    Yeah, I know the definition, I just didn't see a girl in that pic. Maybe it is the shitty phone screen. :what:

    Tight pants, girl face, ponytail, stringy backpack. I know that's not 100% conclusive nowadays, but I'd say it's a safe bet...

    Exactly!
    The curves are ment to be ridden, not straightened out.


    When you guys are standing by the side of the road do you ever take a count on the percentage of vehicles that are not in their own lane? Just curious. I know the pictures are sort of biased towards the fail side, but what is the ratio?
    I am lucky enough to live near and ride one of the best roads in the country (US 550 from Durango to Ouray). There are quite a few switchbacks on the Ouray side that are impossible for semis or large motorhomes to stay in their line. Cars and bikes are mostly in their lane. I guess I have never spent time just hanging out on the side of the road, but in my years riding that road I don't see that many lane fails.

    The risk factor is quite severely upped on US550. Those are some serious dropoffs, so people are far less likely to ride over their head and find themselves pushing to the point of getting that far out of shape. You also don't see the same number of tourons visiting from FL and MI. I also didn't see a t-shirt shack or any killpeoples when I was out there last month.

    That ain't lack o' food, that there's lack of exercise. Skinny-fat is the new hotness. :puke1

    If I were riding with a guy in knee-high stockings, I'd be minimizing contact as much as possible too

    Just want to clarify that most of the bug-eyed dicks from Nebraska go to the REAL mountains in Colorado, not those baby ones back east.

    Looks like compression socks. Some *ahem* big-boned folks wear them to aid circulation. I play rugby and know a few large people.





    They still look gay.
