I hope this is the only time I ever have to come to you all with very sad and bad news.
Last night (Saturday, September 4) between 10:30 and Midnight someone stolen Taylor's dirt bike out of the back of my wife's pickup. We were awake and watching TV. We never heard anything and the funny thing is, our dogs never barked. We had house lights on and Heidi's truck was parked right underneath our porch light and the crooks still stole it! The really strange thing is that these low lifes stole Taylor's dirt bike and race fuel can, but left behind the other dirt bike that was in the back of the truck that belongs to a riding buddy of Taylor's! We found the fuel can about a block down from our house in some bushes along side a yard fence.
If I can ask everyone to put out the word to everyone they know and be on the look out for Taylor's bike, I would greatly appreciate it! The bike is a 2006 Yamaha YZ250 with custom graphics and blue anodized engine parts, footpegs and shifter. I am attaching a photo of the bike to this email and if anyone sees this bike, please call me!!!
We are just sick about this! Taylor is training so hard for this upcoming snocross season and riding his dirt bike is such a VERY IMPORTANT part of his training! We just don't know what to do. Right now, we just can't afford to buy another dirt bike, we are just too close to race season and we are needing to save our money for the upcoming season. Things are coming into place for Taylor to have the biggest opportunity of his racing career that will be released in days to come and things are set for Taylor have the most unbelievable season yet and then something like this happens and feels like such a insurmountable set back!
Thank you to all of you for your help and pray that we find the Taylor's motorcycle or figure out a way for Taylor to continue to practice and train on one!
