Out for a ride today with the Mrs and a couple of friends. We stopped at the DQ on Lougheed in Mission for lunch. I left my helmet on the handle bar like I have many times, and was parked right in front of the door to the DQ.
I saw some young girl run up to my bike and run away again. I thought this was wierd but was in some conversation with my friends and didn't think much more about it till we went outside about 15 minutes later and realized, the bitch had STOLEN MY HELMET!
This is when I realized that Mission has a real theft problem, since the DQ has HD video surveilance inside and outside the restaurant. They had video of her taking the helmet and running behind the restaurant presumably to a waiting car.
So there I am about 100K from home without a helmet. Luckily, a friend of mine from Maple Ridge was able to come out to Mission with an extra helmet so I could at least get home!
STOLEN: 1 Black HJC Sy-Max II XXL with an autocom headset installed!
Will be keeping an eye on craigslist for it, but not holding my breath.
Will also be locking helmet to the bike every time from now on!
Life lived, lesson learned...
