So I bought a Husqvarna WRE 2007 last Monday, for Greenlaning.

Took it out Sunday for a lovley muddy ride :) then went straight to my mates to chill out

at 11:45pm I started to warm up the engine (2 stroke) too go home.

at 12:00 I was ready to go home...closed my mates front door...wheel the bike backwards and then bam.

3 guys (rude boys) stood next to my bike smacking (in the helmet mostly) and trying to kick me off my bike.

One guy wraps his arm around my neck and drags me off the bike.

When another gets on the bike and stalls it....I punched him in the face and he drops too the floor with my bike. (not a knock out as my wind mills arn't that great)

So I take the chance to run to my mates door and bank on the door loudly

I see the guys pick up my bike and try wheel it away. (from the alley way i'm in onto the main road about 5/6 meters)

I run towards them and they drop the bike on the floor and run off.

As I pick up the bike the guys run again towards me shouting "**** him up"

I was lucky that at this point 7 of my mates stormed out the flat and gave chase, but they all got away.

Only damage to the bike was that the throttle didn't spring back and my front brake res was leaking which I both fixed this morning.

I also realised later that day that the Autolube pump is not working....so not mixing the 2 stroke oil with the fuel.

I suffer no damage =]

At least I got my bike back and they can't have any fun ranting it around and then burning it :).

I reported it this morning and they still yet to turn up at my house (told them I finnsh work at 5).

I went to the Petrol Station opposite to ask if I could see the CCTV, which they showed me.

You can see how the 3 guys watching me for around 2/3 minutes before they cross the road (camera can't see into lane).

I wouldn't want anyone to ever experiance this. Was horrible and I was pretty sure my bike was a goner, I am just glad they were not stronger or carried weapons around with them.

Keep your bikes safe guys :(

wow that doesn't sound like fun, good to hear your all right and the bikes safe though. I bet they didn't think you'd stand up to them 3 on 1 :)

What area of Bristol was it in?

It was on Gloucster Road near the Texaco Garage if you know where that is.

I didn't want to let the bike go just after 6 days of owning it :(. Didn't think i'd stand up for it personaly.

But the Aderneline rush and Helmet/Crash gear made me into the windmill hulk

I am laughing about it now....but at the time it was pretty vile. I was angry that he dropped the bike....why couldn't het get the kick stand out and then run off? lol

Well what a supprise...the police never turned up today....I have to go to the station at 6pm Wednesday.....what a joke.

i had that happen bout 5 years ago,i had two blokes jump out a car and make a grab for me,luckily i rode up the pavement n got away,i was on a kmx125 at the time,seems they like the off roaders

if your throttle isnt springing back seemslike the cables trapped and it splits into two cables,one goes to the autolube for your twostroke oil and other goes to the petrol carb,well its like that on my kmx

Some serious #### out there......wonder what they would have done had you smacked one full on in the face with yr helmet...he would be sparko for sure, the others would have surely pegged it. Good luck with the coppers too.

Jeeez... Glad you're alright mate.

That was to be my beat area until I swapped units. Hope you get some luck with the cops.
