a phenomenon I didn't know existed.

It's kinda like how I've heard of seamen who have been on the submarine for weeks/months where they get to shore and when they stand still, they sway from side to side.
aka: sea legs.

I was on the bike on and off all afternoon, and I just got back from a quick night ride. I call this phenomenon "bike legs".

I'm sitting here in my computer chair, and if I stop thinking about it, I will catch myself leaning ever so slightly to one side and I will give my right or left foot a little bit of pressure against the ground, kinda like I'm balancing the bike at a stop light.

I'm sure this is old news to you all but I think it's kinda funny.

Yep, I'm addicted.

Never had this happen. When I'm at work I'm tempted to hang my knee out when I drive the forklift jk

I work in a big warehouse and when I push a cart at work, I always make it do wheelies and when I'm pulling/pushing a two wheeled hand cart I let it go at balance point and see how long it will ride by itself

I tend to lean towards the inside of a curve when I'm in a car, and I attribute it to the bike.

ROFL I do the same stuff! Especially the hand truck (dolly) thing! I can't count how many times i've dropped it, or take a corner sharp and get it up on one wheel, then try to keep it on one wheel while still going where you want to go. Good Times!
