    But that's not what I'm trying to say. The question (should we allow bikes on Metro) is being asked, and I think we should look at data, not just limited experience, in forming an answer.

    You seem intent in reading anything I type in the worst (to you) possible light. It's been going on for years.

    Sure, couldn't possibly be a legitimate difference of opinion on a policy issue, must be personal.

    Do you have a problem with a pilot to allow bikes on at all times on Fridays?
