This is so cool! My favorite is "let sleeping bears lie" where the small bears taunt the big bear with a banana as he sleeps.

I expected to see our very own @bear taking a nap on his motorcycle

That sounds like a challenge. I wonder if we will have one of those tomorrow.

Heh, That is one thing you would never see. I'm very very careful when riding. I rarely drink, but will enjoy the occasional beer, but never, ever, when I'm riding.

I have to agree, that as bad as drinking and driving is in a car/truck, its nearly suicidal on a bike.

I was thinking more of Bear using his bike's seat as a pillow.

I do remember sleeping under a couple of race bikes when coming back from a 30 hour endurance race. There wasn't much room, but I was too tired to notice.

Did a search for "sleeping on a motorcycle" and here's the first result.



This is not me!

I would never wear such awful footwear.

Of course not -- it's Billy Joel!
