What would a Nationwide RBR get-together be like???funknuggets

I know it will never happen, seems really unlikely anyway. I really wonder sometimes what a big RBR party would be like. I also wonder if people in real life will mimic what they are like on the board... What questions do you have that you would like to have answered... here are a few of mine:

Do you think it would be like LFR, Kristen and Katie1 talking and then a big group of male cyclists encircling them like a pack of hyenas talking about podium girls and colorado cyclist chicks?

Would all the campy people hang out and the shimano people hang out in separate groups, making fun of each others spacers?

Who would win a fight between MR_GRUMPY and SprintNick?

How long would the ride have to be to get MB1, JS Haiku, or Dale Brigham to actually get a workout out of it?

How many people would show up on their fixies?

Who would turn out to be the biggest Fred of them all... ?

How long would it take for Spirito to crack the first beer?

Is DougSloan THAT FAST? (just playin Doug)

For all the time that we spend here, we should consider one of these things. I've never met another regular poster here on this board and figure it would be kinda cool.

I think it would be a great party. Think about it....a weekend surrounded by friends/acquaintances who are passionate about cycling. Who cares how fast/slow anybody is?? We'd ride, then carbo load (drink beer) at night. It would be a blast.

trying to figure out who each person is. You arrive at the event and get a little book with stickers that contains the name/handle of each attendee that they use on the board, but you do not get to introduce yourself to anyone. After the ride and getting to meet and talk with each participant, you place each sticker on the person with the name/handle that you believe tham to be. The person that gets the most correct wins a Pinarello Prince :O)

Heck, most of the people here I've never even seen pictures of. For all we know, some who we think are men or women might be just the opposite.

Mr. Haiku would should up with a keg in the back of his Element, no doubt.

MB1 and MB2 would ride *to* the event, no matter what it is.

The racer types would be griping about the slow pace of the rest of us, especially climbing; then, they'd instinctively sprint for every city limit sign while everyone else thinks WTF?.

Several of us would get into a political argument and someone would end up with a pump in his spokes (I think we know who that is :-).

Gregg would probably pass the hat around to support the site.

You could probably tell where people are from by their tan lines and/or whether their bikes have fenders.

We already know that HH is the biggest Fred, but in a good way, and he's proud of it. Doesn't that go along with being a rocket scientist? (HH, I've met, actually, and is my oldest friend, here.)

PS: I'm a slug, btw. Since baby time, coming up on a year, now, my 20 hours a week are down to 5, if I'm lucky. I'm a full 50% slower on big climbs, as I found out this morning.
OK if everyone stayed on their medications, or really scary nmContinental
