There is no way Slippy is riding a "trike" with a basket on the handlebars. That would put a severe dent in my "Mess with me and your severed head will end up on a Pike" reputation.
Easy solution, stick the head in the basket on the handlebars. No one will laugh at you after that.

He's one "cool customer"!
Exactly, Baglady. Horses have one more trick up their sleeves- they can make new horses. That's something bikes never learned how to do!

Bikes don't need acres of food though and with proper care they will last longer than most people - you just need bullet proof tires and wheels and a chain made of unbreakable, non-wearing unobtainium.
I do agree that horses are better than bikes. They are better climbing hills and a lot easier on the legs than bicycles. They also have personalities that can be quite ... entertaining.

Good point. Bikes dont buck..bite..kick..eat..go poo poo..run off or run up high vet bills. For horses..hobby horses are the best.
