..motorists complain about normal caravanners, imagine the tailbacks on a narrow lane!

If we all had one painted in "day-glo" colours it might help stop SMIDSY

Are the family inside I wonder?

Brians motorhome(the second one down on the page) looks a bit "industral" :? something akin to an overhead crane on wheels with a space shuttle(or even scuttle) attached.In the notes it says Brian is looking for a job at a bike shop,he's already got the bike shop behind him!

Casey Wong and Paul Elkins just look as mad as hatters! you, of course, could read that as "totally commited" to life awheel.

All part of the 'net's rich tapestry I suppose.Wind was mentioned and I'm afraid they did (especially Casey and Paul)put the wind up me a bit :shock:

I guess like any bike on a windy day, tis bloody hard work to pedal, unless of course it is a tail wind. I suppose if you live in it then there is no requirement to go in a direction against the wind, you can always choose which direction to go :lol:

That's more like it, streamlined, so no problems with wind, and big enough to keep your feet warm. :mrgreen:
