someone stole my bamboo baby..


recently i was in georgetown penang and ducked into a shop and left my calfee bamboo road bike outside and came back out and it was gone! :(

so if anyone sees a calfee bamboo with green chris king headset, hubs and 10spd dura ace... :)

i feel everything in life happens for an empowering meaning. for me losing my bike was a lesson in detachment. i felt anger for a moment and realised that im better off transmutating that emotion into some more positive. so i just stopped being angry and started talking calmly with people that might have seen anything.

not having insurance i focused on how much money i had lost. but then i shifted my focus to how much people have given me in my life. i simply shifted by focus and started feeling grateful when only moments ago i was furious and outraged.

it was a lesson in life that what we focus on determines how we feel...
so if we dont like how we feel, we must simply shift our focus. it doesnt mean we never feel negative emotions but rather we choose not to dwell on them and get stuck in a rut. lets let them serve their purpose as a reminder our focus has shifted in a direction that we dont really want to be going..

now im riding a beat up xc bike that doesnt really fit me, but im having fun cos i refuse to let lack of material things prevent me from the joy of movement.

this lesson has taught me that as a cyclist,happieness is not what bike you ride, but rather happieness is just an emotion we choose to feel in the moment. cos the moment is all we have.. :)

keep on roll'n, regardless of what lessons come your way. :)

Mate!

I feel so bad. Like you say there is a lesson in this. But wow this is hard I am sure. I hope you find it or the bloke who took it gives it back.

Sorry to hear about that Harley, but I'm not sorry to hear about how you've dealt with it.

Take the positives from the negatives I say. Good from the bad. You will appreciate your new bike that much more when you get it, riding a nice roadie will be that little bit sweeter!

Ride on mate - it doesn't matter what you're on so long as it has two wheels!

bamboo is always growing somewhere..:)
 
Yes, everything happens for a reason. ;) the reason your bike was stolen is because Karma came down and slapped your bitch ass for being such an asshole to people on a daily basis. The theft covered a small portion of your egotism as well. The rest of your negative Karma will be punching you in the face if you ever make it to America ;)
 
Hey poster above.

SHUT THE HELL UP!

It's douchebags like you that come onto his blogs or videos and post the most ridiculous shit ever, yet you idiots have no problem STARTING shit, and always making this guy the "suspect."

Don't give me that Karma bullshit, twist things all you like, you'll get it at the end, not by me, but by your own crap spouting out of your mouth.
 
i'm from georgetown and sadly, being from the little island, i have to apologize for what happened...
but, do chain your bike up the next time around, pleasepleaseplease!!! it's too beautiful to get stolen again....
