Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

i had a motorcycle stolen from me 4 months after i bought it.
and i only had liability insurance so i had to pay 32 months on a bike i didn't even have.

fyi, karma is a *****!

Sorry your bike was jacked. Look on craigslist, Goldenwest swap meet, maybe it will turn up. Went to HBBikes last year and was offered a special deal(stolen) bike, turned around and left, never went back. I don't think he was the owner.

Dude, mine was stolen last week, I feel your pain. But on your birthday?!?!? Jesus bro, I'm terribly sorry. Right now since I don't have a bike I've been strength training until my mountain bike comes out of the shop. Check with your parents' home owners insurance..

All else aside, congrats on completing your fifteenth lap around the sun. We're all jealous that we're not your age (at least in some ways... ). Happy birthday!

Also had my bike stolen about that age. Sorry to hear it and hope the rest of your year goes better! Agree about the jealous of being so young.

Happy birthday and good luck getting your bike back. I had a Schwinn Continental stolen when I was 15 but not on my birthday. That was around $200 in 1972 so probably about the same in dollars of the day. It sucks no matter what day it is. I'm sure you have a police report. Check the local CL ads. Thieves are often stupid and that may get your bike back for you. Good luck.

Look on the bright side, you can legally fool around with 15 year old girls.
