Talking

Can I get a ?

I rode around with this for a week or so. Probably will do it in the future. Right now I'm personally feeling cynical regarding other bikers, so need to relax. I guess forum banter and flaming can get to you occasionally.

What was fun was pulling up near a bicycle rider slowing down and acting like I was pedalling, and getting a grin. Then giving a thumbs up and moving on!

I got several kiddos to laugh and people in vans to just stare and wave. It was really funny. I think in fact it would have gotten me out of a ticket... maybe!?!

I just like'd listening to music and bobbing my head punk style while at a light. It was fun. The goatee made it a week, then lost it on the freeway when was REALLY windy and hitting 80mph. I'll need to work on technique!

Cool

I plan on getting a KTM, but am prepared to deal with price.

This took me 30 mins of adjusting with paint (on work computer don't have photoshop) so don't be hating on my hard work!

I love my 250, but you know, yesterday when I nearly got run over by an idiot suburban driver, and dropping a gear and opening the throttle only got me 5 mph or less speed! lol. I was a gear too low and needed to drop 2 gears at least to get some fast movement

True story!!


I raced a Harley today and after some really hard riding I managed to PASS the guy. I was riding on one of those really, really twisting sections of canyon road with no straight sections to speak of and where most of the curves have warning signs that say "15 MPH".

I knew if I was going to pass one of those monsters with those big-cubic-inch motors, it would have to be a place like this where handling and rider skill are more important than horsepower alone.

I saw the guy up ahead as I exited one of the turns and knew I could catch him, but it wouldn't be easy. I concentrated on my braking and cornering. three corners later, I was on his fender. Catching him was one thing; passing him would prove to be another.

Two corners later, I pulled up next to him as we sailed down the mountain. I think he was shocked to see me next to him, as I nearly got by him before he could recover. Next corner, same thing. I'd manage to pull up next to him as we started to enter the corners but when we came out he'd get on the throttle and outpower me. His horsepower was almost too much to overcome, but this only made me
more determined than ever.

My only hope was to outbrake him. I held off squeezing the lever until the last instant. I kept my nerve while he lost his. In an instant I was by him. Corner after corner, I could hear the roar of his engine as he struggled to keep up. Three more miles to go before the road straightens out and he would pass me for good.

But now I was in the lead and he would no longer hold me back. I stretched out my lead and by the time we reached the bottom of the canyon, he was more than a full corner behind. I could no longer see him in my rear-view mirror.

Once the road did straighten out, it seemed like it took miles before he passed me, but it was probably just a few hundred yards. I was no match for that kind of horsepower, but it was done. In the tightest section of road, where bravery and skill count for more than horspower and deep pockets, I had passed him. though it was not easy, I had won the race to the bottom of the canyon and I had preserved the proud tradition of another of America's best bikes.

I will always remember that moment. I don't think I've ever pedaled so hard in my life. And some of the credit must go to Schwinn, as well. They really make a great bicycle...

to all my non-rice burning buds.


Is this YOU???????
