  • Maybe I shouldn't have called her fat, or a cunt, but it felt good.

    you gave her flabby flaps a squeeze?

  • "I skid through it with my balls out."

    "...would love to but your fat ass is in the way". She started screaming, I called her a cunt. We both went our separate ways... Maybe I shouldn't have called her fat, or a cunt, but it felt good."

    "Even Lance Armstrong didn't call women fat."

    Have some rep.

  • I got called out by a shopper lady today when she undertook me just before a junction I intended to turn left at, preventing me from getting on the utter left hand side of the road.

    When you think about it, so many of the problems we have on the roads are rooted in this belief that cyclists should be as far left as possible. It's either cars pushing you into the door zone, or it's idiots on bikes merrily undertaking or hugging the gutter before making a kamikaze turn across several lanes to turn right.

    Twats, the lot of them.

  • I have started casually jumping the lights again. I think it's because I'm unemployed at the moment and my life has no clear purpose, the idea of waiting at the line purely out of principle seems abstract and unimportant.

  • I found that learning to trackstand helped me not RLJ, because the wait became part of the challenge and wasn't pointless any more.

  • I can trackstand till the cows come home. I can do it while looking at my watch, scratching my arse, applying lipstick, rolling a cigarette or pleasuring a poodle. I can do it in my flat, I can do it with my cat, I can do it when I'm fat, I can do it in a hat.

    But when I set off again, I have an existential crisis because I don't know where I'm going, or why, and I always feel it would have been better not to stop.

  • RLJing gives you the nausea?

  • Man this morn decides to run a very late yellow/red. He stops where the motorcycle is and mutters a "sorry".
    Coz by that time, I'm about level with the first car turning right.
    I'm on a green, going right to left...I gave him a little nod. Hai!
    Wonder where he retreated to after I passed...

    So you've been practicing since December?

    Sorry!

  • LOL, talk about investigative work!

  • I sometimes jump the lights because I don't want to admit that I can't hold a trackstand because the camber isn't right or my rear wheel is stuck in a pothole. Every time I see someone creep over the line because they can't hold a trackstand I think 'twat'.

    I see no inconsistency here.

  • No, I don't either. Doesn't matter how boss you are, a pothole is going to make holding a steady trackstand nigh on impossible.

    On the flipside, if you see the floor is crap, don't try and trackstand in the first place. And I do snigger at people I see attempting to trackstand and then jumping the lights because they failed...

  • On the flipside, if you are on the edge of the abyss, don't try and trackstand in the first place.

    This.

  • what is a trackstand

  • sort of like a kick stand

  • but with an NJS stamp

  • bit shit. would be easier without the bike.

  • ^ha ha. So true.

  • Wheres the fun in that.

    I do largely for self amusement, although not having to clip into the pedals again is nice.

  • Nodders without mudguard when it's wet. Don't then come and cycle infront of other people.

    Nice muddy face now!
