Hi there!So I had a terrible experience last night, I was hit by a truck [civilian, not semi] and there were plenty of witnesses, police were called, I was taken away in an ambulance, the whole 9 yards.I sustained a plateau fracture of my tibia I learned in the ER, and it may require surgery but since that's not an emergency situation they sent me home with an immobilizer and crutches. I'm calling the referral doctor first thing tomorrow but I know I should call the guy's insurance company…See More

Bike Stolen Out of Garage, What Can You Do?

Hi there! I hate that this is my first post here.My Trek FX 7.1 was stolen from my family's shared garage sometime between 5 PM on Tuesday and 6 PM yesterday. It's possible that the people we share the garage with accidentally left the door open, but my parents think that another tenant in our building (who hates my dad) is responsible.We filed it as missing on-line (my dad has an account already because ~3 months ago his bike was stolen when the garage door was left open).
