Who have you actually met from BF?

I speak to Hi565 on AIM on a regualr basis (cool guy!!), and I met Dante Sarveroni when I gave him an old frame I had laying around....another really cool guy (he liked my bike and didn't even make fun of my triple ).

Cheers,

Brian

I'd rather not make any contact with BF'ers, they might be stalkers.

I've ridden (go figure! it's BIKEforums...!) with a few folks. CPcyclist, CPclydesdale, craign04, and recursive in the hills west of Madison. Hipcycler in the Kettle Morraine. And a couple of times with psimet2001 closer to home in Elgin.

They's all good people.

... Well... Hip's good people, but that whole Knave thing... all we did was flinch at phantoms the whole time!

It is so wierd, I live in Japan but while on holidays in Australia in December I met Tomity. I was at a criterium there and a friend asked me if I saw the Japanese pro rider making presentations to the winners. I said no and sat there wondering who he would be talking about. A few minutes passed and I asked my friend if the guy was a keirin rider and he said yes. I went in search and low and behold it was him.
Very very nice and special person. Loved by many professional and amateur riders world-wide. I consider myself very lucky.
Big Ups for Tomity.
Steve.

Let's see... I've met dog hair, Extort, 1955, Nosra451, OC Roadie, Pico, worker4youth, The Fixer, and my58vw. All because of the Apple Pie century organized here on BikeForums. I've been in PM contact with several other members.

I've met Koffee, DC Emily, Nick Carraway and Higherground. I was gonna meet Superdex, but he met a bridesmaid and that was that. I'm married to Bibi (does that count as meeting), who's ridden with a whole crew of BF'ers including Kirke and Mirona.

And where is Kirke anyway?

Way way too many to count. I'm guessing I've met and ridden with at least 100 people on here, if not more...

I've met and/or ridden with several dozen folks from BF. Though generally considered the red-headed stepchild of BikeForums, the SS/FG board generally has much more 'community' than the others, and rides/meets are frequent.

That's why I am rarely in here

But even this thread has something to do with bikes and riding, which is why I joined BF.

Cheers,
