    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.

    is that what you might call 'Rust in peace'?

    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.;)

    I read this article (in Swedish) a few years ago!

    It's how I'd like to go; totally shattered. :rolleyes:
    But I'm not in a hurry; I have to find out the meaning of life first. ;)

    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...
