    to the dude in Helen's kit on Main st. in venice last night

    Nice save. You should have seen the look on the face of the chick who doored you.

    Could you explain what happened? If he got doored, why do you say "nice save"?

    Maybe the chick opened the door, the dude hit it with the front wheel, did one perfect flip while staying clipped in, and landed upright and proceeded as if nothing happened?

    door opened, clipped his shoulder or arm, and almost caught him square in the chest. Even he was amazed he didn't go down. Huge bobble, then the save. Another inch and it would have been much worse.

    Good on him! Were any tickets issued? I want every donkey who opens their door into traffic to get the ticket that they so richly deserve.
    May you live long, live strong, and live happy!
