    Do you call other BFers?

    Or do they call you? It's so cool to talk rather than type. Especially if they have the same plan as me!

    I'm quite close to a group of forumites from another bicycle forum - and have been "typing" for the last several years and have now made the jump to calling/texting. And visiting each other. Have met several and actually have a guy coming in from Colorado in a couple weeks, as soon as he leaves - I'm packing my bike up and traveling to where a bunch of forumites are meeting up to watch one of our members do a Tri. Fun to meet up!!!!!!

    edit: hehe in fact I just talked with one now about the end of TdF.

    A bit of each.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Why not? Jon and I switched numbers so we can ride.

    Mich and I got each other's numbers so we can tell each other off without typing so much.

    The others we exchanged just so we can....talk!

    Oh rlly?

    You may be faster but...... well.... At least my UMB(note I said umb) is all the colors of the rainbow. I'm so popular now. I get tons of people callin' to me.

    "Hey big boy".

    "Why don't you come on over and let me check out your wheelset".

    I just figure they are really into bikes. Either that or they admire the superior craftmanship of Giant made CF frames. *shrugs*

    Nah, Siu's easy to catch. You just have to bait the trap with Haagan-Dazs pistachio ice cream. I thought everyone knew that.



    And I only talk on the phone to certain select few. Everyone else has had the good sense not to give me their phone numbers.

    ( I am not a phone person. I occasionally (2-3 times max/week) speak to my gf, but that's different. We have stuff we need to talk about from time to time, about stuff and such.

    Well, I figure if I post something people can ignore me if they choose - if they talk to me and ignore, I might notice... After all, I probably am not doing anything different than most people...
