Considering the current state of world affairs, what I have to report is of little concern. Last night, actually early morning (feb 23), my much cherished fly yellow with white wheels VTR was stolen from my "secured" condo parkade.
New it wasn't but it was very clean, it had a pair of sweet sounding Yosh cans that I had only purchased about 5 days ago. In fact, it was scheduled to receive new 208's yesterday and the shop was too busy to mount them. At least I was spared of purchasing new skins. Hey Eddie, cancel my order and please tell Kelly to free up my appointment.
This is kinda a private message to the weasly MoFo who ripped my baby... I only had time to install the stickers not the parts - they are in a very safe place (with the exception of the cans..) waiting my purchase of a new VTR. There was no theft insurance coverage on the motorcycle, so don't go justifying your action by assuming that you ripped of some faceless underwriter. It was my own fault for not buying coverage - it's a risk that I choose and up till now I have saved far more that the cost of a new bike.
Getting back to the state of world affairs - or at least in the twisted way that I perceive them... Early this morning, sometime after reporting the theft, I was watching CNN - hey I couldn't sleep - and I saw some poor soul hostage dude about to get his head whacked off. WTF is going on in the world today? Anyway I usually am oblivious to what is happening, riding and working - you know? And I'm thinking, (not a normal state of affairs I can assure) how much sympathy do the Iraqis expect after this... I'm also thinking, although I doubt at the exact same time 'cause thats gotta be impossible, that perhaps one of the political parties that are running in the upcoming election could use an offshoot of this beheading thing as a mandate. It kinda goes like this - we or actually the people who have a government contract, lop off halfway the left fingers of all convicted bike felons, thus eliminating them from stealing any thing but Burgmans and ruckus's and the like. Please note my idea is not barbaric - the cons still have half their wigglies!
Any nice VTR's out there for sale?
Thanks for listening,
