Hey Mr starship...
I too have a bit of a belly, and can most likely out manoeuvre, and out ride half the stringy little whippet morons on this forum. Both on, and off the bike.
So, don't let it get to you, just use this forum as a place to find out more about what you enjoy doing, or talking about in the bike world.
I wouldn't post injury pics on here, as there are too many to list in the 20 odd years i've been riding off-road. But, that injury would put a lesser person off... so dont let it do that.
Most of the people on here post quite infrequenty, and are cool enough people (on the digital face of it) But the ones that responded so quickly with insults are the usual kind of rats that hang about in every sewer just waiting to bite.
plumber, BoardinBob, roper, and anyone else who are only here to insult people, just hope you dont meet my FAT ass on a trail, as i will take great pleasure in squashing you all....
peace/love/happy trails etc:
