Yeah, I heard you couldn't enter without a cocaine dependency 
either - Jon, do you have a habit?

Chasing away from lights in the city is a pretty close thing. This
was a fun project proposal, now it needs pulse detectors, some
accelerometers, pressure guages, a small computer, gps, 2 separate
lead acid accumultators to take care of the Omron X5MF 24V (one in 
each pannier assumably), a speaker set in a rucksack and a wind vane 
on a 10 meter pole. 
Man, I would start suggesting that a better method would be to strap 
a 2-stroke to his back and mic it up - I am sure LAU could advise on 
optimal positioning. 

Now if he does go for strapping the motor on his back then
the Omron could also be placed in a small tank mounted on the
crossbar (that will keep them dry and could also house the mic
pre-amps), he could chrome up his front forks, get a full face visor
crashhelmet on and splash out on a set of leathers. Anybody on 
the list know of a few tattoo artists to boot? Oh, and now he will
need those TDF steroids to even get the whole lot moving in the
first place - is Lance on the list?

Many thanks for the extra little bit of selfpublicity, that will 
certainly help me sleep better.

Regards, nick.
