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

Sweet ride Gary!

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

It's hot Gary, but I think I already said that like 20 times at Heinen's.

What did the weight end up being?

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