If your bike were a song.....

....which song would it be?

...and please don't say 'Bicycle' by Queen, its too obvious.

OK, I'll start. I think my Surly LHT is 'You Sexy thing' by Hot Chocolate, and my Cannondale CAAD9 is 'Bat Out Of Hell' by Meatloaf.



....yep, its a bit of a slow day today.

"The Great Alaska Railroad" by Hobo Jim always goes through my head when riding the Rat Rod. It weighs a ton, but rolls steady like a hand cart. When I get a good cruise going in summer I can head in the back to fix some coffee and enjoy the view.
