As it turns out it was the tax guys, the individual reporting it at his home, was kicked for 25K with penalties and given one week to pay or lose the bike. They didn't take it with them. At least one guy was specifically named in the village beyond the person they were talking to.
It appears they may be working from a list, where they go that list I have no idea. But they promised to be back.
I know they have hit shops before but this seems to be a change in tactics.
