    BFer sighting

    I was tooling up White Rock Creek trail this morning, on my way to work. Coming the other way were two cyclists. We exchanged greetings, but it wasn't until after they passed that I thought, "Hey, that guy with the TX flag on his jersey was All1NTao."

    The other cyclist pulled in behind All1 as I passed, so I didn't get a good look, (plus, I wasn't thinking in terms of actually seeing anyone I might recognize).

    I guess my point is that the "TXBF: You and your ride" sticky is a useful resource, (not sure how to put this info to use, other than another reason to post on the forum).

    And All1NTao, if I had noticed sooner, I'd have given you a shout out.
    That's gonna leave a mark.

    I am in the witness protection program. All photos I've posted proclaiming to be myself are lies and fakes.

    There, I should be safe.

    was wearing mine (the yellow / blue one) at Collin Classic last weekend. I'm debating if I plan to wear it to Italy next weekend.

    I would . You will get instant recognition. When I do a bike tour in Europe, I always ride in my California Republic jersey. As a result, once someone invited us into their home for dinner and another time, local cyclists wanted to talk to us about US cycling and they bought us all drinks.

    I meant Italy, Texas.

    Isn't that pronounced "Ittly???" If I remembered to GET a BF jersey, I'd wear it. At this point (brand-new job + car payments + tuition payments), can I get a discount????

    Fact is, I think (not sure) I'll be heading to Italy Friday night to sleep down there and get an early start. I remember there's a newish truck stop on the highway, but that was a few years ago (#19). Anybody know right off hand if it's still there???

    If you can wear an XL you can have my BF jersey. I'd rather give it to someone who will wear it rather than have just sit in my closet. It is too big for me plus I'm not crazy about the material. Let me know and I'll try to to get it to you before Saturday.

    There are other ways to spot a BFer. Back in February I was on the way home and started trading pulls with another commuter going my way. We talked about our lights and he recognised me as a BFer from what I was saying about my DIY lights.

    Well thanks for the shout out, but that wasn't me. I have been in Boston for the past several days. That doesn't me we won't run into each other sometime, I'll keep an eye out for you
    Abandon the search for truth, settle for a good fantasy.

    A shout out may have garnered some awkward looks, I suppose.

    Just so you know, you might have a doppleganger out on WRCT.
    That's gonna leave a mark.
