Another trip and it's still there, you wonder "Why am I not eating it?".

Late at night, time for a snack. There's the pie. Perfect. You sit there looking at the pie while you eat it and you think to yourself "Man, this tastes as good as it looks. What the Hell was I waiting for?"

People are jealous of you the next day when they find out you got the last slice of pie. They look at you, they stare, they wish they were you. They hang cell phones out of their window to take pictures as they go by.

People ask you 10 million questions about the pie when they see you.

You will always be known as "The guy with the pie"
Damnit, it wasn't bad enough that I ended up getting a ural after joining this site, now the posts are making me hungry too!



Of course seeing some of the bike lists on here - you could just as easily use the metaphor "Bikes are like peanuts - you can't have just one"

Mr. Cob made a statement a while back about having a well-rounded stable - something to the effect of having more than just a hammer in your toolbox or some such.

Prolly mean a lot more if I could remember exactly what that codger said but you get the point

xXx EDIT xXx

Found it

"A man can never have too many motorcycles, like any good craftsman you need the proper tool for the job at hand. A man needs more tools than a hammer, the same goes for bikes." ~Mr. Cob~"

Shhhh.... you'll ruin the "All you need to fix a ural is a big hammer" mystique.
Quick go tell someone you replaced the tranny with just a rock and duct tape before you blow it for all of us!

Agreed absolutely though - for me the balance is a ural, quick errand/getting to work or downtown machine where I don't need to carry anything much, and also a cottage bike or two for puttering around up there.

Urals are a blast but not the best for quick trips or errands (UDF among other things). My 250cc scooter is small, light and great for downtown, but I can't carry much on it or ride it in the winter. And the cottage bike (eventually bikes likely) are up there for the purpose of quick rides without having to be driven back and forth to the city (so they're ugly and cheap - emphasis on cheap.)

Hmm.... any way we can work in a quote that says we also need more than one kind of pie?

That's why in addition to a hammer, you need a BFH and a LDH for fine tuning.
