not as annoying as a few days later he shows me pictures of a younger, fitter him on the two custom built bob jackson road bikes and the bob jackson track bike he just GAVE AWAY. 'they were in really good condition but they needed tires and such...' we are the same size give or take a 1/2 inch and a 60yr old beer belly. they would have been perfect for me.
i am still haunted by this.
Brrr - truly chilly.

My non bike horror story. A coworker said he'd give me his 64 Bonneville convertible with HO engine and white leather (maybe he was kidding) because he was joining the military. When I called about it his mom had already gotten rid of it.
