The family Spridget

(I know it's not really a Spridget, but it's close)

My parents were out for a visit last week -- they're still back in RI -- and I took them for a drive in the Morris. Not counting my wife's car, the Morris is officially the most practical car I have. At least it has a back seat and back doors!

Cool. Say hi for me. We probably know some of the same people. It's a RI thing. They will understand.

I took both my parents out for a ride in the Sprite -- individually of course. Getting in and out for them with the car being so low made it so one ride was enough for both of them.

Nice 90's era Gary Fisher hanging from the ceiling. Is that a Hoo Koo E Koo?

I know that "thing" well. Rhode Island born and raised.

No idea what a "Hoo Koo E Koo" is. I bought that bike from a friend who was upgrading. I don't ride much, so it's plenty of bike for me.

Rhode Island does produce more than just crooks, though at the moment I can't think of any good examples. :grin:

It's a model line, not unlike an MGB and an MG Midget -- both are MGs, but they have different monikers for different bodies. The "Hoo Koo E Koo" was the name for a Gary Fisher hardtail mountain bike. It is a good bike and should last you pretty close to forever if you're only riding a handful of times a year.

I've been told that Rhode Island doesn't put pictures on their driver's licenses
because everyone know everyone in the state.
Is that true?

So I showed this thread to the friend I bought the bike from (he works with me) and he thinks that name sounds right. Apparently he had an older Fisher bike and broke the frame, and this frame is the one they sent as a replacement. Certainly for the amount that I ride it's a perfectly fine bike.
