Default Free BMWs

A huge cargo ship is going down, and it has many BMW bikes. Newspapers are reporting many people on the beach are walking away with stuff such as BMWs. BTW, it is against the law.

They'll be "done" when they try to register them in the EU as the chassis / engine no's will be hot unless the bikes are sold off elsewhere or broken up for parts

Sure yeah. The manufacturers cannot sell the bikes aswell. They will be marked for flood damage. You are right, any bike is woth 3 times its worth in parts. Most will end up being broken up into parts, and sold off.

In any case, what a waste! I also feel bad for those sea creatures who get pounded everytime there is an oil spill.
