My Bike is Hawt

I love bicycles. I love riding bicycles. I love that bicycle parts - can be - very sweetly crafted. Bicycles and bicycle parts are, for me, the flip side of guns. Guns are very powerful and many of them are very sweetly crafted. I have many friends with guns. But I am more into the bicycles.

The above is a picture of my "Casino Cruiser". I live within three miles of about 20 restaurants, bars and casinos. It seemed a shame to me to pull out the car and drive 1.2 miles to a bar. Not to mention the whole DUI mess.

So I went shopping for a "Beach Cruiser". I found the beauty pictured above at the BroadAcres Swap Meet

It's a steel, 26 inch, men's frame, beach cruiser. $40.

I'm gonna juice (pimp?) it up. But don't tell anybody. Springer front end, three-speed hub rear end. Oh yeah.

AHha Ah ah ahHAHhAAHh...FIRST!

I bought my bike a few years ago. $40 for a 5-speed Huffy old fart bike that even has chrome fenders. It looks a LOT like your bike but I see no fenders on yours.

I have been walking to the neighborhood bar (1/2 mile 5 minutes) but I may start to ride my bike. I don't have a cable but I do have a lock.

But then what do I do when the middle aged giant breasted hose offers me a ride home?queen

giant breasted hose "insert word queen" offers.

I guess I was a tad bit excited typing that.

Wouldn't the DHMGF have a bit of a problem with that?

DHMGF is no longer DHMing on me.

I'm free to troll.

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
