    I was called a redneck today!

    So I load my bike into the back of my 1988 Dodge Dakota pickup truck. My homemade bike rack is such that the bike stands up in the air. I am driving along the road towards the trails in my mountain biking shirt.

    A couple of cute girls pull up next to me at the lights in their little convertible and are giggling. They then both shout out at me "REDNECK!!!" as I make my right turn.

    Guys, are we rednecks?

    I'm a roadie too, not just a mountain biker. I always thought of roadies and rednecks like matter and anti-matter - whenever they come into contact, **** happens!

    Did you by chance have a rebel flag longer than your truck bed propped up swinging wildly behind the tailgate?

    I don't think I could ever bring myself to call someone from Canada a redneck. I'm from Georgia & drive a '98 Chevy S10 with a rebel flag on the front & a Dale Jr. (soon to be switched to Mark Martin), Go Army, & Lynyrd Skynyrd sticker on the back. And by standards down here, I'm only averagely southern.

    As a Northerner, I must say, you are a redneck.

    Most people down here consider me only averagely southern because I only have a faint southern drawl, my truck is two-wheel-drive & has a 4 cylinder engine, & I don't like hunting. Also I love mountain biking & kayaking, & have an NRS sticker right next to my Skynyrd one. Points against redneckness down here. To yankees, though, I'm a walkin', talkin', inbred stereotype!

    How many hunting dogs do you travel with and were they in the cab or back?
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    If your idea of a helmet is this haircut, you're a redneck.

    I got called a *** (oh cmon bike forum, jeez) - a bundle of sticks - a **** - by a bunch of homies once, LOL but then again I was riding on the road with a mountain bike and all my gear in the middle of nowhere far from any trails. People like to yell things out windows is my conclusion, because I'm pretty damn cool if I do say so myself and could have probably taken the 3 fatty fratties alone. =P =D

    You live in Ontario...I don't think you can legally be a redneck. Hick maybe, but not redneck.

    I agree with the Dodge / Redneck post. Oh well...

    I rode my mountain bike into town a few weeks ago just because I was bored & could use the exercise. Two guys in a riced out late-80's Honda Civic drove by twice to call me a queer. I proceeded to flip them off each time, & all they did was drive off. People like to think driving a vehicle makes them invincible because they can always just drive off after yelling something. It's very rare that anyone yells or does anything offensive to me if we're stopped near each other or in any situation in which they would have to own up to what they've said. So my conclusion is that people view vehicles the same way as the internet. You can do & say whatever you want & rarely have to own up for it.

    no offense, but your username makes you a redneck by default.

    Firebirds are what they made, when they decided to build a real car from the Camaro platform.

    I really liked the fourth gen 'birds, with the aero nose. Was a lot better than the bug eyed fourth gen Camaros.
