This was on the south coast in the UK a few month back. Lots of Bike went missing. One guy managed to pull a bike from a washed up container, put some fuel in the bike, and it started right up. Don't beleive it myself because they are not shipped in a position to be started, but lots of people got some great freebies.

as they are shipped

As was noted above, picture looked accurate, but the bikes I've seen shipped to dealers are dissembled and take a while to put together, Maybe this was an owners bike that was just tied down for shipment and not new as posted. Amazing what a little salt water will do for an electrical system. It ain't good. Previous life was at Motorola and just a quick dunk into water, fresh or salt, just about killed the internal boards of a portable radio.
