Caption Contest #76 Winner - Born To Be Wild!

 Congrats to Tim C. for winning the moon minibike caption contest - I hope he'll be able to make it to OSH12 to enjoy his bacon sandwich prize! And as always, thanx to everyone who submitted captions and voted. This will probably be the last contest until after Oshkosh, but we'll pick it up again sometime in August.

 And I'm thinking you'd have to be pretty wild to be riding a NASA minibike in low-g (and zero-g?) conditions in a vomit comet. Especially with that spacesuit on restricting your ability to control the thing. But NASA really did consider the possibility of a minbike on the moon - you can read a little about it in this post: How NASA Didn't Drive on the Moon.

 I love motorcycles, but I think the 4-wheel Lunar Roving Vehicle was the better idea for moon cruisin' : )
