Sad news (for me) - bikes stolen

For people who are visiting this page for a second time, I've created an update post here.

I've just found out that asbo and babyR have been stolen form a secure garage in South West London. It was obviously a professional job using a van as babyR had no rear shock.

Please look out for bits of serious bling on the web.

asbo - 998S:  Album link

Both bikes are unique. babyR - 749R - has the supersports kit, asbo is a numbers matching 998S with wide-track front and '06 factory gas forks.

If you see anything you think may be from these bikes, please contact me here. There is a reward for the safe return of both bikes, no questions asked. Or the address for the thieves. 
The spec - asbo:
  • Forks: 999RS F06 Ohlins gas with full titanium internals. 
  • Wheels - 16.5" 10 spoke magnesium 998RS Marceshinis - red stripe (in the first pic). Tyres are Pirelli Diablo race spec slicks, completely destroyed.
  • Disks: 998RS as above.
  • Swingarm: 998S (road)
  • Exhaust system: 998RS 60mm stainless full system. The cans are visibly longer than a road exhaust and require the seat unit to be modified.
  • Rear shock: DU43 998RS
  • Aluminium subframe
  • Footpegs: 998RS.
  • Ducati Corse slipper clutch with hand cut carbon cover.

  • Fairings: carbon side fairings with race bellypan. Blue Infostrada sticker kit - very rare. Top fairing is fibreglass.

Thanks to all of you who have taken the time to read this page. One final thing: if you're in the London/Surrey area, could you please take the time to print a couple of these: Wanted Poster and ask your local pub to display them. 
Next time you're in your local Ducati dealer or bike shop, please take one along and ask the if they would display them in their coffee area or workshop.
