    Who do we kick off of the Island?

    Okay, it is time to cast our votes to kick someone off of the island.

    The nominees are:

    BluesDawg - for never winning a mountain bike race
    SaiKaiTai - for his incessant hill riding
    Jet Travis - for changing his identity and vacationing in Indiana
    DnvrFox - for starting all of this - under the principle of first in, first out
    The Weak Link - need I say anything?
    Beverly - for being too nice, nice people never win
    MaddMaxx - for running too many secret contests and his evil avatar
    jppe - for making all of the rest of us look like pikers
    Terrierman - for first proclaiming himself a Fred and then turning his back on Fred-dom. And for his double posts.
    Tom Bombadil - a great guy who doesn't deserve the abuse that he takes
    Digital Gee - just search his backlog of posts, there are over 4000 reasons & for owning a bike that he doesn't deserve.

    Since only 10 choices are allowed, I am combining Beverly & Jet Travis as a dual entry.

    See, Maddmax? Remember--he's from WISCONSIN, not MINNESOTA. Air syphons, cheese horns, voting off the island.... you get the idea.

    In contrast, today I went and biked to see my 92-year old grandma! That's what we do over here...

    solveg - there will be a second contest for whom to throw into the volcano. You are a strong candidate!

    I didn't ride today either but it's a scheduled day off after 5 days of riding. Thursday is an off day, too. It's the end of my 4 x 10 work week and I'm usually too darn tired to ride

    I don't know if I should be relieved or insulted that I'm not on the list.

    I wasn't going to vote, either, Beverly... until Tom threatened to throw me into the volcano.

    I started with a very long list and hated to leave several of the names off.

    Almost didn't post it because I didn't want to insult anyone.

    No reason to take anything as a insult, I just kinda went with my best one-liners.

    Tom Bombadil: for starting this poll. Why, the nerve!!

    Also Mrs. Bombadil, for apparently sending his magic helmet to Goodwill (or the landfill). Truly tragic and unforgiveable.

    I can see the points about DG, except that he provides so much comic relief. So he can stay in spite of his undeserved Roubaix.

    Of course, the famous Groucho line about not wanting to belong to any club that would let him in comes to mind.

    Who's going to start that contest? It doesn't look like you'll be on the island.

    This is the best contest EVER! I used simple logic to rid the island of two pests ... uhhh fellow 50+'ers with one little vote. Oh. Oh my. Uhh Beverly, neither of them were you.... Honest...
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    What about the guy who started Bike Forums, asked for $25 to become a gold/platinum/titanium member, (or whatever the hell that red star thing is), then turns around and sells Bike Forums for a nifty profit...without a twinge of guilt!

    Here's his island!!!

    But before this they will need to perform the Ritual Dance of the Virgins.
    I'm sure the ladies here can remember the steps, even after all this time.

    I voted for Jet Travis. He's an indiot from Indiana. Sorry to mix you up in this Beverly, but I promise to bring a good jug of wine to XOBA.
