I thought you were dead, wood-licker.

If you need any help getting re-acclimated...I'm of no help.




Wow...Gastro's back, 66 checked in, if we can get one of our old mental cases to check in we'd be in business.

I'm new here and like my avatar, can be a fire breathing pest. I have always loved bikes, us orientals afterall invented Schwinns!

I had more bikes at 14 than I do now. I had a Stingray, Paperboy Special (original MTB) and a Varsity. What did you have at 14?

You got a great handle, arrgghh!

I am positive that with the return of the old timers we could, in short order, take this forum from the current depths of inanity back to the triumphant pinnacle of depravity.

Or, more likely, we'll all get banned.

I had a helluva time finding it - - I'd forgotten your username over there.

Speaking of breakfast: is the anywhere in the village that offers a variety of good breakfast paninis? We haven't found one yet but there must be.

Moguls apparently has good panini''s...but other than that I don't know of many places that even serve them. We are more wrap oriented up here
