Costume bikes?

Just wondering if any out there drape their bikes in disguise for Halloween.

I know. That's a trike, not a bike. Still, come on, is that different or what?

I've improved his knee operation in the last few years, but Herman has ridden over a 100 miles since I first put him on the bike (about 8 years ago?). He's getting some new knee joints and maybe hip joints this year...oh and an ankle joint too. Medical grade teaching skeletons were not made for this kind of activity.
