    Extraordinary.

    I’ve been away for a while (See yesterday’s Ballard Street) and have been viewing the Back To The Future trilogy to cheer me up. I’m up to the 3rd instalment and this theme is very apt.

    The Penny Farthings are a bonus!

    Really? Bicycles? And for those who don’t know, these are penny farthings. The big wheel represents the large penny coin and the small wheel the farthing coin which was much smaller. Old British currency. My dad used to ride on in parades. He wore tails and a top hat.

    No no, those are unicycles with a training wheel.

    Once you get going on one of these (if you get going), a bump or fast stop will pitch you over the front.

    I notice Monty is practicing the side stroke.


    And Doc is using his super-powers to hold tight, so the Earth can’t rotate.

    Monty stands absolutely no chance against McKillor. His days are numbered. Doc may have to revive him after a VERY brief shootout.

    Give it up, Monty, and face your doom at the quick gunhand of the real McKillor like a man. I’ve heard of the short-lived Pony Express, but never the Penny Farthing Express. There is no escape! —Unless that transpositor has finally dried out….

    The original name was the “Ordinary” bicycle. And the one we ride today was originally called the “Safety” bicycle. Now I can see why!

    Welcome back Six. I’m very sorry for your loss.

    Btw I’m also a big Prisoner fan, and just recently enjoyed all the Dangerman episodes which can be found on Youtube. PM is one of my all-time favorite actors.

    See Andy Capp dated 12th April, 2006 and follow the path…

    Be seeing you?

    Ever see the Wild Wild West movie? 99% and I just have to over look the 1% I really don’t like about it. Very steam punk with Gordon’s rocket powered bicycle.

    Has anyone here ever tried riding a Penny-farthing? I never had the opportunity (only got a real bicycle in 3rd grade – art prize).
