    Rye All bikes is burning!

    A guy came in the store about a half hr ago and told me he just drove through Rye and its on FIRE. Looked like the bone yard, shop, house and the entire mountain side is burning!

    That is horrible. My kids and I always liked seeing the bike yard when we passed through there.

    Dude had a bad case of hoarding. Didn't ever want to sell anything. Way overpriced if he did. Too late now. Hope he had ins. Lots of rad stuff is now trash. Bummer!

    I heard the same story about that guy. He didn't seem to want to sell anything, unless you were willing to give up your fist born. Hum, could be someone talked him into selling something, and it drove him off the deep end?

    Wow, what a bummer. Can't remember how many times I drove past that spot and now it's gone.

    Wow, you guys are quick to judge, hope it isn't so.

    That thing was a huge inferno as we dove by last night around 9 or so. No fire there yet, just police. Never seen a fire that big.

    Damn that's a lot of stuff to burn up. That place has been jam packed with stuff since I was a little kid. I remember always wanting to go there to look at all the stuff as a kid. Now I drive by that place everyday and always look over. It catches your eye. Guess I will have to see the aftermath when I drive by tomorrow.
