    Any Interesting bike stories

    I guess if anyone wants to post some. heres mine

    I was about to brew beer some weeks ago and got all my stuff together just to find out I was out of propane for my burner. at the last minute I decided to strap the empty tank to the rack of my bike and ride about 2 miles to refill it down a main road in my town. the weight of it being filled bent my rack but the tank got home in one piece and I brewed a nice pale ale. everyone who saw me either looked confused or nervous.

    Got sideswiped by a pizza man not using a turn signal. Not a fun experience.

    Today, I waited for a car to pass a stop sign at a marked crosswalk, proceeded across the street, and was nearly run over by another car who (from a complete stop next to the curb) ran the stop sign as I was crossing. If I was on foot, I would've been dead.
    Later, after cruising for several blocks on a steady line at a steady speed on the right side of the road, I hear screeching brakes and blaring horns behind me. I can't believe people sometimes.

    About a month ago I was riding really fast(like 25mph probably) with no hands on a skinny road with crap pavement, front wheel slipped off the pavement onto the gravel. I flew off my bike and landed hard on my right shoulder, rolled over and skid on the back/top of my head for 3-4 ft. The x-ray of my clavicle looked like a very loose skein of yarn.

    A couple of days ago I was cruising the wrong way down a one way road with no brake and no helmet (F that S!) When out of nowhere, 5-0 came screaming down the street, lights blaring. Instead of being a wuss and pulling over to let the cop by, I sped up, heading straight for him. When he was about 5 feet away, I pulled up and busted the most epic bunny hop triple bar spin OVER the cop car, straight into a wheelie skid the whole way down the rest of the street.

    We were on tour.. 3 cycling buddies on a sag tour of the desert.. All our riders stuff was carried on a sag wagon... there were about 30 on tour.. so we arrived at the camp site.. The sag truck was parked atop a hill...
    .Proud to say one of my bike buddies turned out to be the tour's "Captain America." While most of the riders were chicken little... .. Well, the truck's brakes either failed or else the emergency brakes were not successfully applied..The truck rolled down the hill heading towards the camp's office building. Luckily all the screaming resulted in the tents and people downstream to move out of the way... . / So my bike buddy became our hero.. He run up to the truck , boarded it and stopped the truck from rolling downhill any further.. My cycling bud received a free tour as a result of his bravery.. As all ran out of the way of a moving truck , he jumped aboard.. Had he not , it likely would have ran smack into a building . Total damage, one tent was run over with no one inside..

    I would have been terrified. What if you fell? What are you brewing?

    I road with one hand on the tank and the other on the bars. I had to skid once because some ass was turning without looking but all went fine. It was very nerve racking but it was worth it. I brew all kinds of styles of beer pale ales, stous, porters, ect...

    Stopped at on red at a big intersection to the right, which were technically parking spots. This d0uchebag decided to pull up right behind me honking, then opening his car door yelling at me to move off the road just so he can make a right turn at red, technically not even a lane. I ignore him and he starts yelling who the *** do you think you are?! so I ask him the same question and start to educate him on rules of traffic and define a "car lane" to him. He proceeded with his fat body and d0uche-stache glasses face into his metal coffin and drove back into the correct lane on green, acting tough trying to swipe me with his side.
    This world could use fewer oversized d0uches with an inferiority complex.

    Wow, the guy listened to you? I wouldn't even get close to those fools because they just want to get some stress out. But then you won't know what tick em off either. Sometimes stay away and ignoring tick em off.

    In Tokyo, people readily ILLEGALLY park vehicles on the side of the road on heavy traffic narrow roads (especially around convenience stores) ... yes even huge trucks. They do this wherever they please, like right at the curve of cross-sections.

    Last year, at a busy cross-section, I side-swiped a mini-truck's side mirror a bit, because car behind me was a huge truck and a chain of cars following so I gotta get out of way. Then the driver who parked the mini-truck illegally to buy his cup of coffee decided to give me a chase with his bimbo-box. He chased me for a few blocks with never ending tirades. Sorta like a popped shaken coke can. ... he never listened to my explanation that he was parking illegally. ... (And all this in the presence of law enforcement)

    ... So now I yield to cars ... so I can dominate the road after they are gone.

    Once, I rode my bike very far. I was tired.

    Another time, I rode my bike really hard. I was tired.

    One time, I rode my bike very far AND really hard. Oh boy was I tired.
