- -I was especially primed for it because I have been gazing longingly
at that Breezer Uptown with Free Radical ... but that's rather out of
I *think* it is an Impala. It's a 2003 model, not in any of those
funky colors. (Frankly, I wasn't all that concerned with exactly which
model it was. I figured it was the chance of the decade, and trust my
buddy at the bike shop not to steer me wrong - he'll still be there
after this guy moves!)
I emailed to offer to wait if the man still wanted to use it - I *do*
have three bikes, after all - but he said no, he doesn't want to have
a million things to do at the last minute. So Wednesday I will (sigh)
take out the car, because I don't have a trey bien yet, and go fetch it.
I've got a "Day of the Dead" party to go to on Sunday ... if I can
find that particular dress, I can ride out there.
I picked up some spokelights for it which turn out to be red and blue.
If you hear about a cyclist being picked up for impersonating a
police officer, I didn't mean it, I swear! Flashing red and blue from
a big black and white cruiser, though... I think it's ingrained in us
to assume it's the constabularies, especially if I'm in my yellow and
black "safety gear." Hmmm... next group ride they'll think I"m a
police escort! Same effect as Critical Mass...
