no flat tires! (my top ten)trekkie1

1. No flats. Well, actually, I have gotten a flat -- on the front, no less. Using a really, really old tire on the front, it finally gave up the ghost and blew the sidewall.

2. You can sleep on the bike.

3. Read or watch television.

4. You don't get wet or cold.

5. You can piss off your neighbors, if you live in an apartment.

6. Riding Naked! (LFR?)

7. The fridge and the toilet are closeby.

8. Sweat off the weight (any former wrestlers here?).

9. Kleenex handy, instead of snot rockets.

10. Create hills whenever you want.

Thought I heard someone using my name in vain.

riding naked indeed. Trust me, no one on this forum wants to see that. I'd sooner listen to Milli Vanilli. Actually, I'd sooner listen to Neil Diamond, sung by a third grade choir, accompanied by a bagpipe symphony.

Tho I have, to my shame, participated in a 'naked crit'. Not one of my finer moments.

You guys are funny, but I still see nothing that inspires me to pull out that cursed infernal contraption. I'm still managing to ride 10-12 hours per week without having dragged it out of the closet.

And when he lets's go half the valley shakes."

The image of you riding naked to "Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show" is making it impossible for me to get back to work. I'm off to lunch, and now I'll probably sublimate by overeating.

I thought I recalled some discussion about LFR riding naked/topless on the trainer after the shoulder thing. Maybe it was just a dream. :-)

your recall is just fine. However *they* started it, not me. I merely posted a pic of me (in a tent-sized T-shirt even) to prove that I was back riding on the trainer, despite the sling. What followed onto the pic was the typical RBR testosterone induced troll-fest :)

Your riding buddies in front of you can be, amongst others, Heather Lee, Christy Canyon, Mimi Miyagi and Jenna Jameson and yes, they are indeed riding with you naked. :)

when she comes up behind you and says "DADDY!!!!" scaring the bejeezus out of you (riskier on rollers than trainer, I'll grant you that).
