I suppose this is a little off shoot from the "anti social" thread. There's this guy in town who obviously places a lot of emphasis and money on "looking good". I know for myself, I can rely on my youthful looks and invigorating charm. However, this bloke is so shallow and self centred it would amaze me if he didn't have a mail order bride to caress his ego.
I first ran into this guy a few weeks ago. I went out for a ride through the country lanes to enjoy the scenery and enjoy the ride. On my way back I saw this guy on his road bike... he was all kitted up in his team w@Nker gear. I waved... no acknowledgement. Fine, I keep going. About 1km later I turn around and here's Mr Smooth trying to close the gap. His bike looks expensive and he's got the Giro hat on, so there's no doubt he's spent some decent loot on his kit.
I'm on my MTB and decided to up the cadence a bit. I was a bit suprised when the gap closure rate seemed to slow and I actually made it back in to town and he was still about 100 metres behind me.
Well. The next day I'm out on my early morning ride and the same bloke is now wearing a different coloured "team w@Nker" shirt and a different coloured Giro hat. I take a second look and sure it's him. I wave to make sure. Same dead pan stare straight ahead. Yup, that's the same looser.
Well, I've seen this clown about nine times now and I reckon he's got six top line Giro lids and about seven diffent "team w@Nker" outfits... which makes me wonder why anyone would go to such trouble to put all that dross on for a thirty minute ride.
Anyway, (we're getting to closure here fellas) I saw him this morning and nearly fell of my bike laughing. Apart from the several thousand dollars he's spent on "kit w@Nker" he has now topped it off with these crass looking eye protector gizmos. They look a bit like swimming goggles but slightly smaller. Sh1t, I almost had to get off the bike to get over my laughter. The statement he seems to be trying to make is "I drive so hard and fast, that if I don't wear these insect goggles, my eyes will fill up with little critters". I really, really wish I had a pic for you all to enjoy.
