It's a bike! It's a rain gauge!

Wait! It's BOTH!

The owner of this bike came up with a clever way to keep his seat dry when the weather is rainy. I've seen other people try the same maneuver, but I haven't managed to grab a picture of them. It always cracks me up.

I will refrain from connecting the Welsh flag to the bike owner's level of common sense.

Actually, taking off the seat as shown makes it possible to use a small plastic baggie to keep the rain out instead of a rather larger shopping bag to cover the full saddle. That does only make sense if one actually USES a small plastic baggie, preferably with a rubber band around the tube and bag to keep it from blowing away in the wind.

Blathering on, one wonders if this bike owner used to have a roof rack until the day he/she drove into the garage with the bike still installed in the rack...

Quick! Get this bicycle a champagne cork!

I used to do this when I had a quick release on the seatpost, but I used a perfect little plastic stopper thing used on some vehicle hoses... it fit the tube poifectly!

I sneer at plastic baggies. Sneer. 'Cause I'm, like, a sneerer.
