Stopped by curious people

Can't go anywhere with out being stopped!

Here in the States we have NPR (National Public Radio) the shows are sometimes so interesting that it is hard to leave your car while the broadcast show is going on. Moments like those are called "Driveway moments" being at home setting in the driveway finishing the show.

Well on an Xtracycle is happens all the time to me, but in reverse. On the way home last night as I was riding my X in front of our Ralph's grocery store, a guy starting flagging me down. We talked about the X, my commute and Global Warming/Green stuff. Well I was in my element and got into a fantastic conversion. I love talking that stuff but at 10:00 P.M. and I really needed to get home.

I was wondering does this happen to you too?

And I keep trying to figure out how to hook up a little radio on the bike so I *can* have driveway moments on it :-)

Thanks for the post.

I have a small solar power radio that I attach to the snap deck with some cheap computer speakers. But with any wind in my ears or traffic I can't hear the radio. So I am exploring small powered speakers to use and then I will be set.

usually its "older" people - like 60+yrs old who seem to ask me about my xtracycle.

most seem to think its a really ols bike, or some kind of delivery bike - mostly.
