I need to vent and elaborate a little bit on my new living arrangement.  As I sit here on my patio, smoking a bowl and drinking a Woodchuck praying that the hispanic kids upstairs finally stop jumping through my ceiling after listening to this nonsense for over an hour, I wonder what kind of horrific mistake the wife has made with the choice of this place.  I've talked to several neighbors over the last 3 days and most everyone is quite nice and all say this place is GHETTO "welcome to Waterfield Court".  I have a car port but I fear the Blackhawk is at risk.  I need a heavy duty bike lock.  I fucking hate this place and I'm only 3 days into a 13 month lease.  FML   :(

No chance you can get out of the lease within the first few weeks?
Fly me and my bike over, my mate aswell. We will sit in your carport, rifles in hand and protect Blackhawk at night ;D

Yeah, this place makes me want to get my conceal carry.  I was laying down uh bed last night and realized I still had my knife in my pocket.  I said to my wife "I guess I don't need to bring my pocket knife to bed.  On second thought, maybe I should."  On 3rd thought, maybe I should get my Bowie knife out of my camping gear.  Things can always be worse, but shit they should could be better than this place too.

I need some ideas of how to protect the Blackhawk and deter people from wanting to steal it.

<THOUGHT OF THE DAY>

The early bird catches the worm and pays the bills.  The lazy dog is always rested and ready to play.  I wish I was a flying dog.

One of the guys on Another Forum posed the same problem today: how to protect his bike in the ghetto. One excellent suggestion was to rent a garage with other local bike riders, split the cost and share the shed.

I took my daughter to her after school activity the other day and made up a joke while I was watching.

Who needs a therapist when you own a bike?!  Road therapy is not only more effective, it's cheaper and more rewarding than sitting in an office and explaining your problems to a person who doesn't really understand anyway.  Jump in the saddle and ride your problems away!

There is no room for suicidal thoughts on a bike......  There's too many homicidal cagers to worry about!   ;D   Seriously tho, I haven't been to a therapist in a few years now.  Still have to see the psychiatrist to keep my meds in line, but no therapists.  And why does my new apartment smell like an elderly couple died of old age while having sex in here?!  I've been trying to figure out this smell for 2 weeks, and this is the best description I can come up with.  It's not overpowering, but it's there.
