What does that make West St. Paul?



The Best Saint Paul, beyatch.

Minneapolitains are just jealous that they don't get a big star by their name...

We noticed :-) Sounds like a easy fix.

Wait a second... in order to hit a pothole, you'd have to be actually... riding your bike?

You totally looked like a dork, riding a scooter. And I bet you had a helmet on.
Ha ha!

Ya pretty much. We were thinking about stopping to see if you needed some help, but traffic was kinda bad and didn't want you to feel weird that we were wearing helmets and all.

Yeah, that was pretty great. We sent somebody back to see if you needed help :-P

Matt, I thought you were just replacing your spark plug... I mean.. you do change it every ten miles right? Oh man! That is embarrassing. Didn't you learn that from the TNR guys?

(For the record, I was making fun of Matt, because he's the kind of loser that'd wear a helmet. I don't know who's all on a TNR, so I don't make those broad generalizations...)

Yeah thanks for that! But it was a good reminder as to why I don't tnr.

Thanks for reminding me Derrick, I knew I was forgetting something when I was putting the cap back on.

Man don't wave, don't stop, and we're the ones being called snobs.

full face, full time.

You guys aren't snobs, you're mostly just curious.

Frankly, I admire the purity of segregation as far as each "class" of bike goes, but I'm put off by the silly conviction that there's any real bit of difference about the end-game of riding. It's mostly boring to me as I assume I'm boring to others.

Anyway, I'd much rather be concerned about our invasion of Iraq, the economy, or the welfare of my friends than to get distracted by banal pride - we have a million good reasons to hate each other, we pretty much don't need to invent new ones.

Just be thankful it wasn't that Gary Charpentier (sp?) guy driving by. He'd not only not wave, but he'd throw rocks and then call the cops because you're littering.

Yeah, well I was kind of hoping you'd need some help, you know? Ah well, we'll just go and let anybody ride with us. It would be fun to have you join a TNR again though. Last time was like two years ago, on a PK automatica if I remember right - that would confuse the twisty riders!

Ya the war pretty much sucks and it even sucks more when you're friends get killed working out in the gym in Baghdad...

Well I won't ride with just anybody, not because of what they ride but how they ride. I value my personal safety too much.

oh yeah the Pluri hasn't gotten out of the garage yet this year.
