Safety Nannies Rejoice!

Crispin Sinclair, son of Clive Sinclair inventor of the computer of the same name, has announced the launch of the worlds safest bicycle. For only $2970.00 you too can have a recumbent bike with crash bars and a full roll cage. For an additional $1480, you can get a 1/3hp electric motor attached to help speed you on your way.

O.K. that roll cage might have helped when I got T-boned by the kid on the mountain bike but at some point you have to tell the bubble wrappers to piss off. Next thing you know this will be required on motorcycles along with air bags and seat belts. Someone will build a prototype and apply for a patent, then lobby congress to make it mandatory for all motorcycles sold in the U.S. with a "modest" royalty paid to the troll.
