what a passion can do...

Thank you Balrgn...

If you want to know what a passion can give you as great moments... another vidťo and you'll all understand this time... it's made in USA and a friend told me : it's ONLY in America... That's right. Impossible elsewhere !

Skip,

Don't hang any other bikes off the back...don't want to see you with any frame sag issues.....

Cool Bikes...Are you planning to add an awning too?

Thanks Kevin. I don't hang any bikes off the back, so no worries.

If the weight of a bike can cause your rear to sag, you better not be walking in the back... sorry man, but I am not buying that one. Wally dragged those trailers from capetown to cairo and some of them even had two tires hanging from them. I think that is a complete myth and those that believe it are entitle to their beliefs, but I feel they are grounded in fallacy. This spring I will hang two tires off my rear just to prove my point.

I happen to agree with you Frank. I don't hang my bikes off the back for two reasons. The possibility of theft and they'll block access to my bumper storage.

I was talking about not hanging any bikes off the back of this one. Not hanging this off the back....

Mom always wondered where my strange sense of humor came from...Of course last Christmas she gave me a plaque that read:

" I smile because you are my Son...

I laugh becuase there is nothing you can do about it."

Hummmmm....Seems irregular humor may be slightly hereditary...

Happy Holidays All,

My humor is often misunderstood so I have sympathy.

back to topic: I worked on my bike for a couple of hours this weekend. It's all greased, assembled and many of my doo dads are attached. Once I get a chain and a shifter cable I'll be able to go for a ride. I'll take an outdoor photo when completed.

Hey Skip, sounds good! But.. do you have bare ground to ride that on? It just snowed about 1" here in the NW... but I took my 9 y.o. daughter for a quick bike ride around the neighborhood anyway... she had fun going "through the snow"... lots of giggles from her.

It's 57 degrees right now. We went for a bike ride at lunch today. (with another bike). Chance of snow Tuesday night, but nothing below freezing for awhile.

Skip, Will you bringing your new bike to CBR? I'll bring mine if you bring yours.

And about that rack... if a bike is going to cause rear end separation, you better not walk in the back. I am not joking. Don't walk back there.

See you at WDCU - Washington D.C. Unit (#170) Ľ Cherry Blossom Rally

I assume CBR is the crawfish fest? I am still planning on attending that. Although with our family financial crisis anything can change.
