Car or unicycle

Wasn't sure which place to post this so I picked here. I had to run in to get my keys because my ipod was in my locked car and I wanted to ride the unicycle. I left my Coker next to my car for a minute but there were people walking down my street about a minute before and I live on a very quiet dead end street in a decent neighborhood. But paranoia struck and when I started back out I didn't realize my unicycle was kind of behind a bush and I almost panicked thinking what if someone swiped my 36er which would have ended up probably pretty funny because an old lady (me) would have been running down the street after whoever stole it but anyway here is my question I am asking...If it was between your car or your unicycle which would you rather have stolen....

For me it's a no brainer...my car and it isn't that I have a POS I have a 2007 Toyota with a great sound system but I have insurance on the car and not on the Coker.

So if it was between your car or your unicycle which would you rather have stolen....

having my crap uni stolen wouldnt be too bad, because my family might buy me a new one.

I've got a 78 convertible beetle, and my dream 36er. . . .

if I HAD to choose. . . I'd let my freestyle uni go : P

I could never pick between 2 of the loves of my life

Don't own a car.
BUT
Depending on if my car were in good shape, I'd choose to have the uni stolen (were I forced between the two choices). If my car were on it's last leg or in really bad condition... Eh, I could "go back" to where I am now, and just uni everywhere I have to go :-)

Stolen cars don't usually come back in the same condition that they were when you last saw them. I know a guy who had his pickup truck stolen up in Mendocino County during harvest season (the crop up there is weed). He got it back about six weeks later, but the whole vehicle looked like it had been filled up with dirt and driven around. On bad roads.

So I think I'd rather lose the (a?) unicycle, though I suppose it depends which one. They're (mostly) easier to replace. But I take steps to try to prevent either from happening.

My first unicycle (to be stolen; my first Miyata) got stolen in 1983. It was in my car. I never saw either of them again.

that would really suck to get both stolen. to be honest I also take mesures to make sure neither get stolen.

I'd have to say goodbye to the 97 Ford Escort. Maybe if I didn't have the Schlumpf it'd be a different story.

I only have a standard Nimbus, but when I come to think about it, even that is probably worth more than my car The car is insured, and it's about time I got a new one anyway...
