    Servus!

    Had to get in on this one....

    55. The last time I went riding and some other rider rode very close in front of me I had no uncontrollable urge to follow him for twenty miles to shoot him! In fact, I was quite happy to draft him for awhile.

    56. "Low fuel prices" means bananas were on sale at the grocery store.

    57. Traffic jam? What's that...

    58. No state requrement to have liability insurance for your bike.

    59. Never again having to worry about finding a parking spot.
    Figured I would come back to RF cause I don't get enough ***** about being overweight anywhere else...

    60. One actually notices and enjoys the hills on a bike.

    61. You would never meet a wild man like Chris L while driving a car, at least, you wouldn't get to talk to him!

    It's true. I grow fangs and hair all over...

    47. If I drive, I enjoy it less, but the trip is shorter, which helps a little.

    48. If I cycle, I enjoy it more and the trip is longer, which helps a lot.

    49. If I walk, the trip is even longer and I still enjoy it,
    until I get home an hour late, then the enjoyment vanishes.

    62. GUYS dig scars--in the right places--and if there's a good biking story behind it.

    Sigh... My only good scar is from having 1/3 of my stomach removed. But I guess I could always claim it was from a handlebar that had lost the little protective thingie from the end.

    Is the left knee a good place to have scars? I've got two there. I hope they don't decide to dig them though, that would be painful.

    63. Motoring primates can't sneak up on me as easily as I can sneak up on them.

    64. I can also sneak up on cats, dogs, squirrels and **** sapiens. Gives me a feeling of power (and some guilt).

    65. I can't seem to sneak up on other cyclists.
    :confused:

    66. I hate sneaking up on red lights (a motoring primate advantage).

    It's perhaps these two differences between bikes and cars that really make cars appear evil.

    If man wages war with nature, who do you think will win?

    67. Cars are eating up our island planet faster than anything else in human history. I am beginning to thank God that there is a limited supply of oil...

    Nature ALWAYS wins. It's mankind's greatest folly to think that "domination" of nature is possible.

    Re: 67--I'm really not a mean-spirited person, but I have this fantasy of the last barrel of oil being used up in my lifetime, and somehow celebrating.

    Re: 68--It makes me want to weep when I see vast tracts where affordable housing stood as recently as a year or two ago in this city, now turned into paved parking lots for chain stores. Low-income inhabitants uprooted; the environment dealt another body-blow. Government at work.

    Re:69--Yes!

    Surely that was a piece of sarcasm. My LBS has got frames in all sorts of weird spanky colours (some of which I wouldn't be seen dead in).

    Sorry for the double posting. No, i wasn't really being sarcastic. although, sarcasm is a hobby of mine. What i meant was that most models of bikes aren't offered with a choice of colors. My bike for instance, a Bianchi BaSS, was only made in a bright apple green color. i couldn't have gotten it in another color. i think that a bike shop employee might laugh if i asked "What other colors does this bike come in?" Sure if you buy a custom made bike you can have a choice of colors, but those make up a small percentage of bikes sold.

    Cars on the other hand come in a myriad of colors. even with the cheapest car i can think of you have a choice of colors.

    This must be because cars are all about style while bikes are about substance.
