    Easy solution, stick the head in the basket on the handlebars. No one will laugh at you after that.

    Exactly, Baglady. Horses have one more trick up their sleeves- they can make new horses. That's something bikes never learned how to do!
    I wouldn't want to be part of any organization that would allow me to be a member.

    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.

    Have 3 MTB and 1 road. Lots of spare tubes tires and wheels. Comsumables like cables, brake pads, chains, sprockets, chain wheels, bearings, bottom brackets, etc. And all the tools to strip to bare frame and rebuild including wheels.
