Breakfast on the Bike

I already save time by combining my exercise and my commute - now I can sleep in an extra fifteen minutes thanks to Breakfast on the Bike!

Next up, a toothbrush with a rear-view mirror on the back end!

You need a vanity mirror and electric shaver holder. Then, drape a wall street journal over the handlebars, and have a cell phone tucked between your shoulder and ear. That pretty much describes 40% of the car commuters around here. Another 50% of the drivers are distracted by Cosmopolitan magazine, eyeshadow in the rear view mirror and somehow two cell phones at the same time. The last 10% are busy trying to clean up the boiling coffee from their laps, and between bites of their McLardass sandwich, on the phone with their lawyer preparing to sue McDonald's.

By the way, This is how I eat when riding, but I usually wait until I get to my destination, or wolf one down before I hit the road. Note: It's really not any healthier than a McLardass sandwich, but I make up for it by riding it off.

Classic. The sales brochure is hysterical. "overslept?" "Hectic?" "Have an unhurried Breakfast?!" Click on the last two pics to see the bike-fast plate in action. Too funny.
