Ducati Panigale stolen in London tracked down in Lithuania

A Ducati 899 Panigale stolen in London was recovered more than 1000 miles away in Lithuania recently - just 36 hours after going missing - thanks to the tracking unit hidden on the bike. The recovery of the bike is the furthest recorded by tracking company BikeTrac, and saw the firm's stolen vehicle operators working through the night to keep tabs...

Great result, but another downside to free movement within the EU. We now import bike thieves.

I would love to hear that

 the thieves were British and were shipping bikes over there as it's easier to move them on. You daft racists.

 Well done to the team involved recovering the ducati, but one has to question the link to lithuania. Seems that owning a bike in london is just a huge risk period!

Nice to know that our great customs officers are doing the sterling work they usually do...hassling English tourists and coaches full of school kids going skiing!

Or arresting English born and bred people for no reason and keeping them locked up for five hours because they had the nerve to try to come home or confiscating English people's car because they have three bottles of wine!

What "recovery"?

The bike is with the Lithuanian police, not the owner.  If they don't "impound" it as "evidence" (read: raffle it off in the cop shop), how long will it take and how much will it cost to get it back to the owner, and who will be footing that bill?

Even if he gets it back, he'll have to declare a theft anyway.  It might turn out that it would have been better for him if it had just vanished and he'd got a straightforward and relatively quick payout instead.

So I'd like to hear the story from the owner's point of view once it's all done and dusted, rather than the tracking company.  Know any journalists who do more than regurgitate press releases?
