7. The 50+ Forum has the lowest viewership of any on-line site in cyberspace. The chances of city, state, or federal law enforcement agencies finding you via this forum are virtually zero.


I'm way too paranoid to believe that! You know, they're watching everybody.... No one's safe...

NOS88, your posts are even now being analyzed for unconscious patterns of divergent thought and behavior. Initial analysis reveals an irrational love for cycling. Agents from the Lay Z Boy Armchair Recliner Co. will be contacting you for therapy.

Oh, crap! Like they said in Monthy Python's In Search of the Holy Grail, I think I'll "Run away! Run away!"

You forgot the important one- Posting pictures of your mates on the rides makes you look slimmer and more handsome for the Widows in Hawai. (See Big Paulies avatar)

Dunno. DeeGee is a regular (although he seems a bit "irregular" if you know what I mean);we dependably kick him around for recreation while waiting for posts we can show off on......and look where he ended up!!

I think 50+ forum members tend to have a greater-than-average appreciation of vintage bicycles.
