I just picked this up two weeks ago last Saturday. I can hardly wait to see the look of confusion and perplexity on the faces of my friends when I pull out my antique baleen needles and alpaca project from this bag :o)

You need to install a hidden camera for that moment! Nice one...

Oh, man, I have to make sure my hubby and boys don't see that or they'll want knitting bags just like yours!

It's probably not a real good idea but with a frame mounted faring and cruise control I could just about knit blasting down the super slabs at 70.

In some circles this type is known as a bagger.

Mine wouldn't. Not because it isn't a gorgeous bag, but because one of those left his brother paralyzed from the nippled down.

I am truly sorry about the injury to your Brother in Law. I have lost many friends, too many.

As a rider with over 30 years of experience, most of it in Miami-Dade County I know how dangerous a bike is. I have been driven off the roads too many times to count. Iíve been knocked down twice, once with injuries. Once I had to drop the bike or T-Bone two cars involved in a crash, actually drove away from this one but spent two weeks out of work recovering. Iíve had to lock up the breaks to swerve around vehicles I would have totaled if I was in my pickup truck, as they made left hand turns in front of me. I can quite imagine that the next one will kill me but Iíve got to tell you when I am done with my life, that God has given me, not even the Medical Schools will want the remains as they will be totally used up.

For me crushing the bones and sucking the marrow out of life is riding. I know that if I can live long enough eventually they will force me to stop riding and I have to wonder if I would want to live that long. I know that live was given to me and is a wondrous gifts, Iím not entirely sure why this is so. I also think that the will to survive can become an obsession, well lets just call the motorcycle the remedy for that affliction :o)

I donít laugh at death, I laugh with it.
