Hi, I know I'm more of a lurker and a rare poster on the site (hehe well especially during the winter months) but I really hope you guys can help. I'm from Edmonton Canada and one of our national racers, Clint McBain and his friend Guy Tomlinson Jr. have just had their bikes and gear stolen in Vegas. I'm note quite sure how famous they are in the US etc but I have always looked up to them! hehe. Carrying on, I've taken the initiative to repost a plea for help that was written up on our local forum in an attempt to help you can either follow this link or read on. Thanks!!!

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

well all they really had to do to jack the trailer was bring a set of bolt cutters and a big freakin truck... i'm sure they just took it somewhere, cleaned it out into a couple of vans or trucks and left it... they'll never see there stuff again and I'm sorry to say that... I hate it when stuff like this happens to good people.

I hate to hear it. I am sure they have found thier way to a "chop shop" by now. I doubt they will get the bikes back but I hope they catch the guy who did this. Were the bikes insured?

I just noticed something funny.....this dude had like $50,000 worth of top notch stuff in this trailer but for a helmet he had a HJC AC12 ????? Did he run out of money when the time came for a helmet??

Hopefully Clint's stuff is recovered..

There is not a nicer guy in the Canadain series, I hope they can recover his stuff. I saw him at Road America last year, he was there racing on his own budget with his canadian equipent. The Blackfoot dirt bikes were stolen a week or so before, makes me think it is an inside job.
at any rate I hope they can find his bikes.
