Hey, everybody, Frankie Fixed here. Just registered. I ride a Bianchi track bike up here along the Connecticut River. I live in Vermont and commute 25 miles to my job in New Hampshire. Look forward to conversing with all you sane people. Here's my most recent bike adventure. Last summer I got sprayed by a high school kid hanging out of the back window of a Neon with a Super Squirter. It felt good on a hot day, but I really am offended by the disrespect.
Well, I kept pedaling along and, sure enough, the Neon got stalled in the perpetual traffic jam in front of the local K-Mart about two miles down the road. As I approached, I saw that my assailant had left her window down. I got to the car just as the front of the pack was starting to move, whipped out my trusty water bottle and...you know what a heavy stream you can get when you squeeze a really full water bottle? Yeah, I doused her. I rode on, much faster than the car could creep and her screams followed me for a quarter mile.
I don't get it. She was laughing when I got wet.
Frankie

I'm afraid that I'm the only sane one here. Uh, with the exception of you now. Loved the story. You should retype it in one of the forums that many more people look at.

G'Day Frankie Fixed, I can relate to that sort of crap, many years ago I was amongst a herd of blokes, we were doing our Sunday Morning ride to the Tamborine Mountains, Gold Coast, Queensland, OZ, round trip about 150 kilometres. As we got down the road towards the turn off, a Combi with two morons came by and hit all the outside blokes with beer, it's sticky sh*t when you don't need it. Anyway just down the road the traffic had stopped because of an accident, yes the two morons were oblivious of our approach but crapped them selves when we all dismounted and proceeded to rock the Combi side to side until it almost tipped over. The car sitting behind them had witnessed the beer spraying and said good on yer boys that'll teach em? They were long hairs well they dressed scruffy anyway. I can guarantee they would think twice before pulling that stunt again. The look of terror on their faces was a real picture, result cyclists one, morons nil? keep the wheels turning, don't look back? Daotenac.
