There is so much great material on this board that I thought it might be worthwhile to put together a collection of some of the more noteworthy ones. If you have any favorites, please feel free to add them.

Gator "OK, what's the dumbest thing you have done wrt cycling?" 5/23/02 10:25am

1. BMX glory days. Finally got the nerve to jump this 8' tall monstrosity that someone had built out of plywood and stacked 2x4s. Didn't want to slow down and chicken out, so I just rode up to the field and gunned it. It wasn't until I was 3/4 of the way up the ramp that I noticed my friends wildly trying to wave me off. Ramp collapsed just as I launched and I did an 8' nut-plant onto the
stem. I will NEVER forget that.

2. Rode out to a remote inlet where a bunch or shrimpers and n'er-do-wells hang out. Well, I get there and there must be 20 of these critters sitting around drinking tall-boys, staring at me. Realizing I'm a thin man on a bike wearing skin-tight neon Lycra, I try to be cool by keeping solid, manly eye contact with said critters. However, while maintaining eye contact with them, I drove into a two-foot-deep pothole and launched. As I was trying to unclip, a pack of their mongrel dogs sensed my weakness and charged. I took off, half-crawling in my cleats, squealing like a nine-year old girl, as 20 drunken rednecks laughed their asses off. Then I had to go back for my bike. A banner day.

3. The dumbest thing have ever seen done? Guy wins the local CAT 1 crit, and does his best Lance victory pose in front of the grandstand. Right on top of a sewer grate. Does a 35-mph faceplant in front of 1,000 people, Then he gets disqualified for taking his hands off the bars less that 30' from another rider. Sucks to be you, bud!

So, I forgot to put a disclaimer, stating the fact that I reserve the right to put "nm" in my text box. GOI

NM=no message...biknben

Allison got snippy because the poster had the sense to use NM but put it in the body of the message rather than the topic name.
