As a native Wisconsinite, I have an eye out for Wisconsin-made bikes. I only have one at the moment, a Trek, but I think if I were to become a 'collector' that would be the focus of my interest.

Ride your white bike after Memorial Day.
When dining, make sure the fork is to the left of your plate.
When riding side by side with a lady, always be on the outside, toward the street.
