but i tell her she needs to lose some major weight. I told her when she can whip my arse on the bike then I will let her race. I personally think she is hopeless, and will never be able to accomplsh on the bike what I can do. She is just too fat to race. Do they have races for fat bottomed girls?

Seriously, with no hills, the track is the great realm of the gravitationally challenged.

But that is ignoring the REAL reason she wants to race -- to get away from YOU!

What the @#$% does that mean? Is that the nice way to say "fat" now? LOL. PC will be the downfall of modern civilization. The "kinder, gentler" people of the world are bringing us down. They make it seem o.k. to be fat, lazy, ignorant, or just plain stupid. What is the world coming too? If some one is fat, call them fat, then maybe they'll get off their ass and do something about it.

Not necessarily fat, but just heavy. Why did Lance make such an improvement in his climbing after caner? He lost upper body weight (muscle mass). Was he fat? Well, you make the call on that one.

In actuality, the term was meant more for humor than any PCness. The problem with the net: tone is set by the reader.

it was rather humorous, as are most replies to anything RPR has to say...I should stay off my soap box though, before I open another can of worms

as you could probably tell, I don't care for fat people too much. most of it comes from myself being rather thin and always hearing, "man, I wish I could look like you..." and I just want to say, "ya know what fatty, stop saying that and just get off your lazy ass and un@#$% yourself." but making people cry is tiresome sometimes...
RRP's Custom Racing BikeAllisonHayes

RRP went all the way to Italy to have this bike custom fitted by none other than Ernesto himself. It is the new C-35000. First, however, RRP had to visit his proctologist to surgically remove his old seat. I understand it hurt like a sonofabitch.

A custom racing bike & seat like the one pictured make life easier for RRP now. He is still working on getting the rickshaw for Mrs RRP.

Strangely enough, he tried to get his insurance company to foot the bill for the new bike & seat. He explained that this set up would be cheaper than paying for another surgery. The insurance company would have nothing to do with it and turned him down cold.
