    Goodbye ride on the Lotus

    *Edit sorry see post below by me, I posted this on accident with out finishing it, HERE is the original thread I was going to link it to, gosh im an idot sometimes.....*



    Well I decided as much as I like the Lotus my father would use it far more and well thats what a bike is about right, being used So I took it on a nostalgic ride, one I took alot when I was a kid. Started on the street I grew up on and rode to the bike path in town, which in the olden days was the railroad tracks heading out towards the potato farms. Anyhow here is a few pictures, only took a couple as I was having to much fun riding! This bike really makes me want to build up my "dream" bike a Bridgstone MB

    So, the Lotus is a bicycle. And it symbolizes the impermanence of youth. Far out man.
    Don't call it a gooseneck.

    Nice story, interesting albeit confusing photos. The connection between story, photos, the Lotus and VRC bikes is somewhat ambiguous.

    Or as was said way up above
    Wtf?

    Gah I'm sorry guys, my sister is very pregnant and she called and asked if I could come right over and watch her two little girls, so I thought I hit preview post and left, was going to add more and a link to the other thread I made the other day. It was a false alarm no little one yet, but Anyhow as you can see I posted a train wreck........I'll edit my first post and make it cohesive, well as cohesive as I can make it (I'm a terrible writer and not the best communicator either......)......gah time for a beer.....

    I'm getting car sick ...
    But in keeping with the "Nothing to do with VRC" tone of this thread I did put some miles on the V4R
