I ate three hardboiled eggs on the way home today and am thinking not to do that again due to it limiting my hands, needed for steering, and hurting concentration, but I pipe I can manage. However, I wouldn't even try it on a bicycle or motor cycle.
That's an interesting point about the bedroll angled down around the wheel of the bicycle. Either, its ready to hoist on the train, or it is somehow rigged to angle out away from the wheel. A pipe seems a perilous item to have in your mouth as you roll along, or worse motor along, from the perspective of your teeth or the roof of your mouth, let alone your brain cavity. I think a pipe is good to take a long for when you get to the destination.
There's an older fella in my neighborhood I occasionally see riding his bike while smoking a pipe. He has a relaxed pace while he is riding. I tried smoking my pipe while riding my old beach cruiser. I had a wind cap on my pipe but I found that I was distracted from my smoking and didn't enjoy it as much as relaxing in my backyard.
@jaytex I had a Valkyrie years ago (1999, bought it new). Was my favorite of all my bikes. Being a big guy (6-5 @300 lbs) it was the only bike I even felt comfortable on. Great ride, balance/handling (for a cruiser), and plenty of power.
