Patrick’s Big Green Dump



Well I got off the ice safe and sound but the fish did too. There is always next year and that is why they call it fishing, not catching.

Now you really didn't think I could just let St. Patrick's Day just pass on by...did you? No, I'm not Irish..Dutch but that does not mean that I don't enjoy the hodiday. In fact, this day seems tailor made for enjoying a few green beers and riding bikes. Some folks have been cooped up behind a computer or in their basement, just waiting for the chance to dust off the old bike.

Kinda like this guy... 

Well, wait no more my friends because its St. Patrick's Day combined with Friday. Glory Be! 


Hey, that's all the time I've got this week, I'm damn near falling asleep at the keyboard.

Do you have.an original Rat Ride? Upload them to the dump HERE. Or even if its not send it in.

As always thanks for uploading your photos. Its really cool to see what you folks do with your bikes and I know everbody else loves to see them too. Keep up the good work. 

I gotta get some air and a green beer somewhere. Have a safe one and keep the rubber side down.

I'll see you out there.
