    I was nearly run over...

    ...by a drunk, salmon-riding, helmetless Critical Masser, who was listening to his iPod whilst brandishing a bicycle stink face and wearing culturally-implicating clothing.

    Was he also texting while riding no-hands on his brakeless fixie? Were you in Amsterdam for this encounter?

    Half of those fools don't even have batteries in their iPods. They're too self-aggrandizing to notice that noise in their ears is only the wind howling through their heads. The other iPod-less half notices but doesn't care.

    As a matter of fact, I was hovering in the air at that particular moment.

    It was your fault. Everyone knows that salmon riders also hug the gutter. Next time take the lane properly and you won't have any problems.

    A&S Theory of Forum Discussion:

    If discussing a motorist-vs.-cyclist incident as relayed by another cyclist or the media, the motorist is always at fault.
    If discussing a motorist-vs.-cyclist incident with the cyclist victim, blame the cyclist for not being competent enough.
    If discussing a motorist-vs.-cyclist incident with a motorist, ban motorist from the forum, preferably before they even say anything.

    salmon riding?

    what does salmon riding mean? Critical mass is a big group of cycists that all go out riding in the same place at the same time. Is that right? (no such thing near where I live)

    Too bad it was a dude Kurt. If a chick happens to do the same thing next week, get her number for me, sounds like fun. Miami is not that far. I'll drew up a ninja fixie as a peace offering to her.

    I will, but remember - this thread was a joke in the first place. Look at the recent thread titles, then look at my rider description

    Oh no worries on that... I may only have a few posts here, but I have thousands on other forums, I know the deal! I don't even want to know how many hours I've spent in this blasted place since I signed up. It is probably bordering on solid weeks around the clock as I have no job, I am a serious research junky, and when I find a new interest I spend almost all of my time cramming my brain with info on it. I've read all of those posts in entirety... the updates to them, and a good majority of posts from quite a few pages back, just on this section alone. I don't want to mention VC, C&V, Mechanics, Commuting, Cyclocross, EL&G, and so on, plus searches for hours!!!

    I was just saying, hypothetically, if you get hit by one of those heathenous types of people... hook me up! hahaha
