Mike Watson Gets Bent

Mike Watson, creator of my Rainbow Chopper and many other interesting cycling machines, has built a recumbent. He showed up in my driveway with this beast while we were gathering to head off for our usual HPVOoO Sunday dinner. The handling of this bent is ok once you get going, but the getting-going and stopping-going without teetering over is a bit of a challenge.
