    My bike has a mascot...

    Hello all! In my never ending quest to keep life lighthearted, I made a mascot for my Raleigh bicycle.

    I took a little garage sale kids bike and painted it like the Raleigh, and added another rail (from the spare parts pile.) to the bike rack on the bed of my truck. The little bike will be a semi-permanent occupant of the truck. Just to see if it makes anybody smile as we go down the highway.





    I made my longest ride so far last weekend... 65 miles. But even that was in keeping with the lighthearted mood. The entire ride was made with the horse head attached to the bike.



    We got a lot of smiles on the trail that day.

    Nice, I cant tell you how many flatbeds I saw with a Tonka Dump-truck straped down when I used to drive OTR. It always made me smile.

    But your horse needs a saddle bag

    That is great! I have a little, lucky monkey glued to my handlebars. Hasn't kept me from falling though. . . . . Oh well.
