Valentine's Day

Don't forget to give your bike a Valentine's pressy.

The Black Beast and I are going for a ride along the Torrens this evening and I've promised the Europa that she'll lose the spare chainring. :D

Good to see "LuckyPierre" (what's this name change thing then Peter L. ?) is getting new tyres for the girlie bike - lucky to win the ACT Vets race at Stromlo with fairly large cuts in both front and rear tyres.

The 'LuckyPierre' thing is to celebrate my time in 'F Troop'!
I know that you have to be old to remember when TV was black and white, but sadly, I'm old enough. :lol:

Not only BW TV but also an outside toilet, no phone, no need to wear seat belts, boy/girl segregation at school during lunchtime, milk monitors and of course since it's a bicycle forum, dragstars.

Bloody hell, it seems like only yesterday.

Now there's something I hadn't thought of for a long time - but I was thinking of the free milk that they used to deliver only the other week. Why? Because McDonalds have included a 'flavour straw' in their current Happy Meals - and we used to get those when I was in Year 3 at Primary School! :shock:
And no, I wasn't at McDonalds, I heard it in a radio ad in the car on my way to work! :wink:

Don't knock the dragsters, Karen'll have a go at your spokes with wire cutters :shock:

It was, wasn't it? Wasn't it? :(

I did give the girlie bike a Valentine's Day present - she looks lovely with her new tyres (Vittoria Open Corsa EVO's) and they ride well too!
Tojo wasn't so lucky, but he's getting some stuff done on the weekend.

I discovered a bottle of car polish in the shed the other day - the Europa might be in for a real shock :D

What are you talking about? I managed to fit a machine gun mounting to the front of my bike. :D

I have a pot belly stove in the BOB trailer, but I can't test it yet because of fire restrictions.

Fixed or pintle? Does it work okay with the front rack? Any way to fit it with a suspension fork? :P

Take it easy on the dragsters. When I remember back all I can picutre is the charming (salad bowl) haircuts you guys had back then!

The machine gun mounts to the handle bars for better control. It is belt fed and the ammo case sits on top of the front rack with the ammo fed up to the breach.

It should work fine with front suspension. You'd probably need to carry a spare case for ammo in Melbourne :D

That would come in handy when the only 2 cars you saw all days crossed paths with you in opposite directions at the same time

Have a nice day

Why bother? If you leave them long enough, they take themselves out anyway...
