Drysdale V8 still AWOL
« on: October 05, 2020, 08:51:26 pm »
"Five years ago, the Drysdale V8 motorcycle shown in the photo above, was stolen from its owner in Melbourne, Australia. It was chained to another motorcycle, but the chain was cut and only the Drysdale was taken, the other bike was left behind. This wasn’t random, it appears to be a classic “stolen to order” operation.

We wrote about the bike here and it wasn’t long afterwards, it disappeared."

What can a thief do with such a unique bike?

Put it on show? Advertise it for sale? Or part it for spares?  ???
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

"They" say I confuse wanting to stay young with wanting things to stay as they were when I was young.

Like stolen art, the thief just admires it in secret, knowing they have something that everybody wants and can't have.
Life is far too short to be taken too seriously.
