    He who laughs last....

    It's only fair that I follow my original post with an update and reality check.

    He threw down the gauntlet, not me.

    The day after my "wheel sucker" adventure, I rode a casual 20 mile ride after work. No problems. Two days after (as tends to be my recovery style) my legs were killing me. I set off for a 40 mile ride on rolling back roads, only to find that after the first 15 miles, my legs cramped up about every 8 to 10 minutes. It was a long ride home, and I wasn't feeling so smug about the events in my post "I didn't throw down the gauntlet, he did". I pretty sure he recovered much quicker and more fully than I have.
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    That's an assumption. And assumptions are the mother of all f***ups.



    If he was puking sick, his body may recover, but his ego won't.

    As long as he was not there to see it you still won
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large
