I was just waiting for him to burst his melon. At least wear a helmet. Geeze.

Which helmet? Bicycle helmet at those speeds is useless, and motorcycle helmet might actually throw his balance off. Plus crashing at the speed he is ****ed even with full face motorcycle helmet.

Eh, don't bother with the helmet. Darwin, survival of the fittest, etc.

Hey, i have been doing something like that since the start of the summer. I get into that position only with one foot locked in the pedal. I can glide a long ways and going down hill is a blast. I can balance on either foot. I pick up speed and gain on people who are pedaling. I helps stretch out my hammies and takes the pressure off my rear end. People look at me funny but what do they know.

I have no idea which would be best. It's just that him doing that with a nekkid head scares me.

No worries on this guy. My friend, Bobbi, comments that as long as people are doing wacky things and seem to be nuts - all is right with the world.
She says that when we become bland and unified, when we cry out more for safety and sanity in our lives than all else... that's when makind will have lost it's edge. And THAT is when we have to worry.

So you bungee men, go ahead and jump.
You paragliders and parajumpers, leap into the abyss.
And you moped speedsters, ditch the helmet and fly... fly for all you're worth!

You and your kind prove that man isn't turning into flacid automatons. Not yet, anyway.
