Stolen smart bike recovers itself

Saw this story today:

Stolen $7,000 Smart Bike Rescues Itself | The Snitch | San Francisco | San Francisco News and Events | SF Weekly

Guy buys $7k smart e-bike. It gets stolen on the same day. And it was recovered.'

That's nothing...

I've applied for a patent for a bike that rides itself and conveys the benefits of actual riding to the owner. It's metaphysical in nature...

I have another idea for a bike that, when ridden, reverses time just enough that you get back two hours a day. Still working on the reduction to practice...

Sign me up when the time-reversing bike is available. For some reason, I think it might be more than $7k.
