Dustin, wish things would have turned out better. I think all of us can learn from your experience. It sounds like someone may have tried to steal the bike by forcing a slug into the ignition and turning it with a wrench.
When I was younger, I had been through several "friends" that needed money, help, etc and never returned the favor or bothered to repay. Eventually, they ceased to be "friends" and fell off the face of the earth. Since that time, I have developed a close-knit circle of friends that has taken several years to develop, and another circle of "acquaintances" so to speak.
The group of friends help each other out whenever needed, with no recourse or reciprocity expected or desired. One of them was unemployed for an extended period of time, and one night while we were at the bar we just unloaded all of our cash to him so he could catch up on bills. He eventually got back to work and offered to pay us back - we said no.
The group of acquaintances would not see any money, loan, etc as I am sure it would never be returned. They are good to hang out with and party, but not so good on the financial management front.....
