Nice... So it's a leather beer growler carrier for bikes? Looks pretty nice with those straps and seat mount configuration. Might have to ride extra smooth or you might end up with a mess when opening on site ;)

Guess who got a speeding ticket yesterday... Yeah, this guy. Probably don't need any other citations ;)

Was totally a bummer, speed trap... There's a hill just at the edge of town with a speed limit sign half way down. I was accelerating as I approached the hill and a police officer who was driving in the other direction did a u-turn and cited me for traveling at the higher speed before I had passed the sign :(

That's nuts. You must have been booking' it! How far over the limit did he have you? If you had the growler holder, you could have just offered him some beer.

Or better yet, fill it with oil and use it as a Bond car oil slick to shake the cops.

You should frame the ticket. I haven't seen a cyclist get pulled by the cops for speeding.

Ha! I was in my car Chandlee, visiting my Grandpa and helping with some errands. I was exiting a 40mph zone and entering a 50. He said I was going 56... which seems high based on my spedometer, but I was definitely accelerating up to the sign and was in the 50 range. So the ticket was for 16 over since I was technically in the 40 (the last 100 feet of the 40). Bittermuch? I'm trying to just forget about it, sent the money in etc. it was my first speeding ticket ever.

But yes, I've been pulled over on my bike for not fully stopping at stop signs as well. Seems like there may be better ways to spend time as an officer but hey, don't want to rant here ;)
