Wednesday, July 13, 2005 :::


I haven't owned a bike since my very first Huffy, which was a ten-ton dirt bike with shiny chrome and padded handlebars (that in my experience served no real purpose when you were flying up and over them, head-first onto the pavement, after trying to do a sweet jump over a golf-ball-sized rock).

I told my mom that I wanted to buy a new bike for riding around the lakes, and she reminded me that I still have that old BMX bike in the garage, and it was still in great shape. As if it would be perfectly normal for a thirty-year-old man to grind around the lake on his BMX. The real problem is that I'm way too self-conscious to wear a bike helmet and I'm worried about my well-being. I'm particularly clumsy, and as you can see, it's quite easy for just about anyone to hurt themselves on a bike:

The President

Now that I think about it, nearly every single memory I have of being on a bike involves me falling off of it.

As long as you have more clothes than the nudists and more intellect than the president you'll do just fine.

God - the look on the guy watching Bush bite it is priceless!

BMX'ers are hot studs. Get out your BMX, Dan, and live on, you steed of a man.

I heart the Bushy biting it photo.

so, did the president not see the gate - or just not see the guard in the bright yellow jacket?

ouch - that nudist one leaves me cringing. Imagine scraping your privates or boobs on the cement and getting that huge scrape kids get on their knees? OH the horror. But I LOVE the president one - what an ass.

Maybe you should get your inner ear checked.

Yeah, the gate and guard in front of W are nearly invisible. What a tool.

Dan, I have an extra mountain bike in my garage/ Brent's storage. All yours if you want it...just needs a little tlc.

the nudie crash makes me nauseous.

I could have lived a very happy, fulfilled life without seeing Dubya's ass in the air like that.

Now I have to go scrub my eyes.

dan, don't be an asswad. wear the helmet. because no matter how great you look without one, the pavement will always be harder than your skull.

So is it seriously wrong to laugh at the misfourtune of the people in those pics? I mean "beverage of your choice shooting out your nose" laugh?

The nudies deserve what they get if they fall off their bikes. I mean....puh-leeeeasee.

if you get a helmet like this one, you can kill two birds with one stone and probably use it as a tax write off.

I used to have a purple bmx bike with purple n' white checkered bumper pads all over it. I flew off the handlebars of that thing five times. Some people never learn.
