I wonder how you get a bike to fall with blue towels under it. Besides I don't think I am going to attempt this one in a skirt.

Well I guess I'm going to have to shave or pick up some nylons.

Yeah I saw two of them today riding a tandem bike down the side of the road. That stuff may fly in San Francisco but not here. Tandem bikes are ment to be treated like marriage. Only between a man and a woman. Ride what you like. I prefer women.

Man I did that about a month ago. Came up to a on a turn and it changed in front of me. I stopped fine, but was still leaning a little in the turn when I did. I felt if going over and couldn't stop it. Came down on the right side. Talk about pressure. Had to get it back up before the light went green and the line of cars behind me started honking. Hardest part was getting back on from that side while keeping it from going over again. Man was I shaking for a few minutes after that, but I got it up and made it home alive.

I did it pretty much like skirt lady though.
