A brand new 2014 300XC was stolen on Saturday night while we were camping at Highland Park. Another patron had 2 bikes stolen from him. One was a 2007 Yz450F and a TTR125.

The bikes were stolen at night and pushed out of the riding area through the temporary barriers located at the entrance.

The KTM has a few unique parts on it that will make it easily identifiable. It has a tall seat on it, fastway pegs and orange Trail Tech Bar Risers.

We are offering a reward for any information that would lead to recovery of the bike or identification of the perpetrator.

The vin number is:

VBKMXN230EM338546

The motor number is:

0454954466

Be careful when you are camping, since they were so successful this time, they may return.

This picture below was on its first ride. When it was stolen it had the tall seat, fastway pegs and orange Trail Tech Bar Risers on it. Like these:

Here is a link to a Craigslist Ad we've posted. It has pic of the bike. Like my brother said we got orange 2" risers on it and a tall seat that are not pictured... We would love to find the people responsible for this. I can personally guarantee they'll never steal again...

I do hate to hear that. Sincerely hoping you find them and get a little justice before the cops get there. I detest a thief.

First time since we have been open - almost 10 years - that we have had customers bikes stolen. You can bet we will be on the look out for them. Felt really really terrible for our good customers losing bikes.

I know other places, even race events, are targets for bike thieves, and it's nice the HP has been immune all this time, but it looks like it's time to use a cable and lock on your bikes if you leave them out overnight at HP. I hate it. No one had to lock bikes at night, at least until now. We are making a few changes - not saying what - to make it more risky for any would be thieves, however, if anyone camping overnight would like us to store their bikes inside, we do that now for folks, you just gotta ask. Happy to do it.

No we thought that might scare them from posting so I took it down.

Updated the first post with a picture.

Please keep your eyes out for this bike or for anyone selling 2014 300 XC parts.

Any information leading to recovery or arrest will be rewarded substantially. Amount will be based on the level of information provided and if the bike is recovered. Your identity will be protected.

Hate to hear, will keep an eye out. Can happen anywhere, will remind my buddies to bring something to lock when we come for a couple nights in couple weeks. Awesome on the offer to keep bikes inside, Paul.

Set a bear trap near your bike. If you catch them, I'll pay.

Would love to be of assistance with a bear trap ::rofl::

We'll be out there not this weekend, but the next. Taking a few extra precautions, know the feeling of a stolen bike. I had one stolen in a different way last summer. Keeping an eye out for you and passed the word.

Any heavy duty hardened cable or hardened chain with big hardened lock will prevent 99.99999999% chance of bike theft at HP or most anywhere else you might be camping and riding. Something that cannot be defeated with simple bolt cutters is all it takes, and even a cheap cable and lock that would keep someone from simply pushing the bike away from your camp would be more than all but the most determined thief would tackle in your camping area.

That being said, I think what might work great is a length of nearly invisible fishing line tied to the bike and running into your tent or trailer and tied around an empty beer can on the counter, right next to your 45acp. ::up::

Kind of reminds me of the lyrics to a Les Calypool & The Holy Mackeral song called Delicate Tendrils. It says;

"Hang spent bullet cases from fishing line outside
all the windows of your house.
Put up signs, that say;
Please break in,
I would love the opportunity to kill you legally."
