Some donkey face stole my beloved Swobo 'Sanchez' last night after the Twilight Concert. I locked it up outside of Velo City on the railing/walkway on Pierpont Ave. around 11pm only to find the cable lock snipped by wire cutters. The 'Sanchez' was my best friend through thick and thin. Many people in SLC might even recognize it without me on it, or at least that's my hope.

Thanks to Jon Moak for helping me find the best bike for me. Thank you Dan Rivers for helping me trick it out and keep it running smoove. Thank you Ernesto for not posting that photo of me endo-ing in front of the patio at W. Lounge on my first night riding it. Thank you to Jesse Trentadue and Vanessa Welsh for starting the 'Tranny Bangs'  bike gang. Here's to all the good times we had riding around Salt Lake City, meeting up with friends at bars, restaurants, house parties, scavenger hunts and all the things that didn't require a car... just a sense of freedom and wonder.

I hope the universe returns the favor, asshole!
