Variety folks, is what makes the world go round.

He loves his bike, he loves his Levi's, he loves his country, he loves his freedom of expression.

Only in America will that buy you a fail.

I would like to see the side view of this bike at night. I am guessing that is why he did it. It is not that much of a stretch to think a good friend of his, or even himself, was taken t-boned at an intersection at night and the driver said, "I didn't see him"

Dropped one? Missed a spot? Maybe he thought to mess with everybody having a lingering OCD?

A more english syntax appropriate ordering would be:

Habere currus non facit auriga.
Regardless of syntax, it's catchy. I like it.


Kinda reminds me of a Tyler Durden quote : "Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken."
