    I need to get some other photo ID. They always ask me if I have a drivers license, and I have learned the hard way not to lie to the boys in blue.

    I have always taken care of the demerit crap before paying the fine. As long as you have the ticket/infraction # you should be able to take care of it after the fact. Never done it myself tho.

    I never lie, I just leave it at home when riding. I bring my OHIP card, and tell them my name is Operator of Richmond Hill FTW!!!

    Well, even though I posted it, I have to bail on CV tonight. Sometimes there are days at work when nothing goes as planned. I'll probably be out here in Mississauga till 9. Fack.

    So not so bad then in the realm of extreme sports. He could have done himself in with a skull bongo, as opposed to his face plant on the tranny. I've knocked myself out a couple times comin' in fakie on a vert ramp.

    1-2 per year for as long as I have been commuting. I probably run a stop sign 5000+ times a year.

    They have signs that say stop? Seriously though I don't know if you'll be able to get the old ones recovered, going years back could prove most difficult for the rusty bureaucracy.

    The last time I had this problem was during Bike Week last year (I love how they have their little "crackdowns" when people who normally don't ride get pulled over and whacked with a stupid ticket) I got stopped for the stop sign run. The officer asked me for I.D. I gave her my UCI racing license. In pulling said I.D. from my wallet she spied my Driver's license. She asked for the D.L. for I.D. I refused and replied that I did not really want to spend several hours of my time straightening out the demerit fiasco that was sure to follow. She assured me up and down that this would shurely not happen....yeah right. Sure enough a few weeks later I got my obligatory demerit deduction notice in the mail. ASSCLOWNS!!. I think that withholding a drivers license in lieu of other forms of I.D. is not lying to the cops but rather just trying to avoid an un-necessary hassle. Altho I guess a night in the drunk tank for failing to obey a peace officer is also a hassle.

    As much as I would love to Steeker, I have a lovely nine year old that Daddy needs to tuck in before she goes to sleep. Then a few hours of hangin' with my lovely wife. I do, however swear I shall make one of these rides soon. As it is I am completely unprepared, for night riding. No lights, no.... um... ah, well it's kinda.... jees, you know.

    Asian alcohol eh? I was drinking at a buddy's place a number of years ago and he had this bottle of Chinese booze. There was not a lick of English on the label but it had a gutted lizard fermenting in the bottle. We called it "Lizard Juice" We drank it but then worried that the label might say something like "for decoration only"
    I was at a chinese feast last night. I don't know what half the stuff we had was, but what I thought was a mushroom turned out to be abalone and what looked like little noodles turned out to be shark fin! I also had the lizard juice and I'm pretty sure we called it the same thing.

    On another note: I switched my chainring from a 48 to a 43 and wheeee! still haven't isolated that damn creak though... I think it must be the rear wheel...
