What makes you think he could ride a bicycle even with two legs, let alone one?

Me thinks you didn't even read the article. The dude was on a motorcycle.

Me thinks you are more wrong then you thinks I am. I did read the article and he clearly was on a motorcycle. Hence, why would the OP think he would be any good at riding a bicycle? See, the "Tour de France" is a race for bicycles, not motorcycles.

Also, it's hard to ride in the Tour de France with one leg.

I am thinking it was posted as a joke. I wonder if his sense of humor got cut off with his leg. Mine didn't.

I guess I made up the title as an excuse to post a funky article here.

Lighten up, Francis.

You just made the list, buddy. Also, I don't like no one touching my stuff. So just keep your meathooks off. If I catch any of you guys in my stuff... I'll cry [edited for content]

And I don't like nobody touching me. [ok, this part is clearly a lie.]

I'm sure it's been mentioned by now, but It's odd BF would let you pick your user name but then censor it when people try to quote you. It makes it look like a vulgar username. After I posted I saw the "*******" and thought: "wait, what did I just call him?!"

"He felt excruciating pain, but did not notice that his right leg was missing until he stopped at the next junction, the paper quoted local police as saying."

Yeah, I noticed the asterisks started showing up with the latest software upgrade a few weeks back, a little while after I registered, so I wonder if there were complaints about my user name or something. I've always kinda regretted choosing it but the 50 other usernames I tried first were all taken, so I guess I'm stuck with it. I'm always worrying that it offends people.

So he didn't have to shift it in the 1.2 miles without a leg? Trying to shift without a leg FTW.

Right leg operates the rear-brake. Even more useless on a motorcycle than on a bicycle.
