    I want to be cremated.
    I'll leave enough money so that my cycling friends who are left can treat themselves to a frame re-spray.
    I'll have my ashes ground down to dust and incorporated into their choice of colour and then be sprayed onto their bikes. This way I can still go cycling with friends even when I'm dead.

    All this talk of death; my brother rang me yesterday to tell me a not so old (46) friend whom we both used to play rugby with had a heart attack and died after a golf day. Makes you think. The irony is, he collapsed as he was drinking a toast to another two ex-members of the club who had both died recently, one of them in the Paddy's bar bombing in Bali. ;) I'm told it's the mid 40's when your peers start popping off. Selfishly, I hope I'm not amongst them. Yet.

    Why bother with the paint bit? Why not just tip some of the ashes down the seat tube...?

    I've already decided - 'I ain't dying, not for no one, not any time!'

    Not quite the irony I had in mind (I suspect he would have preferred at that point not to have "wood" either) but it works for me.;)

    Oh! I'm 48 - does that mean I'm on borrowed time? ;)

    No, 42 is the answer. You have to work out the question though, that never got sorted out, thanks to the Vogons...
