This completely ruined my 4th of July, but more importantly it's a whole lot of money that suddenly needs to be spent to get back to where I was.  Money I don't have.  My bike was practically brand new (maybe two months old?) and I'd put a bunch of accessories on it, and now I have nothing.

Ouch. Major suckage!

I've read that bike thefts are a major secondary effect of the meth epidemic.  I'd never leave a bike visibly parked outside for any length of time.  Bolt cutters aren't expensive and make short work of locks.  

I'm still hurting from one night where it seems I neglected to lock my garage door, it probably got blown open a bit and a bunch of my snap-on combination wrenches were stolen.
