    Cool motorcycle but the jacket is a bit much. Sad to think some poor cow gave its life for that.

        Easton's Bible Dictionary says:

        What a "cock's egg" might be I have no idea since a cock is a rooster.

            Sounds reasonable to me. You know those hobos, always starting fires.

              It was the outfit for the Distinguished Gentlemen's Ride. Everyone has to wear a tie and be somewhat dressed up.

                Yeh, it does okay on long rides. I ran into some young guys at a convenience store a while back and we were checking out each other's bikes. One guy said to me, "It must be cool going down the street on a sofa".

                  This is why I'm always on the look-out for Anglicised Bibles. I like my Saviour with a 'u' and I much prefer a cock to a rooster

                    I used to be the Director of Safety for a trucking company and did some of that. It can be interesting and occasionally depressing . Do you do that as part of your job, or just a quirky diversion?

                        All I had from 15 to 19 years old was a Triumph Bonneville.
                        When you only have a bike and have to ride it all year round in all
                        kinds of weather, it loses it's romance.
                        No responsible parent wants their daughter on the back of a bike that
                        is obviously set up to go fast and that's all.
                        I raced my Thunderhead Sportster at Baylands and Antelope valley a few times, and sold it
                        once I had kids and was moving to Oregon. I rode it to work every day for a few years first.
                        Now my back is pretty stable, and riding again wouldn't help it at all.
                        I don't really miss it anyway, I did it to death.

                        Also, helmets are for goobers

                            Many. If I had to pick just one, it would probably be Anne McCaffrey. The world lost a helluva story teller when that lady passed away.

                                There is a bicycle path here that I ride three or four times a week. It goes by the stadium where the Cardinals play and follows a dry, desert riverbed through an area that is popular with bird watchers. There are ponds that attract bald eagles and osprey, coyotes and javalina, and even pelicans for a few weeks in the spring.
