Fellow racer Clint McBain and a good buddy Guy Tomlinson Jr. have just had their bikes and gear stolen in Vegas. If you hear of someone selling similar parts via Ebay...please call or email Clint.

Hello everyone,

This past weekend (March 17 - 20) I went down to Las Vegas, Nevada to take part in two track days with Fastrack riders at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. We had a great two days of riding, but unfortunately on Sunday evening in the Orlean's Hotel & Casino parking lot my truck was broken into and they stole our trailer with all our bikes and gear in it. We have filled reports with LVPD, but I have a gut feeling that is not going to get our stuff back. I'm hoping that you folks, being in and around the motorcycle industry could help us out by posting this email and pictures and keeping an eye and ears out for any of our stuff. The motorcycles are unregistered race bikes from Canada (see description below), so I presume they may possible show up at a race track some time, or they may be stripped and parted out (e-bay, classifieds, etc.). If you hear or see of anything that you think may relate to this, could you please be so kind as to contact me (Clint McBain)?

Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you think may be able to watch for or provide additional information on these items.

Thank you so much for your assistance, I truly appreciate it.

Clint McBain

Hey you need to look for a guy a name Howie? He seems to have his hands on a lot of bike parts and I will tell you this town (Vegas) is full of Crooks always looking to pull a fast one on someone.

I just saw that in RRW this morning. It's a real damn shame. It really unusual to see that the thief manage to unhooked and took off with the trailer but not the whole rig (ie., truck and trailer). From the look of things, the thief tends to target out-of-towners who are not vigilant with their locks.

If you have a trailer, make sure you have the best locks possible and use them religiously.

Just a few days before this happened another guys bike was lifted from his friends driveway. He just bought it 300 mileson the clock all the goodies on it (06 cbr600rr) I read this on the local website. A guy replied that he is in one of the stunt groups and got real defensive about a comment made where stunters have a lot to do with the stolen bikes. Well there is a few ways to look at this I have been hearing about bikes being lifted in vegas latley and its got me worried. I think they might be parting these bikes out on ebay or maybe they are taking them to Cali. and tracking them I just feel so bad for those of you who have had this happen. I like you just feel like (where do I begin?) I also think Law enforcement could care less until the bike shows up and they hear about it then they take credit for the recovery. I will be doing some riding this weekend and know some hot spots where people like to ride so as I have said before I wll keep my eyes pealed. We also forum members need to look at the local track events too.
