    It’s a crown. And a crown, yes, is artistic.

    The IMS is a great show, comes to Chicago in the winter when we need to get around a lot of cool bikes and the people who like them.

    Pointing out the absurdity of gas-can-spout filler caps (once a fad, which this looked a lot like) is simply an opinion. And opinions are freely expressed here.

    Moreover, if that pisses-off some…. well, BONUS….. 🙂
