Post by Grumpaz »

I used to ride a motorcyle years and years ago. Since my foot surgery in 2001 I can no longer ride a bike as I cannot use the foot brake.

Soooooooo, I was a Walmart Saturday and they had this really neat little scooter with an electric motor and hand brakes and it will go a rapid, tears to your eyes 15 miles per hour. I was in my priceline and I thought....why not??

So watch out all you big bike riders...that little blue streak you see puttering down the road just might be me.

Dont do it Grumpy ! Find someone with a sidecar. That way you can just gaze out and let your knuckles drag on the asphalt, maybe hide a flask down by your feet. Put on some kooky goggles and a long scarf. Thats way better than a Wal Mart moped !

Isadora Duncan tried that and look what happened to her.

I prefer Mick Dohan's solution - he had a thumb operated brake fitted and kept on racing.

On the other hand, you don't need the rear brake anyway - the back wheel's in the air whilst you're braking so it does no good.

I'm sure you meant eclairs...not eclat my dear LuLu.. and I have a wonderful recipe for chocolate eclairs. But I do believe they would be quite messy to eat whilst I'm riding my Harley with style and grace. (whoever she is) lol.

ECLAT! A French word known to crossword puzzle doers! It means brilliance---or something similar!
