Sometimes I get to thinking on these long rides. Scary. Sometimes, I even get a flash of inspiration.
...If I had skills like that Professor guy on the Simpsons, I'd invent a few contraptions to help a rider out.
There's gotta be some things out there that we all (or at least some of us) could put to use - be it for performance, maintenance, or leisurely applications.
...Yesterday's idea was to invent a gadget that looks like one of those mini nostril-hair trimmers, only this thing sucks the snot right out of your nose instead! No more runny nose snot all over the place while climbing or descending a steep hill. No more fishing thru the pockets for scuzzy tissues, stopping to blow nose, or the occasionally disastrous "air hankie" maneuver...
Anyone else been in a "You know, a _________would really come in handy right about now" situation lately?
