GARAGE boss David Lloyd rode his prized Husaberg motorcycle in an endurance race – and then had the £3,500 machine stolen after he fell asleep in an armchair back home.
Now Mr Lloyd is so angry and hurt by the theft he has put up a £500 reward to get the Husaberg FE570 safely returned.
He said: “It is a very special bike and one I use for enduro racing. It’s a 2009 model which I have had for three years and have worked on rigorously to get the suspension and handling right.”
Mr Lloyd took the bike from his Soham and workshops in Pratt Street to Washbrooke Farm, Doddington, on Saturday.
He then took part in a four hour endurance race, broken up by an hour for lunch, and later returned home exhausted.

He locked the bike in his garage but sometime during the early hours of Sunday it went missing.
The bike has a Northern Ireland registration plate XKZ 4934 and he says he would very much like it back.

“It is worth more to me than any insurance claim especially given the hours being spent doing it up,” he said.
