I've lost a lot of weight since I started riding the bike every day.

Old Fred always wanted a new bike. We used his life insurance payout to buy him one.

Forget a monocue frame, the skeleton frame is really pared to the bone and you don't need guts to ride it.

Wife: I've taken out the spark plug and put it in the lawn mower. When you're done mowing you can take your ride!

Husband: Now she tells me... I've been trying to start this thing for ages.

Funny thing: shortly after I took the picture, I was passing the houise again, and, saw a lady in the garden; I comented that I liked her bike rider and she said that she was just looking for somewhere to put him out of the way after she'd dressed him as Santa Clause for Xmas.

I dunno:

Skeleton on a motor bike, a bit odd.

Skeleton as father Christmas???

They tanned his hide and used it to make the sissy seat,that way he could always be between the two things he loved the best.
