurds should make it stand out i hope . I was insured, but the xr100 was not. Garage has an alarm now. Next bike will be cabled to concrete floor.
Its probabley been taken out of province where you don't need a reg'd plate to ride.

JP and SugarBear have treed one would be burglar and a meter reader. I guess they couldn't read or didn't believe the sign."BEWARE OF DOG".
The cops took the guy to jail for trespassing. He said he accidentally wandered into our backyard. I found it strange that the gate was locked and he was in a tree by the window to the breakfast room. I think they were asleep in the garage 'cause if they were awake he wouldn't of made it into the backyard. The cops said since he didn't break in, he wasn't a burglar but rather a trespasser. We had to lock the gate 'cause the meter reader who got treed tried to sue us when he got bit and it was our fault for not locking it! After that, they peeked over the fence from my neighbors yard with a spotter scope to read it.
BTW, my garage is never locked, it's the dog's house!!!
