  1. I think he could have gone further if the cart was released before ignition. Pretty funny. I’ll have to get one for my next hill climb.

  2. …we know boonen likes “coke”…wasn’t he using one of those bikes during the spring classics ???…

    …that’s a great fun video…love the twisted minds that dream up this kinda stuff…

  3. You know, all of the money spent on that kind of ‘project’ could have been used to better the world or improve the conditions of someone’s miserable life. Why we are still doing bullshit like this, I do not understand. Stupid. Really stupid.

  4. …because sometimes plain ol’ fashioned humor does in fact improve the quality of life for people…that is not simply my opinion but a recorded fact…

    …a smile on even one face is worth a million sourpusses…that may not be a recorded fact but it is my fucking opinion…

    …consider the budget for this ‘project’ & then consider how much dinero is spent for drugs per day in any city of your choice…

    …once you get off your high fucking horse, i’ll be waiting patiently for your answer…

    …just sayin’…

  5. …well, thank you, jte…but i’m not really suited to be president of anything other than the small republic of “bikesgonewildia” which has a basic policy of only allowing attractive women within it’s borders…

    …once they get a “bgw” stamp on their passport, they’re usually allowed back in if they ‘feel the need’ to visit…

  6. Bikesgonewild and Col sanders retired –

    you two, particularly, have done your best to render my serious posts into nonsense, as though the end all and be all of this forum is to just be full of shit. I don’t give a fuck what you two are about, and frankly, I can presume it’s probably not a noble cause nor do you exist for the betterment of the world. I do. I care, and I want to see this world a better place. If you got a problem with that, fuck right off.

    Obviously you haven’t traveled enough, or if you have, you’ve been able to ‘block out’ the poverty and suffering existing in places where brown people live. Maybe you don’t have feelings for the downtrodden or the have-nots. Well, I do. Maybe you don’t give a shit that they burn the styrofoam plates after feeding greedy gringos in Guatemala. I do. It makes me angry.

    I’m going to ask ONE THING – for you to leave my posts alone, stop making fucked up comments about what I write, and if you don’t like my high horse, fuck you. It takes balls to get up and mount this horse, and you with your contrary words, and your diffusing of my activism into commentary about nonsense, can take a flying leap. I’m straight sick of it and I seriously want you to fucking retire for real.

  7. Oops LJ,

    There are a few local terms for that, ‘throwing your toys out of the cot’ & ‘spitting the dummy’.

    First off, you’re obviously a sincere individual who cares & I respect that.

    However, this is a public forum & anything that you post up here is fair game, if you’re prepared to post be prepared for the proverbial ‘slings & arrows’.

    Two of the most passionate & dedicated environmentalists that I knew in South Africa drove around in an old VW covered in stickers like ’I club seals’ & ‘save the whales, harpoon a fat chick’ because they got it, they didn’t preach to people, they didn’t talk down to people, they spoke with people, respected opinions & invited them to join them, generally turned out to be a laugh fest, I’ve seen some serious rednecks get involved & having the time of their lives.

    They just quietly, (okay not so quietly), walked the walk & talked the talk.

    Talk with me, reason with me, laugh with me, invite me to join you, just don’t leap up on a soap box & preach down to me.

    If you pick up from all the posts, all the regulars here are concerned, caring people, some are just a bit more ‘gruffly’ concerned than others.

    BGW & Electric Joe have probably worn out more bicycle tires than I’ve had hot dinners, the juries still out on the Colonel but I suspect that he’s an honorable man, just gets chain grease on that white suit.

    Gives me hope for my old age.

    Which should be happening round about…

    NOW!

    Shit, didn’t see that coming, ooh, comfy slippers & hot chocolate, now if only I could find that picture that Judi posted…

    Take a few deep breaths & take care.

  8. …three words, littlejar…

    …”not fucking likely“…

    ‘not fucking likely’ am i gonna be told by you where or when to post or not post…

    ‘not fucking likely’ you ever really paid attention to what i’ve said when i am being serious…

    ‘not fucking likely’ that get my humor when i’m joking…

    ‘not fucking likely’ you’d know how to distinguish between the two…

    ‘not fucking likely’ that standing on a soapbox screaming vitriol at the world sways anybody to your point of view…

    ‘not fucking likely’ that you are more concerned about the state of the world than a lotta folks who just have a better handle on their emotions…

    ‘not fucking likely’ that you paid attention when about 18 other people told you the same fucking thing regarding your last number of posts…

    ‘not fucking likely’ that i’m gonna soft pedal just because you think you’ve got a case against one or two of us individuals…

    ‘not fucking likely’ that i don’t wanna see a better world…

    ‘not fucking likely’ i’ll stop working to achieve that in my own ways just because you think you’ve got the only fucking way…

    ‘not fucking likely’ that you’re not one of the most self righteous motherfuckers i’ve ever encountered despite my using a double negative to express that fact…

    …’not fucking likely‘ do you really ‘get’ the picture…

  9. lj, with that little rant you just made sure that no future post of yours gets taken seriously. You didn’t have siblings did you?

    I smell blood in the water…

  10. You’d think that with a name like “Drunkcyclist”, folks would have enough common sense to not take anything in here too seriously.

  11. That quip about Academia just popped in to my head.

    The emotions run so high cause the stakes are so low.

    Kinda applies here as well.

    Is it too early to start drinking ?

  12. …i’ll be honest, sommerfliesby…i don’t think, even in rereading what i directed @ littlejar, that i’m out of line whatsoever…

    …i didn’t get vindictive…i didn’t throw anything particularly nasty in his direction & the only personal note was in calling him a “self righteous motherfucker”…something i’d have to accuse myself of at times…

    …believe me, it could a’ been a lot worse but i’m not out to destroy the ego of someone i see as trying, even though constantly misguided, to make it worthwhile in this world…
