The next one will be a Rider

Just got final notice I am going to be single again in the future.
The next one will be someone who rides!
Should be doable here in Colorado...

Go for a classic steel girlfriend. The ride is much better, she'll last longer and won't crack under pressure.

I thought it was something completely different when I read the thread title.





I was thinking you screwed up your can are you were gonna get a Mustang like in that "Knight Rider" or whatever movie.

I seriously thought that.

Oh, and if she is a good one...don't forget to chain her up well. And for God's sakes, put some leather on her to make the ride a bit more enjoyable.

I think the smart move would be to go on a worldwide test-driving spree. It could be a new way of life for you, that we would all envy.
