Yeah, and it seems as though everyone out there is tryin'.

I mean, like, it's interesting seeing the newcomer Latino pimp style compared with the Brutha Hood style and, of course, the young whitey homage to the founders of pimp style. :wink:

Hey, that could have been me!

Unless he was pimpin'. LOL

I commute to work and back ~50 miles round trip, rain, cold or not (I don't ride if there's ice or snow on the roads]. Temps this week were mid 20s in the am and mid 30s in the pm.

Of course I'm packing [electric] heat so I'm toasty underneath. :lol: :wink:

When I lived in MN in my youth I had a paper delivery route and used my bicycle in summer and winter; in winter I had a ski which mounted in place of the front wheel on the bikes fork axle. Wasn't all that practical in deeper snow, but worked OK in light snow. Of course on ice the front end slid out like an overspeeding and out-of-control luge. :oops: :wink:

I saw a guy riding a motorcycle today! It was like 40°, so all the snow had melted, but still! Talk about a big, hairy, swingin' pair! :shock:
