How to Tie One On with METRA.... (or NOT!)
1 Reply

PLEASE note... I did not rig this... My anchors are rappel worthy! My policy, when feasible, is to sit near, or in view of my bike. This is not always possible. Things happen! One time? Someone…Continue

What brings you to The Chainlink?
About me:
For some purely Philosophical Reasons I did not "legally" drive a car until I was 20... Some additional reasons may or may not have been white-trash related. I think Critical Mass is really groovy. It feels very '60s. There is a quantity of peace in that peleton. It is good to see people enjoying themselves in group form. Wait.... That sounded bad. It is fun to see people get it on together, physically... in public. There! Much better. I ride a "Huffy", but I am not sure if that is the Brand or a description of the dude riding! Though I own one, I do not wear a helmet because it gets in the way of my tin-foil hat! Gee... Was it something I said?

When are you going to be at WB next? I need to put a bike together.  My main ride is out of commission for a bit (my 36 spoke back wheel died) and I need to put parts on a frame I have.  What is the bribe needed??

I'm AMAZED we didn't get arrested.  I'm pretty sure that was a felony.  Nuff said.

bk's Creative Writing Kiosk & Mis-Matched Screw Bin: Ghost Bike

Is it our Future?..

The one we passed?

Likely that site

won't be the last

When we booked

I stole a rear-view mirror look

Our ghost in white. Beloved. Still?

Only tears run free tonight

Might and might and Excuse me..

What was it that makes might right?

For what should have been

Is now chained in...

Wheels, never to spin!

Bright flower garland try to tinsel but

Begged to halt their color-joy

Petals and pedals now link… Continue

bk's Creative Writing Kiosk & Mis-Matched Screw Bin: "Dinosaur Steak"

Change can be subtle or

Change may be great

Change is why I can't eat

a Dinosaur Steak

Moments imperceptible

or Nail to the Door

A rock in a river

Worn down by the war

A reef's up on Everest

With one loud voice, or

Perhaps Dillinger's Biograph

Movie Night choice?

The wheel on the Auto-car

or the Velocipede

A heart the motor

or fossil-fuel grease?

Change can be…

bk's Creative Writing Kiosk & Mis-Matched Screw Bin: "Maybe Ride Bikes With You"

I don't really care what the cranks are made of

I don't mind the enormous tattoo

I never mentioned the mustache

I thought "rock it!" and

Maybe Ride Bikes with you

I just learned what's a 'fixe'

Hope you can handle an 8MPH cruise

A good bike is any, to

Maybe take a Roll with you!

Champagne is cheaper than gas

Why pay a health club for two?

It feels truer than traffic, to

Maybe Ride Bikes with…
