I wondered where I left my chopper!!

I do know what I did with my Paris Galibier though and am still kicking myself for giving it away.

you see, thats why kids are so unfit these days. all these light aluminium bikes make them lazy.

if they had to lug around a few tonnes of Raleigh Grifter, it would do them the world of good Laughing Laughing Laughing
