Everyone has that crazy friend who leads them on adventures both comedic and tragic and often both. Stevil and Robot dig into the dumbest ideas they’ve entertained, and the most entertaining ones too. As always, they get off track, find their way back, and forget what the point of the story was in the first place.
Robot fell in love with cycling watching the older neighborhood kids ride wheelies down the street. It was the early '70s, and Evel Knievel was jumping motorcycles over buses. Everything seemed possible. From that moment, the die was cast (iacta alia est).
He studied philosophy in college, of course he did. That's what idealists do, romantics, kids who think there must be a better way. At the same time, bikes were carrying him everywhere, delivering all of life's gifts and surprises. Occasionally he crashed and didn't mind.
