Thought I'd share this with the board...

Picture this:

I'm in the garage, doing a little maintenance on the bikes and my oldest of three boys (14 years old)comments on the Brooks B-17 in honey that has about 20,000 miles on it. "Dad, that saddle is almost black!" I told him, "it does have a lot of hard, sweaty miles on it but that, maybe someday, I'll retire it and you can hang it on the wall in the family room". He said, "Uh Dad,...um,...that's thousands of miles of butt sweat...Gross!"

I got a good laugh out of that one! I guess he has a point!
