    Big Nose Whippers bike got stolen on tour

    MAN that sucks!

    He handled it well though. Had himself a new bike built for $85 in just a few hours.

    The fact that some numbnut can come along and steal a bike like this without feeling they did anything wrong is very troubling.

    F$%^!!!! I grew up there! Damn... places sure change.... I used to leave my bike unlocked in front of the stores all the time.

    If you had time, you could probably get the bike back, it's still a pretty small town... unless some jackass out of towner loaded it in his truck and took it with him down to Phoenix....

    *shakes his head*

    of all things that *could* make a trip go south, this has got to take the cake.

    I can't even imagine having my bike just gone like that while in a store.

    Bah... what really sucks is that I know right where he was at, and I know which neighborhoods to go looking for the damn bike, too. I'd probably find it... might take a couple days.

    I hope the jackass that stole it gets hit by a car.

    In most instances I would never wish that upon a cyclist, but in this case I think it is safe to say that I would LOVE to see that bastard hit by a coal truck (just don't damage the bike).

    Anyone that would steal a locked bike outside a grocery store is not a 'cyclist' ... just an opportunistic bastard. The only consolation is that it IS still a fairly small town, eventually the jackass will get what's coming to him.

    It's the kind of place where your reputation and your family's reputation is remembered...

    I very rarely find a business owner that doesn't know either me or someone in my family personally.

    (Kind of makes me feel famous! )

    Anyway... some people may not believe in Karma, but I do... eventually there is a price to pay for everything we do, whether we pay it while living or after death, there is a price.

    I could not have said it better myself, not to mention a low-life opportunistic bastard.

    Hey Bmc...what are you doing out of the commuter forum ?


    Cheers,

    I've been following BNW's story because I want to tour, but I can't afford it right now. Hard to believe his bike got jacked in my home town.... Damn...

    And yeah... I wander the forums... I've even got a couple posts over in the 50+ (Though I'm not even close to that age yet! )

    I mostly stick to the commuter and mechanics forums, though... where I have a little experience!
