Funny story!!!! Some p.o.s stole my totally monetarily worthless bike today. I did custom paint it though and my basic sole mode of transportation was loved lots.... so really its priceless I suppose. Stolen right off our front porch even!!! Guess you could say it's sort of my fault because I did not have it locked up? (most times I do). Just wouldn't expect people to stoop that low off the stoop!
Especially messed up because I was just mentioning the increased stats of bike theft in this poor city these days. Now I'm part of the statistics.
What pisses me off most about is that I just installed new solar power front and back lights too dammit!
If by random chance anyone does happen to see some sketch bag riding my humble mode of transportation around London town. Wonderful Blessings would come your way to see its safe passage back home.
Unfortunately, other than this photo of Kimmy appropriately showing off the blow dryer. I cant find a picture of my bike after I painted it.... not sure why cause I can find her's. Anyway, it's charcoal grey, with black metal accents and I painted TaToE in white w/ black accented graffiti. A Tree of Life is painted on the front and flowing back down the frame with the same style and colour scheme.
Guess all I can pretty much do about whoever is that desperately lost in their Life, feeling the need to steal other peoples necessary possessions? Is hope they someday could be helped and rise above such bullshit.
On a major positive give back though from this unfortunate hiccup....
Out of my reactionary mode of cruising about the immediate neighbourhood. I for some reason was thinking it would've just been leaning up somewhere obvious. I also informed some close neighbours of the thievery and gladly had the chance to reintroduce ourselves. After explaining to them what happened, Ian cracked a smile and offered me a spare bike that had been hanging around waiting for a home. It's even better than my stolen wheels!!! Best believe I will be custom painting it as well. On top of that.... he's a metal craftsman with great Artistic desire and huge potential for collaboration. Tons of inspiration for what may come. Life is always so full of possibilities when you allow an experience to just be and trust in positive thought. Things have quite the ways of working themselves out sometimes. I Win!!!!!
Still....... this is not to say that I by any means accept this offense. I WANT MY BIKE BACK, YOU BASTERD!!! (not like the asshole would be reading this, but if you are? then...... fah-q!)
