Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Picture Post

I can see that I am going to be addicted to BikeForums. So...let's do the obligatory picture post.

Let me see you! Since I'm so new, I don't have any pics of me on the bike yet, but here is what I normally look like and the second is what I hope to NEVER look like again.

I personally love these posts. But I know what Botto is fully capable of. Look at Chipcom's mutilated image.

Here's a picture of me with my little buddy, my brother's son.



Oh, here I am on my previous crotch rocket.

I'm here because of a stay in the hospital, lucky for me the doctors were a bunch of idiots that didn't know what the hell they were talking about. My motivation now is to become & remain as healthy as possible so that I don't have to deal with those presumptive arrogant pricks. Sorry, don't have any pics handy, besides I'm no GQ model like some of you all.
