Here's a challenge for which the forum would seem to be tailor-made. The challenge is to write a story, collectively. Here's the rules 1. The story must be about a motorcycle, and 1 or several motorcyclists (natch) 2. It must be completed with a satisfactory conclusion by the bottom of the fifth page of posts. 3. At the risk of curbing the lurid imagination of some of our esteemed brethren and ladies, please keep the story out of the gutter. You may veer into gentle double-entendre, but we are not writing a porno script, we are writing a motorcycling story. Now the really hard two rules. 4. You can only write one sentence, so think carefully about what you write, because..... 5. You can only post ONE sentence per person who takes up the challenge. (In other words, you only get to contribute one sentence to the whole story.) So no pseudonyms, no multiple identities; let's keep it honest and fun. So, let me start. After more than a year of saving and doing without everything except food and lodgings, (and thanks to a kindly bequest from his late auntie Maude), Alan finally had enough money to buy the bike of his dreams.
