Jeez that's terrible - and they got the 790 demo. Must have been an organized lot to walk away with that haul. Sorry man, hope you get em back.

Was on news earlier. Three helmets and a jacket also taken. Three bikes, the helmets and jacket have been recovered. The 1290 and 350 still missing.
Kom ons maak 'n stoffie.

No way they would be able to re-sell them without keys and paperwork. Unless they have someone helping them with papers?
I hope they catch those fuckers!!

Why? I think its  a pretty common MO to hide bikes in the bush and then return for them later.

No news yet on the remaining missing bikes to my knowledge...

Here is a link to the newspaper article on the theft.

Its only odd because I dont know the circumstances. They found them nearby in the bush? Even that is a bit WTF.

Quite common with a lot of theft. You see the same thing with workshop break ins, especially on farms. Tools etc are hidden somewhere for days until they get an opportunity to come pick it up.
- you reckon that thing will pop a wheelie? We're about to find out, SLAP that pig!
