What sign should I put on my tall bike?

I'm making a few signs to swap into the upper triangle of my tall bike, since it seems like such a large amount of space it would be a shame to waste it. I'm going to do some specific ones, like for the Earth Day celebrations going on tommorow, but I'd like some general ones too. Vote on what you like, or suggest your own sign ideas.

There is a lot of humor to be had with the 'high' jokes, but I don't know how far I want to push them... Depends on the event, I suppose!

peace,
Sam

How about; If you have nothing constructive to add to the thread you keep it to yourself?

Sam, there's a lot of valuable real estate between those tubes... Why not contract advertizing space there and turn a few drachmas in the process?

I like them all so far.

You could also consider: 'My other bike is a tall-bike.' 'If I'm wearing a kilt, please don't look up. I'm very traditional.' 'Did you know about that bald spot on the top of your head?' 'Your eaves need cleaning.' 'From up here, you all look like ants.'

Long live the lords of acid. I've got some excellent remixes of 'lets get high' on vinyl, totally classic!

Good ideas, folks, keep 'em coming! I love the "did you know about that bald spot?" idea! My other favorite is, "My way is the HIGHway".

I'm gonna have to make a lot of signs, or just sell the space to McDonalds.

peace,
sam

The best by far! Kudos

There's a jeep running around the area with "If you can read this, please turn me over" written upside-down across the top of the windshield. I get a chuckle everytime I see it.

This is off-topic, but it would be really cool if you could mount a large beach umbrella above that thing. Every time I see a photo of it, it appears to be begging for just such an addition
