King of the Road

I've never felt the urge to battle out for Alpha Male supremacy on the streets (for reasons, that should I explain them, would offer an arrogant self-depiction, which is certainly not the case with me).
If I ever did though... This would be my ride.

Guaranteed to kick the ass out of any hipster-is-it-NJS-stamped?-track-bike riding poser.
By way of Jenny Nordberg comes the King of the Road.
I especially love the crocheted, embellished seat. True alpha domination through craft, detail, and texture.

That's a phenomenal looking ride!

A few years ago, it was difficult to find synthetic motor oils, and equally difficult to

find someone who admitted to using them. Nowadays, however, you can find synthetic motor

oils on the shelves of Wal-Mart, and other retailers, and the number of people turning to

synthetic motor oils, particularly in light of the recent events affecting fuel prices, has

risen greatly.

So why do people use synthetic motor oils rather than sticking with the old petroleum based

stand-bys which are admittedly cheaper?

1. Let's start with the cost per quart issue. Synthetic motor oils ARE more expensive at

purchase. However, these oils last longer, requiring fewer oil changes. As a synthetic motor

oil outlasts several changes of petroleum based lubricants, the ultimate out-of-pocket cost

of the lubricant is less. This cost savings becomes even greater if you have someone else

change your oil for you rather than doing it yourself!

Eric, you come onto a bike blog and talk about motor oil? Next might I suggest going to a vegan website and talk about beef?
