    What is everyone spending their free $600 (for singles) that Uncle Sam is sending us? I think we can all agree it won't do squat for the economy, but it sure as hell will look good on my bike!

    I’m going for a Fox Float RP23.

    Fair enough... its not totally free. But if this conversation goes too deep into the politics behind it, people will start to scream it should be in the politics forum! And I'd agree! I’m just curious what people will use it for.

    It's going to go straight towards a mortgage payment.

    I'm going to sit quietly staring at the check while thinking about the enormous debt this administration has created for our children and grandchildren to repay.

    Then I'll get me some hookers and blow!

    Our government has grand ideas that borrowing money from our already in-major-debt-*sses is a good idea.

    Mine's going in the bank.

    I'll probably drive to some nice town a few hours from here, stay at a nice hotel, eat good food, and relax for a few days.

    I think I will put it towards a new bike. If I don't do that, it will be going in the bank.

    I guarantee my bikes will get more ride time this summer than last. I think I might even race DH again this summer. Once.

    I'm gonna change it into quarters and lock myself in the bathroom.

    Then I'm going to flush them one by one by one. The best part is sometimes the toilet will back up and I'll feel like a WINNER!



    Who knows who I stole that from?
