    we all talk about our encounters with the interested public, let me tell you about this particular one...

    last week, the peninsula held it's community garage-sale, it's apparently a big tourist event, the place was packed.

    i'm checking out a neighbor's wares (i think they all just buy each other's stuff & sell it to each other next year) and the bike's parked in the gravel by the road. i look over to see a boy about 10 years old frozen in his tracks & just going ga-ga over sabrina, mom's riding herd and seeing dollar-signs, dad's staying out of it.

    so, i saunter over and introduce myself, to mom & dad. i have an MBc sticker in my hand and i'm telling them "we don't sell anything, we're a community of owners of these bicycles. your boy can come in & see about 350 different motoredbikes. i'm the administrator and i promise it's safe for him to browse."

    I rode mine last saturday to the petrol station and mower shop, and could have sold it three times over! :D

    heck yeah, if i had capitol i'd be in business here, but "the next generation..." is my point, i wanna hook 'em when
    the mad-dream is fresh, and i was commenting on how cool this community must seem to a little boy :)

    also, it feels pretty good knowing the kid is safe if mom & pop let him browse MBc 8)

    that's what i'm talkin' about...i don't have any kids, but if i did i'd be the coolest (or craziest) dad on my street, too.

    thanks, chopper...if ya seen my other posts today, you'll understand why i was reaching for something positive :)
