Chances are you left it at work and never even fitted it to the bike. :roll:

A few weeks ago, we got back from a ride and I discovered I'd "lost" my toolbox from my rackpack.
After racking my brains, there were 2 options:
1. It'd been nicked from my bag when parked outside the local shop.
2. I'd left it on a wall 14 miles from home, when I'd swapped jackets in the strong wind.

A couple of days later I retraced the ride and could find no sign of it on the wall or in the adjacent garden.
Next day I went shopping and replaced all tools.

Next weekend, I was clearing out the locker on the side of our motorhome and found the box in there. :shock:
I'd put it in there for safe keeping while my bike was left on the back of the 'van parked up at a marina for the week. :?

Ho hum.

I have lost a panner during a ride and not noticed at the moment. It was on a rough track though. Spotted it at the next gate. Had to climb back up a hill to get it.

A friend lost his pannier going over a level crossing, didn't notice until the ride ended. Just got back there in time with a car before the level crossing attendant sent it off into the bowels of the BR lost property system.

Probably at work - I once forgot my car there and I was just in my mid twenties, when it happened.... :mrgreen:
Best regards

Hi timmitchell,
Worry you not !
My wife called out to me from the kitchen on Wens,demanding to know what a pair of my dirty socks were doing in the fridge . I could have sworn i'd put them in the washing machine !
Tried to cover up this error by demanding to know who she was and what was she doing in my wife's kitchen .
Didn't work though !
