I feel that it is a insurance fraud. How can someone steal 3 bikes without anyone noticing.

Easily at 3-5am when everyone left. They wanted to be cool and stay at the hotel.

Maybe they were loaded up on a trailer?

With the amount of people around at tx2k13... I have no doubt it could be "cased" and wait all weekend to snag them. , a theif could roll an enclosed trailer into that lot and have it there all weekend without drawing attention just waiting for a lull in people around.

If you act casual and like you belong. No one questions or even takes a second look.

Case in point: my bike was parked at a friend's garage. He was going in to work way too early for me to meet him and he left his garage door open. Round noon I show up in a truck just walk over to his grage, open it, take the bike out and start loading it. Cars rolled by, people were outside walking around and not one person came to question me.

I mean I know it was my bike but those People didn't. So if you act natural like you belong, it could work. Just have to have big .

Where did I see that vid of a 600SS getting shoved into a minivan in under 30sec, in broad daylight, in front of a security camera?

I don't suspect fraud at all. I'm betting they were in town for the racing. That's 3 fast bikes. I'm betting they snatched a trailer with all 3 on it.

Man this sucks...

Normally they don't get pulled apart as quick as everyone thinks. I'm sure these are though. The engines are worth plenty. The turbo kits can be sold too. The motor and the turbos and associated electronics are worth some cash and can't really be traced. I highly doubt these bikes have less than few thousand in the engines.
