985: Sprayed.

[Although I have recently seen this I also recall experiencing it as a young lad. It was a trend for awhile back then to have bicycles without fenders. That was very cool...until you had to ride it somewhere in the rain. But, of course, fashion over function held sway.]

reminds me of my old bike and the time we got lost at the big dipper, a muddy terrain.
