    Pedestrian alerts!!!

    While riding with my stoker the other day we were on the tail end of a 20 mile ride and my stoker was in a zone or something not paying attention to the surroundings.

    We came upon some pedestrians and I gave the familiar "hello" greeting as we passed. My poor stoker, who had been battling gas all ride gave them a "toot".

    We are still laughing over that one.

    I guess I need to call out pedestrians alerts along with the bumps and shift changes.

    Berner's bike rule No. 47: Backseat flatulence is OK while underway; frontseat flatulence is usually not advisable.

    Stoker could be called the 'afterburner' in that case . . .

    As rjberner's stoker, I'll second that.
