Just months after British rider Henry Crew returned home after becoming the youngest rider to circumnavigate the globe on a motorcycle, the very bike he made the journey on has been stolen.
Crew reported to his followers that his Ducati Desert Sled that he rode over 55,000 miles through 35 countries over a period of 381 days was stolen from his parents home in Petersfield, Hampshire the night of August.
Why anyone would want to steal the distinct bike is as yet unknown, as it is far from a perfect example of the capable Ducati Scrambler.
Understandably, most of the bike’s value is sentimental to Crew, who spent every day of his year-long journey with the bike as he rode around the globe raising funds for the Movember Foundation.
“If you can keep an eye out for a white Ducati Desert Sled that looks like it’s done 60,000 miles in a year, cracked exhaust plate, stickers, scratches, red fuel cans or black winding roads plates on the side. It’s pretty unique and sentimental to me.I appreciate all your help and efforts in recovering it!"
At the time of writing there has been no word on whether Crew's unique and battered Desert Sled has been recovered.
