Where should one kiss their bike?
 
This is probably the most pointless question I could ask, but I feel like it must be done. I was thinking about it today and since there are rules for everything there must be rules governing this as well. Where should you kiss your bike after a good race or just a nice smooth ride? I'm a fan of the saddle, top tube, or headset. What does everyone else do? Where do you kiss your bike?

Right on the stem!

On the @rse!

The stem, where it attaches to the handlebars.

Not that I've ever felt the urge to kiss a bike.

But, hey...different strokes...right?:D

RD pulley while the chain is spinning.

Never kissed my bikes. When they give me a particularily good ride, I appreciate their good work. My reward is I stroke them with a polishing rag . I like to show them off.

That is just weird. I think that is taking stuff a bit too far.

i'm not limber enough to kiss it where i'd like....while i'm riding.

Siu Blue Wind 04-06-08 09:29 AM

On the stem. :)

On the brake disc, just after a long downhill section. *Sizzle*

Siu told me to post this pic. I use lots of tongue when I kiss my bike.

The chain

rustguard 04-07-08 06:49 AM

wow! and someone was making sarcastic remarks about naming bikes yesterday.

Who keeps their bike in the shed? In their lounge room? or in.....next to their bed?

soze 04-08-08 09:29 PM

I don't kiss my bike. I occasionally slap its saddle, though.

It's got me beat how that fellow can get into trouble for expressing his 'bike love' behind locked doors, whilst this fellow can remain unremarked for his open air activities!

A nice, long lick on one of the tires will do nicely.

rmfnla 04-08-08 11:26 PM

On the street, on the repair stand; it doesn't matter, just do it often!

Sixty Fiver 04-08-08 11:36 PM

It depends on how well you know your bike... it could be anything from a gentle stroke on the top tube, a small kiss on the stem, a stroke of her curvaceous tyres, and maybe even a few swats on the saddle.

If you get as far as the chain I'd say the kink factor is getting pretty high.
