    What a great forum!

    Just like to say that i really enjoy this forum and its approach to bicycling. It seems that with any hobby these days people will take it to the extreme and if you don't know everything and have the latest greatest equipment you "aint" in. It seems that this forum has a much more lighthearted but serious enough focus as not to be boring but definitely not over the top. Thankyou to all the posters in the 50+ forum for the much more laid back atmosphere. Btw i'm 37 and on my 3rd rum and coke so what do i know.
    Peace

    Yes, goodhearted folk here.

    However, most of us had more than 3 rum and cokes by the age of 37. Do you think you'll fit in?

    Welcome!

    Welcome to the lite side, the light side of biking... seems like there is a lot of younger ones that like our older style. Although I don't consider it older...just more realistic. Keep up the good work.

    Welcome! Just stay out of the Politics and Religion forum and you'll keep your sanity. Or simply up it to 5 or 6 rum and cokes and wade right in.

    Welcome reb450, glad you found us. I've drank my share of rum and coke...but these days it's been bourbon and coke or bourbon and soda.

    Yeah yeah, welcome. Sorry though, haven't had a drink since 11/21/91...best thing I ever did. Come to think of it I was about your age.

    Why do these youngsters keep telling us how old they are? If they would just lie and make themselves 50+ they wouldn't have to ask permission to post!

    Anyone who mixes good liquor with coke is too young to post here. If you must add anything, water, preferably frozen water.

    Hmmmm . . .

    68-37 = 31

    YIKES!!

    I'm not only old enough to be this guys father, biologically, I could be his GRANDFATHER!

    Where IS that 65+ Forum?

    This is scary.

    And I don't even drink rum and cokes.

    Gotta go for a ride and swim to recover.

    Bye!

    Good point. I was overlooking this when we were only talking about rum. But then someone mentioned bourbon and coke and I couldn't hold my tongue in the presence of such blasphemy.

    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    +1. If they'd wanted it mixed with something they'd have done it at the distillery.
