    the suspense is killing me...

    ...when do we get to see pics of Gary's new Serotta?

    It's got to be built by now, don't you think?

    waiting, waiting......

    Sweet ride Gary!

    If it were mine, I'd ride it like I stole it. There should be no easy rides on that steed.

    Don't you think bikes that are slightly porky are better suited to guys who are slightly porky?
    Me for example, Santa.

    I am sure Santa (Cheri) would love to bring you one one. How cool would it be if Santa rode a Big Dummy.....

    Awesome ride
    and the road becomes my bride
    I have stripped of all but pride
    So in her I do confide
    And she keeps me satisfied
    Gives me all I need
