Purchased somewhere here in Toronto.
Crocheted wire stuff....I don't know if it translates to BF too easily, but buying some for a significant other could get one more off time for riding I do have a crocheted ring in silver that's kinda cool.

He already has enough chaffing problems, don't give him any ideas.

He had some really bad rash (for like the millionth time in his career) and used this stuff. he absolutely swears by it. Quick healing with virtually no scar to speak of. Oh wait.....yer a tough guy..you want the scars. As you were.
It was totally brought on by my own stupidity (I "know" better, but I certainly should have known better then). I normally don't skid at all, just skips. When I do that, I unweight the wheel a bit, skip, do a half pedal rotation, skip, etc. That time I did a few things wrong: pulled a skid w/out moving forward at all or even unweighting a little bit (which put waaay too much strain on the pedal) and started a full-on skid w/ my hand on the brake (just because I wasn't thinking). So ya, there's not much else that could have happened in that situation since I really set myself up for it.

Thanks for the tip w/ the road rash. It's not even worthy of being called that, as it's basically a 1-inch boo boo. I scrubbed it last night to get all the crap out and lathered it up w/ Polysporin. All is good.
