Thieves speed off with $300Gs in motorcycles
By JONATHAN JENKINS, TORONTO SUN


Ducati motorcycles are supposed to be hot and fast -- but not this hot and fast.

Peel cops say a tractor-trailer load of the high-end bikes moved so quickly it vanished before ever reaching a dealer's lot.

"It's very tough to do," Det.-Const. Mike Plante said yesterday of trying to track such stolen truckloads -- about 100 to 140 go missing in the Peel region each year.

The 30 bikes are worth at least $300,000 to the dealer and much more on the retail market.

The bikes were packed with a Whirlpool spa and three skids of toys heading to a discount store in the shipment that went missing around 4:15 a.m. Friday from Steeles Ave. and Rutherford Rd.

Anyone who knows of Ducati bikes being sold cheap should call police at 905-453-2121, ext. 3314 or 3316, or CrimeStoppers.

Now we know: a Ducati costs a dealer $10,000. Translated: cost to build >$5000. Add distributor's cost of $5000 in good photography = $10,000. :laughing

I'm not pretty ...but um pretty smart.

Hey, maybe we'll see Ducs at Wal-Mart soon.
They're already in stock... dismantled to make coffee grinders. You can tell from the distinctive rattle. Ya know what I mean... the 'I'm-broken-trade-me-in' clanking sound?

They were $19.99 but, like stolen Ducs and Wal-Mart stuff... the price keeps falling.
