I used a power washer on my helmet Saturday afternoon just to get all the mud off! You could barely tell it was white before I washed it.

Well, I got a video together of some of the excitement from Yesterday like the closed road, some police who followed us several miles before we turned back off rt124, the bicyclists, and some of the fun roads we did. I also realized I was in error yesterday when I said the closed road was NE on Pike, it was before we reached Pike and therefor more to the SW.

Also in hind sight this was definitly a "B" ride.... Byron, BlackdimondMike, Benly and Buildit.

I'm sure you guys have seen those stupid bells that some riders hang off their bikes to ward off road gremlins, biffage, and the like.

I got one as a gift from a Harley riding buddy a few years ago, and he got himself one too. He was pretty excited about the bell, since he doesn't wear any gear except for a skull mask, and the bell virtually guaranteed he wouldn't injure himself in a crash.

Since it was a gift, and since he had the exact same thing, I felt obligated to hang it off the Strom... in case he every gave my bike the once over to see where I had installed it. Thankfully, a branch or something ripped it off so I only had to have it for a few months.

Today, I was going through my junk drawer and I came across this Glock keyring. Having no other use for it, I thought it would be fun to install it as a "bike gremlin deterrent". I figure a Glock is a better talisman than one of those bells any day.

That is cute....Plastic, just like the real thing.

FWIW I think the bell thing is cheesey at best.

Nice video! Unfortunately, you caught me using the f-word in the very begining so I can't forward it to grandma. The previously mentioned bicyclists make a brief appearance around the 6:30 mark and the old dude on the rusty three-speed with fishing hat is at 6:47. -Mike

I was thinking something along the lines of a cowbell on the front of my bike, and a set of truck nuts on the back should be just about right.

Hey, Luke, you better get your facts straight before you go running you mouth to bicyclists. It IS LEGAL to ride two abreast, you WERE BREAKING THE LAW passing them in the same lane. You had the whole other lane to pass (which is legal), but decided instead to be an A**hat and run your mouth.
Grow up, ya big baby!

Sincerely yours,
Mark

My friends usually find out the hard way that when it comes to motorists who won't give an inch or stop running their mouths, my split personality gets summoned to the courtesy phone which is why I avoided this one like the plague. I love when I see them turn red and nearly stroke out.
