If you're gonna move that slowly on the freeway it helps to put your "flashers" on.

He seems to be sitting very gingerly in in that seat.

Plus, I bet he would have sucked his gut in a little more, if he had known his picture would be published worldwide and seen by tens of millions of people. I bet his friends and family are having a field day with this.

Maybe this incident will finally convince the guy to go clean and sober, but I doubt it.

Given that he was riding his bike down the 101, being naked was probably the least crazy thing he was doing.

I have no problem with people riding naked, but they shouldn't do it on the freeway.

For real!
If that had been me, I wouldn't need to "ride gingerly" because all of my outward bits would be fighting their way to becoming inwards bits...

It almost seems like something a person might do if he was sleep walking. Are there any documented cases of sleep riding? I know there are some people who have driven in their sleep.

When he told his friends he was going to ride naked on the 101, his friends said to him "At first we thought you were crazy, but now we can see your nuts!"

It looks like he's trying to mix cycling and golf as he brought his putter.

The police finally caught up to the guy and asked him why he was riding a bike naked down the freeway. His response was, "Well, officer, I went to this party out in the suburbs, it was a 'swinger' party which I'd never been to before but I didn't see no swings anywhere. Everyone was drinking and seemed to be having a good time. Pretty soon someone said, 'OK everyone take off your clothes' so we all got naked. As soon as everyone had their clothes off, someone turned off the lights and said, 'OK, let's go to town.' I don't know where everyone else is, so I guess I'm the first one here."

He was located later in San Jose walking with only a shirt on. Police intervened -determined likely in a 'mental crisis' and taken to hospital for evaluation.
