When aren't they though?
I heard this about some guy at SBW (as it comes as secondhand knowledge from my roommate that went there this weekend). Apparently some guy was riding with a group, had stop for gas and some chick there was acting all girlie (sorry ladies ) and manage to snag a ride aorund the block with one of the people this guy was riding with. Story goes the guy offered to take this girl with them but couldn't guerantee he'd be able to bring her exactly back to the gas station location. She's like, "ohh that's ok I love riding bikes". I guess the ride went fine until they had stopped for gas once again. Everybody fills up, goes in to pay. Key left in bike. Chick starts bike and was in second before leaving the lot. The guys this poor chap was riding with supposidly were pretty extreme in their riding abilities and had ran out jump on their bikes and couldn't catch her. (almost starting to sound like a urban legend...) From what I had heard this gurl rode that bike like a pro. So if thats the case it was a set up from the get go.
I guess this poor guy was handing out pictures of this gurl, I never did see this poster...... (good'ol sec. cam got her at the first gas station). The guy that had his bike stolen was taking peps keys that were enjoying SBW and leaving a sticky note on that bike telling the owner they could pick up their key at his hotel room.
Now whether this story is true or not, is beyond me, can anyone verify this story? However the point remains never trust NO ONE. Leaving the key in the bike even at a place like SBW is foolish. I know if caught, a thief would suffer beyond comprehension esp. at a gathering such as SBW. However stupidity is stupidity........
I guess I'm lucky to live where I do, sure there's still crime, but I don't gotta worry about my beast half as much as you lowermainland'ers. Hope it never get's stolen, hell anything for that matter....
What EXTREMES do you go to, to make sure your rides' there in the morning waiting for you? Bike Boot/Brace not applicable. And what LAWFUL punishment do you think should be applied to these people getting caught for stealing? Yes I know a stoning in the town square would be fully gratifying however, that's not ethically or morally correct. So? whatcha think?
1130hrs, first day off, time for a beer on that note!
