While I do dislike the fact that bikes are stolen around here a lot, and hope you get yours back, I find it hard to sympathize when it’s left on a porch overnight. This is at least the second post I’ve seen this week about this exact thing happening. Bring it inside, and lock it up!

while i cannot respond for others. . . .i left mine on a friends porch, during a small gathering (no room for it inside), with the front door open and a window on to where it sat. the bike could not be seen from the sidewalk. . .whomever nabbed it had to come on to the porch looking for something to steal.
i *did* think before i went inside, “hmmm. . . .should i lock it up? nah, itll be fine, were right inside, i can see it through the window. . .”
i suppose my point is that its not so much about sympathy or the missing object as it is about feeling frustrated and violated.
