    Strange thing

    How is it that we can see a bike as such a beautiful thing.A few pipes and sticky out things with two round bits on either end,how is that nice to look at.Doesn't make sense to me but i just love to look at bikes.

    I sometimes will pass a cute girl on a bike and realise after I'm passed that I know what kind of bike she was on. I may even recall more details about the bike than her, is that sick or what?

    The first thing I look at now days is the handle bars for a lack of shifters. I've even got my wife trained. I'll find a picture of a bike in Dirt Rag and ask her, "What do you notice about this bike?" She'll look and say, "It's a single speed, honey".

    Distracted Driver

    I find myself staring at roof/trunk racks on the freeway to check out the bikes! My wife laughs about it cuz if I get distracted driving, that is usually why!

    When i was in college, I worked at a gas station on the north rim of the Grand Canyon. A really hot girl pulled in with a sweet c-dale bike, and all my friends were checking her out, not me, I was drooling over the bike! Not such a bad affliction if you ask me! There are worse things to be addicted to (like drugs or porn)!

    I had a hot date last saturday. Although I did the best I could and we did have a great time, I think I have to admit I'd know more intimate details about a bike covered in fabric everywhere than I do about her. Will have to pay even closer attention on the next date. For some reason she does look forward to that. Was it a full moon or something? Monday's partial eclipse we had here?

    I agree with 1 cog frog, much worse thing to be obsessed about than bikes. It's pretty hard to be a bad person if you're all-involved in your bikes. Some manange though.

    odd how this description works fairly well for women as well, if you just replace the word pipes with limbs, and the word bikes with hot women:

    Not all bikes are beautiful..and not all women are either..

    Nevertheless, there is beauty in everything ....... it depends on the beholder, and how they look at things.

    The harmony and sweetness of a hand-made machine can never match the complexity and wonder of any female...anywhere.
