I got a Trek mountain bike and a beautiful, chrome finished custom-built BMX bike - now that's flickability


I ride my bikes at least 5 times a week - great way to keep in shape.

I usually ride my F4 everyday after work (if it doesn't rain) at least around town (about 10 miles of riding) when I'm a little tired. But yesterday, I thought about my health.. I haven't done a single exercise for almost a year, and I thought I was getting weak. So.. when I came home from work, I decided to ride my forgotten bicycle (a specialized mountain bike) instead of my F4... and man.. it felt different.

The moment I sat on it, I was like "Woooah I never thought this riding position was this radical! The steering's too sensitive... and man, it's so flickable!" I rode that same route i ride my motorcycle.... then I saw a police car on the other side of the road.. so I did a wheelieee! Yeeehaa!!... the cop was just looking at me.... hehe. Oh man... I'm gonna be riding my bicycle at least once a week now... it's almost as fun as my motorcycle. Plus, I'm sure I can use the leg strength I'd gain in my motorcycling adventures.

Try it sometimes if you still have a bicycle... you'd be surprised too!

I have a Raleigh M80 mountain bike that I ride to work once in a while. Usually I just run (12 mile roundtrip). Amazingly, even the seat on my gixxer is more comfortable than the bicycle.

I wouldn't be so paranoid if you all weren't out to get me.

I've got a Hutch Pro Raider gathering dust in the garage. My 32 year old body will have nothing to do with it!

I get my exercise on dirt bikes. I remember reading somewhere about bicycles causing impotence Seriously, dirt bikes are a great way to work up a sweat and get a total body workout. Wrestling an XR350 around a track for a couple of hours beats going to a gym and fighting over the machines.

And no, chasing after the ice cream man does not count.

I own a bicycle shop named BikeSport in Seattle. I hosted a venue for the "other"/(original??) Bike to Work Day in May. Good to hear of all you cyclists out there.

Bicycles and impotence--What a bunch of crap! The only reason motorcycles don't have "the threat of impotence" is Oprah hasn't latched onto them yet. Seriously, she had an idea for an upcoming show with the theme of "Why bicycles should be banned from the public street". The bike industry sent her a wave of email that shot that down in a hurry.

Anyway, Bikes or Motos, it is all two wheels and all good. It is about leaning into corners, ripping down hill, wheelies and stoppies.

Enjoy yourselves.
