    I'm going to get one of those little tag holders for a bicycle and put a little sign on it that says "100+ mpg"

    That's great Ronny....

    When I first started riding my MB to work, I got alot of heat from the guy's...
    They have seen me ride all kind's of motorcycle's over the year's....and as a race car driver they just could not beleive I would ride a MB...

    They would keep saying "How could you ride that Sissy Bike"...."You look like a fool"

    Well, as gas price's would keep going up, and me letting them take a spin during our lunch break's....five out of the nine tech's are riding to work everyday just like me....:D

    Yeah Some guys at my work are jealous too! Some ask me how much to build them one but I am reluctant to do so! Some guys say leave it to you to build a lazy mans bike, others just make fun of but most do envy it!

    But I think most people are impressed by it defiantly turns heads!

    I do ride up with a big school kid grin :D on face when I ride it!!!rotfl

    hehe, I get harassed by my students...I don't care though, I already know I'm a big nerd...then I tell them I fill up my gas tank for $2 and they fill up for $60+ and I laugh at them.
