While Tickertyboo was riding his heart out for TLD, and raising in the region of two grand in the process, some thieving scum broke into his place.

Stolen were:

1 Kwaka Kx 125

1 kwaka Kx 250

Tools that have taken the best part of 20 years to accumulate

Items from the music room including

guitar

amps

mikes

1 Orange downhill bike

And they wrecked his car in the process of trying to nick that too.

They are gutted, especially his sons who had their precious bikes stolen.

It's a mark of the man that his email ends:
But any way a huge thanks to every one for an amazing trip, a big thanks to oli,mat,phill,ross for giving me a seriously big grin factor.
And stumpy for an unplanned but awesome route.
What can you say.

I'm attaching some pics below: Gary if you want to add any more detail , and the area; people can keep their eyes and ears peeled.

I have a saw for when you catch them.
Words I am thinking cannot be published on a site such as this.

That's got to be something the local press would publish - H4H fundraiser robbed by scumbags. Worth a try maybe?

Yes, definitely worth getting in touch with them. Awful to hear of this. :(:(:(

You know, this sort of thing makes me SO ANGRY.:mad::mad::mad::mad:

Ok, so the little scumbags didn't know they were preying on a guy who put his heart and soul into a great cause. And I'm sure all the rest of the crew involved on the ride would agree that no one deserves this sort of s**t to come back to after such an amazing acheivement.

I agree with all of the above -- think the local press should be involved or maybe higher coverage.

Can anybody on here help this along ??

Bit too far away for me to get involved, but I tell you, I think this deserves press coverage to the max.

Might make someone more liable to grass them up :(

i can only imagine how you feel.
personally i'd string up all thieving scumbags by their b*****xs.

certainly try the local press also consider your local radio and even local tv.
putting up posters locally may also be worth a try.

good luck

I think ar*eholes like the w*nkers who stole this stuff should have their faces tattood bright blue.

Why do these people think that if they can't afford it, they can just steal it.
Should try getting a job the lazy caaants

What a bunch of TOSSERS, must of been someone who knew they were going away and the place would be empty. Unfortunatly the web is a lovely place you write a thread saying when you going away on here and any scum, members not included unless you were the burglars can read what your doing and when.
My mates garage was ram raided about 4 years ago it's an aprillia franchise they took 2 450cc (ithink )special edition bikes only 200 in the country, they thought it was done by another dealer who kept phoning wanting to buy them. The bikes were then found about 2 months later by the police the bikes were wearing KTM graphics kits to disquise they were aprillia bikes.
MAybe worth going to weston next year for the beach races alot of stolen offroaders end up there to be raced but th epolice did get alot back this year

good news is i have now collected 750.00 of the 1785.00 promised for the TLD run,puts things in perspective when you think how our chaps and lasses are going to benifit from all of our efforts.

hay ho always a silver lining. :thumbup:

Nice one...

It certainly does put it into perspective, just think how crap your life is now (if you are down) then imagine a tour of Afghanistan and possibly coming back missing a leg or arm or both... or not coming back. Definately makes you think that whatever problem you are having, it pales into insignificance.

I'm sorry about this.

However, I'm a firm believer in "what goes around, comes around" with a little luck they've been run over by something rather large, oh and slow.
