I puked on a Lexus!!

So, I raced in the Broken Hearts and Bicycle Parts race last night and lost my partner(partner's race) after a bad intersection and a wrong turn. So I decided to finish solo since I couldn't reach him on his cell. So I was about a 1/2 mile from the finish and you have to climb a hill that isn't too steep, its just fairly long. The traffic in the direction I was heading there were like three lanes. I was in the far left lane (holding my lane) when this Lexus comes up behind me and starts honking. I then began to signal that I was about to turn left and the Lexus gets impatient and tries to pass me. So I almost freaked out because they nearly hit me. So as I turn my head to watch out for the car, I threw up all over the hood and windshield. It was great. I actually was laughing and puking at the same time!! I booked the hell out of there and onto a side street. But it was really worth it. I don't know why I puked. I think I may of just pushed myself too hard and had too many beers before the race. It was great though.

It wasn't even really anti-car. I swear, I didn't mean to even puke. Its just complete karma. He was an impatient @$$ and I felt like puking. The timing just happened to be right.

I was actually pretty sober for the race. I just had quite a bit during the whole day and not enough to eat. So I think the beer only diet before a race wasn't good.

This was the most refreshing, feel-so-good puking story in my entire life.

Now that driver will be resentful and hold it against all cyclists till the end of his/her days.

Won't someone think of the car drivers' feelings!?

A couple of years from now we'll have a thread about "where have all the oldtimers gone" or some other ****e like that, and someone will say "remember when James puked on a Lexus?" and we'll be all oldtimers and will remember.

i puked on my first alleycat. too many beers before hand, and i was pulling a looooooooong (but not too steep) hill up to my second to last check-point. i got almost to the top, and i must have been pushing too hard and a bit worn out, and POP goes the puke. i felt much better afterwards, and kept on going.

so rad!

The mental picture of laughing while puking makes me laugh.

And puke.

I vomited on a passing MAX onetime when I lived in portland. Belly full of dumpstered chinese food plus long pull off a bottle of cheap bourbon . I spun around to hurl in the gutter just as the MAX came by. Pretty sure I got like four windows. It almost took my head off though....

Yea it was pretty awesome, you could have done the double header I pulled. Time trial in the morning, alley cat that night.

Pucking on a Lexus is the icing on the cake! (By icing I mean puke and by cake I mean Lexus)

Unfortunately the lexus driver is going to forget about all the honking and will tell the story
that some cyclist just rode up and puked on the car.
