    I wanted to start a thread, but...

    I couldn't remember what I wanted to talk about. Who's idea was it, this getting older and forgetting stuff?

    OK, how about this...

    Does the TDF on TV this month motivate you to ride more often, or ride longer, or ride harder?

    I remember!

    Do bike cops -- you know, cops on bikes (slightly modified Trek 4300's I believe) ride platforms, straps, or clipless?

    Or maybe,

    Hey everybody!

    I just got 18 dollars in the mail and I'm trying to figure out how to spend it at the LBS! Should I buy some extra tubes, or a spare patch kit, or both, or neither? And what should I do with the change? Buy some Mexican food? Or pie? Or a cool one down at the beach after my evening ride?

    What do you think?

    Bike cops around here ride slightly modified Kawasakis and BMW's with platforms and shiny leather trooper boots.

    Now that I look at it, looks like straps.

    Reckon it was probably about a diet to lose weight- What foods to cut out- How much pasta can you eat without putting on weight but still retain enough calories for a ride. What curry or chinese foods to avoid- Is a lamb Bhoona less fattening than a chicken Korma and are Home made steak and kidney pies worth eating when you can buy 24 of them for $5 down at wallmart. Then there are the desserts but I had better not start on them as the Keyboard is getting Damp with the dribble I am Typing.

    I googled 'police bicycles' and looked at the images. Looks to me like straps are the winner. Some of the officers were wearing athletic shoes--not the best for effecient biking but probably best when you have to dump the bike and take off on foot.

    Didja' ever think about what tire pressure they run on cop bikes?

    I stoped one the other day and asked him if he was wearing persuit shoes.
    He said he didn't know and he was to bussey to talk.
    I said sorry I bothered you, and road off. Looking in my mirrow I seen him go back to eating his donut.

    OK, so how do I hook up my Ipod to the back of my VDub's radio? And, do you know how to get the darn raido out to see the back?

    OOOPPPS! I forgot this was the bike forum and not the VDub fourm. Now, where is the address for that other fourm?

    I don't know about pedals but the pack of 20 or more that headed past me in May on the WO&D had some nice looking dual halogen lights on their MTB.
    OH - they also ran a stop sign at a trail / driveway entrance en-masse

    OK you knuckleheads. Some of you think it's real cute to make sport of police officers who patrol by means of a bicycle. Well let me tell you something, an officer on a bike can make it to an accident scene 27% faster than he could in a patrol car, and that's on a bad day. Lives are saved every single day by the men in blue who risk their own lives to save yours. So the next time you see a cop on a bike and feel like making a wisecrack, just remember this: the life he saves may be yours, or the life of someone you love. And that's not counting the times a felon is apprehended because a sharp sighted patrolman can spot any suspicious movement from his bicyle 329% better than he could from a patrol car. And that felon may be en route to do you harm, or do harm to one of your loved ones but for the actions of a man in blue, riding a bike of the same color. So keep laughing, all you beatniks and hippies and liberals out there, because some day it might be an officer on a bicycle who breaks up your pot party or your communist party. And then you won't be laughing so hard, will you?

    If I have asprin in my backpack while I'm bicycling does that make me a drug pedler?
