|I used to shave my legs back when I raced mtn. bikes basically because it looked cool and everyone else did it. I still am not aware of any good reason for it (seeing as though my current financial situation does not allow for daily massage).|

|You're with one of your mates [on your bikes] & you're both looking in the window display, when you point to a bike and say: "Ahh, it's a piece of s%#t!" |
Only to hear the reply: "HEY, That's *MY* bike!!"

|I approach a light as it turns red and notice a rider just ahead who made it through while it was green. The rider is continuing up the road in the direction that I will be traveling. As I wait for the light to change, I immediately designated that rider as my "minute man".|
