College, living in North Philly. (to be expected) I went for a ride on my BMX (I raced professionally) like I did most days. When I came back I left my bike under the stairs inside the front door with my room mates ten speed. Sometimes since my bike was pretty valuable I would bring it upstairs to my room, this day I didn't. (Dummy) I took a shower, room mates all came home and later that night I realized my bike wasn't in my room. I went downstairs and my bike, my room mates ten speed and my other room mates watch were all gone. I think somebody followed me back to the house and while I was showering they came in through a window and left with those 3 items. I actually found the ten speed but not my bike. I was fully sponsored and was covered under my parents insurance. I got fully reimbursed for the bike plus it was free from my sponsor so I basically got paid to have my bike stolen. Having raced BMX for quite some time I've had over 30 bikes....this was the only one that got stolen.
Greg, yeah pretty dumb for letting your "puter" out of your site....but as you can see we've all been there, better to be safe than sorry.
