Everybody stops and waits when President Obama rolls through.

Maybe he got in a crash, had to replace the fork, and couldn't afford a suspension fork?

Ah the stigma of the replacement fork...

I had Switchblades on my MTB in the eighties. They were not carbon. It's cool to see these ancient products still in production. Yes mine were installed to address issues resulting from a front end collision. It was the previous owner who had crashed the bike though, a fact he neglected to tell me when he sold me the bike. He's still a friend but I trust him about as far as I can throw him.

The images of Obama's limo reminded me of this image I saw on HelpFeedtheTroll...

Image deleted for racist connotation.

Accidentally snagged this picture on my phone. I think it's pretty cool. My leg is not blurry (as it's not moving) but the ground is (moving in relation to me).

It appears that racism is alive and well. And posting a joke about it does not mitigate your involvement nor blur the reality of your mindset.

Assuming the thread was quoted for the responses and not for the ignorant first post.

"Mr. President"

"Checkmate"

But we should leave the politics in P&R. Where racist comments often go unchallenged by the way.

I deleted the picture because in my preoccupied mind (it's the Jewish new year tonight), I forgot about how racist it was.

Maybe I misinterpreted Alpadog's post. But I agree, this stuff should go elsewhere at any rate. Then there would be nothing to misunderstand, etc. In addition, one should always consider stating one's point in an overt manner, thereby minimizing any cause for "confusion".

Decided I needed to post a pic of my ridiculous tan line from my cycling shorts.

This is not what I imagined. I pictured thousands of people lining the streets with American flags. I'm disappointed.
What I see are two people sending emails and a guy with the sh1ts because he had to stop and wait.

Wow. Granted, I don't follow all the comments on this thread so I really don't know what happened, so I have no comment on whatever was the matter. But I will miss him too. He has replied to many of my inquiries and has so many great experiences to share. qmsdc1, if you are reading this, you will be missed.

The person with 5000+ posts was banned for one post that some-but-one found offensive?

Political correctness is taking over the American Constitution, which proclaims the freedom of speach...

I have one interesting fact - there was a swedish childrens books author - Astrid Lindgren and she wrote over 70 books and one of them "Karlsson on the roof"
"
Karlsson is a very short, very portly and overconfident man who lives on the roof of a very ordinary apartment building, on a very ordinary street in Stockholm. When Karlsson pushes a button on his stomach it starts a clever little motor with a propeller on his back allowing him to fly. Karlsson is the best at everything, at least according to himself. But there is, in fact, one thing at which he excels: being a playmate to a young boy named Lillebror (little brother) who lives in this house with his family....
"

This book is banned in USA ( banned in many libraries, not recomennded for private reading, because, Karlsson was suspecting inculcating "subversive views on babysitters."

It is in the country where thousands of new violent computer games released every year, propaganding the war with other countries and nations...

Am I far away from what happenned here ..Actually not - it is called double standards, and on one hand the messages like this can go unnoticed "Bent over Vladimir Putin and valslava" - it is OK, because it is somebody's else's president... but you can't even mention the word black in almost innocent joke...

Sad.
