ANGELA Healy is determined to find her dad's stolen motorcycle.

The motorcycle was stolen from Ms Healy's Eaglehawk home sometime between 5pm on August 15 and 1.30am on August 16.

The bike was secure in a shed, and had a steering lock as well, but police say if appeared the thieves knew of its whereabouts and came prepared.

Bendigo police said Angela and her family had done everything right in terms of securing the bike but suspected the offenders came prepared to deal with the locks.

"It would have taken two men to take it," Ms Healy said.

"They pushed the warped metal at the top of the shed and took advantage of some locks being broken.

"But the steering lock was on the bike."

A Bendigo police spokesman said the bike was a black 2009 Yamaha SZ and was worth $10,000.

The bike also has DataDots on it, which show up under black light and can help identify the bike.

Ms Healy said the bike was her father's prized possession.

"He went to so much effort to get the bike. He loved it to bits and was obsessed with it. He was always riding it," she said.

Ms Healy's father and mother work in Western Australia and only her and her brother live in Bendigo.

Ms Healy said she had asked people on Facebook to report any information they might have on the stolen bike.

"We have had some information on who might have taken it but are still unable to find it," she said.

"People don't keep (stolen) items like that for very long.

"It is just such an expensive bike. I am determined to find it.

"It is a good thing to do. It's something nice I can do for my dad."

Anyone with information on the bike's whereabouts can contact Ms Healy on 0459 951 638 or Bendigo police on 5448 1300.
