What do you carry in that plastic casing that is mounted on the left side of the handlebars? Is it pepper spray to back off bad dogs?
There are no bad dogs, only bad owners. That was actually just a light I had for the bike back then. Got a better one now.
Here's an updated pic of us heading home from work yesterday:

My gut's not really that big; just left my vest unzipped to stay cool on the balmy SoCal November night.

Anyways, I see an 80+ year-old lady on Ragbrai who brings her little Scottie dog in a shaded basket on the back each year. It's pretty cute.

Get a tandem and train him as a stoker. Always threatened to do that with my Presa Canario.
