American biker taken in by Irish community after vacation robbery disaster
Bikeless tourist offered Irish hospitality
An American tourist who has been motorcycling around the world since last April is relying on the hospitality of the Irish while stranded, bikeless, in Dublin this week.
Noah Horak’s motorcycle was stolen hours after he arrived in Dublin last Thursday, the padlock clipped while he checked into his hotel, the Irish Times reported. The bike had been parked at the intersection of Talbot Street and Talbot Place.
The very unique bike hasn’t yet been recovered by Garda. A false alarm found a bike in Finglas, which turned out not to be Horak’s orange, Minnesota-plated motorcycle. Horak has also written the names of places he’s traveled so far in his round-the-world bike tour on the outside of the stolen bike’s cockpit.
“The motorcycle community has been very helpful, taking me for coffee, giving me rides to wherever I need to go, particularly Peter Bookey who is the owner and instructor at Aaron Rider Training in Dublin,” Horak told the Irish Times. “I’m staying at his house in north Dublin, and he’s given me the loan of a bike for the next couple of weeks.”
After the Irish section of his trip on the borrowed bike, and barring his own bike’s recovery, Horak will buy a replacement in Britain before continuing with his planned tours of Norway and Sweden. Horak resigned from his job as an electrical engineer to embark on his world-tour motorcycle ride.
