I had my bike towed cause I parked it in a no parking zone.

yep some high schooler stole min when I was in 6th grade or something like that. My friend knew who took it so I hopped on the bus with him and we got off before the thief did and ran over to where he lived. I re-stole my bike and road it 4 or so miles home. That was one of my favorite bikes and he jacked it all up moving the tires around so he could do tricks with it. The chain was always loose and never as fast as it used to be.

On that note, I have stolen a bike before. Saw it sitting outside the elementary school when I went for a run in the summer, didn't think much of it. It was still in the same spot a week later so said screw and road it home.

When I tried learning to swim, my asthma started acting up. Something to do with the water pressure apparently. As for bikes; i've just never tried (^i am that one guy who has never owned a bike)

Learning to swim is first and foremost learning to breathe. Manipulating your body to traverse water is very much second. You can do it.

I know a good deal of people who learned to ride bicycles in college, as transportation takes on a different significance there.
More importantly, you should learn to ride for the pleasure of it. You have a lot more freedom with a bike than with a car in most places, and the possibility of exploring or having "joyrides" is consequently more accessible.

Once, when my house got robbed 20 years ago. Not that I really rode it that often so no big loss.

I used to put my locks on other people's bikes for fun though. Was pretty entertaining and for some reason I had about 10 bike locks and no bike.

I just found out last week that my neighbor got his razor back in elementary school when he saw it laid against the bike racks and took it home. He still has it to this day (not that he uses it much)

I would never be in the position of having my bike stolen because I was never taught how to ride a bike. D:

I feel sorry for myself.

I remember i was wee little lad, and i left my wheels while i went to get ice cream from the market. When i came back my precious Minnie was gone i screamed ''Minnie'' out loud and for some reason drew a exclamation mark on my now very damp napkin.

The next day Minnie turned up in a ditch, that day i shed tears of pure joy.

now guess how much of that is actually true

No because my butt is being a bitch and won't let me ride a bike. But my brother-in-law's bike got stolen 2 years ago. T'was quite expensive since it's a mountain bike. Kinda sad because they lost it in their compound.

LOLOL.

OT: Nah, though to be fair I never parked my bike near ghettos and slums so that might be a good reason nor do I park for long.

Speaking of swimming, a guy last year told me somebody stole his sandals/flipflops in the change room. I put my sandals there everytime and never got it stolen. There might be some personal agenda involved.

I took a 20 mile bike ride yesterday afternoon. You jelly?

I've had one or two stolen, one I got back.
I think I was in second grade when it was stolen, I was living in this same apartment complex back then too, same building, just the opposite side.

Funny story time: two years ago I gave mine and my sister's to a family friend because nobody was using them. Left the two bikes outside like the airhead this guy is, without chains, he had them stolen in the Christmas period. Had to buy another that I use all the time... and with a damn chain.

I stole a bike once, it was late at night and nobody was around, it looked like it had been abandoned. It was actually not so good of a bike, the seat was cracked in places and the foam was showing, and the grips on the handlebars were all worn out - it was a pretty run-down bike.

Anyways, nobody was around so I fiddled with the lock, it was one of those locks with a combination. Set the combo to 0000 and it opened rofl. Free bike yay.
