"There's a bike in that picture!?"

Let's see 'em! You know, the pictures that have people asking, "There's a bike in that picture?"

You know, ones with nice, cutie-pie, sweet-heart girls! (Or boys, to be politically correct)

Nope. No nudes or nothing like that, at all. But some cute people on bikes, always nice.

For example:

I was hoping we'd get a nice thread of pictures going, but I must remind myself that this is Foo.

It's three parts Anarchy and one part nonsense, and I dunno if there's room for ladies in that equation... Unless the anarchy were to withdraw or the nonsense disappear? *snicker*

I could post a picture, but I think I'll refrain from self pictures including bikes to 1 per quarterly year

I think for most people here, it's more along the lines of "There's a hawt wimmenz/man in that picture?"
