    Not what I'd conjured up in my mind at all.

    Fireman, eh? If it wasn't so OT I'd ask you a whole heap of questions re wind-in & payout devices for lay-flat hose.

    I'd be very, very worried about what would happen to the child in case
    of an accident if attached to an adult rider.

    Best parenting intentions aside, I reckon survival instincts would
    prevail - which in my case, causes me to tuck my head and roll over my
    left shoulder onto my back [1]. The last thing a baby needs is 90kg+
    of me rolling over it.

    If the baby is strapped on the bike, worst case is that the bike will
    land baby first, with no more than 20kg landing on the baby. Hopefully
    the baby seat would provide some kind of protection, or the baby would
    be thrown free of the bike.

    These are all horrific things to visualise, but all far preferable -
    far more survivable - than the parent landing on the baby.

    I'm working on a way to mount my little one/s [2] in their car seats
    on a bike or trailer. Car seat provides all the support they need. I'm
    not there yet, but I'm working on options. I'm not sure of the
    legalities of carrying a child in a car seat on a bike without a
    helmet (I can't imagine a helmet and seat being compatible).

    Volunteer. What kind of questions do you have? Our layflat comes in 38 and
    64 and we centre-roll or dutch-roll it. Generally in bush conditions, dutch
    is better. Red-truck firies mostly fold their hose into trays.

    There are usually two people 'responsible', not just the man.

    Jesus Christ, get a room you two. Lotte, what did you think of his
    pic? Are you going to leave Paulie and expand Theo's family even more?

    Not bad for an old dude, Theo. I'm not much into facial hair, though, but I'm sure if you got rid of that, you'd be a striking lad.

    That's right, I don't. I can't believe you're not past that one!!!

    Given that you and Bekkers are both so old, why don't you shack up (seeing as I'm not a fan of the beard anyway)?

    On that note, I'm sure Turner Burner would love to get in your pants.

    Noone would recognise me. It was dark brown when I grew the beard 15 years
    ago and I've had the mo since 1967.

    The general chit chat on this thread seems to have degenerated
    completely
    into totally peurile content.

    Fortunately, I have a wonderful group of friends off line and elsewhere
    on the Internet.

    And very fortunately, I do not have to put up with such BS when I'm on
    my bike.

    And Lotte, you are a very unattractive sheila.

    Patrick Turner.

    Which just proves you have no idea what you're talking about, Patrick. Anyone who's met Lotte face to face would know that :)

    Ah Patrick, I recall you told me elsewhere to toughen up. Lotte is
    actually gold, if you look amongst the quartz.

    Assuming 'sheila' is, as I am led to believe, trailer trash for 'female', I'll take your word for it. It gives me great comfort to note that the 'sheilas' in your circle of friends no doubt frequent local RSL clubs, shop at Millers Fashion, refer to themselves and other females as 'sheilas', perm their hair and have many a tooth missing. On that note, I hear toothless women give great blowjobs. Go Pattycakes, go!

    Lotte

    P.S. Pattycakes, you are nothing short of entertaining. Keep it coming old timer.

    Allow me to be the first to suggest you spend more time with them, and
    less with us.

    For all I know, Lotte is a cyberspace shiela only, maybe a bloke in
    reality, posing as a young mum.

    But this simply doesn't matter to me. I am used to
    many poseurs infesting the net, and some are quite pleasant, some not.

    But I don't know how attractive she might be to you, her mind betrays
    her afaiac,
    and as perhaps you should know, what is between the ears is much more
    important
    than looks to me, if that was what you wanted to say, but if you are a
    female,
    of course you'd assess your gender sisters utterly different to me.
    The sisters always seem to think men are the root of all their troubles,
    to which I would ask well why do the sisters root men then?
    We all make entirely different assessments about ppl and stuff and I
    quite often
    don't like some ppl I meet, in much the same way Lotte does not like me.

    Give Lotte another 40 years and she just might progress a bit.
    She'd benefit from education. Its patronising for me to say that,
    but we ALL benefit from education.

    It would appear Lotte's about 25, and because i'm 60, its only natural
    she
    wouldn't get on with me; many young females loathe older men.
    There is something hoary and obscene about them that can be seen by
    those sheilas who fit a "young and sensible" label on themselves.
    ( But many around them see things slightly differently...)

    Many women can't stand men period, regardless of age.

    I'm used to the bumps in the road of life.

    But I ain't in any hurry to invite Paris Hilton to dinner here again.
    What an incredibly dumb sheila. Bleedin sexless, afaiac.

    But some folks reach a peak at 25, and by 60 they are quite a lot worse,
    less tolerant, less able to talk about anything, and more peurile than
    at 15.

    Life is never a certain thing, and to be successful you must be at peace
    with
    what you cannot understand.

    And I don't expect to be always positive about everything.

    If I see some godawful peice or artwork I will say it is awful,
    and if some prissy puffed up moron of an artist gets offended, too bad.

    I feel you folks not liking the fact I am negative about many things.

    I never give credit or trust unless its earned.



    Patrick Turner.
