You also don't have the padding to protect your bones, DAMHIK
fat guys have the mass to prevent the highside

going into a corner a fat guy has moved the center of gravity more just by tipping his shoulder in than the skinny guy hangin off and draggin a knee

I love you too.

Here are some quotable articles for you to justify the beers and cakes. I read the same stories in a more highbrow paper (the UK Times), it's just that doesn't have the same presence online, hence the quotes from the Daily Mail.

Just re-calculated my BMI to see where I fall and I am right on the threshold between overweight and mildly obese, so I am the optimum weight for my height for survivability from crashes, illness and for a long life.

Weighing in at a whopping 62kg, I've always been beating my brothers and cousins out on the trails. A couple of months ago I got my bike stuck, and well that was all folks.

Had to call my 90kg cousin to come pull me out on his brand new Grizzly

I thought we had an agreement that you would not respond to my posts and I wouldn't call you a moron. Obviously you forgot!

Now, go back and try to act like a human, and try not to pretend to be the intellectual you most obviously are not!

Apparently there is no honor in you, probably a mensa word you do not really understand.

Let me try again. Stop responding/stalking my posts, and I will stop calling you a moron! I have zero interest in your lame diatribes (look it up), and would prefer you keep you nonesense to yourself!
