    I thought is was cool to hold playing cards in my spokes with my mom's clothes pins.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.

    +1, probably ruined a small fortune in baseball cards back in the day doing just that. Who knew?

    ^^ I thought my dad was going to skin me when I dug into a deck of special laminated playing cards once figuring they'd wear better.

    Lol, My neighbor had an electronic engine like that at one point around 1993 or 94 that was made with Kawasaki logo, and had 4 buttons with different dirtbike noises. Early on we use to run over a soda can with the front wheel so it would bend, stick and then jam against the fork upon rotation so that the tread made a fairly realistic motor sound. Depending on how well the can mounted, it could be really loud sometimes.
