    Why must you have a $5,000 bike, Yurt?

    They still make these.....

    If you decide to do this, please be careful where you ride. One of my buddies rode in her neighborhood, few cars, slow speeds, all the drivers knew to expect bikes...and was hit in an intersection and literally broke damned near every bone in her body. She's lucky she wasn't killed.

    My word, you're snippy.

    WTF is the problem, Yurt?

    Speak up...I am having trouble understanding what's stuck in your craw.

    What makes you think my reply was not sincere? I could probably find a newspaper article about my buddy's crash, if need be.....good grief, Yurt.

    no maddy...i don't doubt your friend's crash...its the 5K nonsense

    the sport is relatively safe...there are dangers in anything we do, walking, pooping, eating, sleeping, driving....imo...the benefits outweigh the dangers of the sport, though i understand your anecdotal concern...in grad school i had a classmate who was big time into skydiving....well....right after he graduated he jumped and his chute did not open....amazingly he lived...something like 4-6 monnths in the hospital and broke nearly every bone and smashed his face....but he lived....however....it hasn't made an impression on whether i want to skydive or not....just like auto accidents don't affect my desire to use a car to transport myself across this planet

    Fair enough. I admit, it has affected me...I hate hate hate seeing people on bikes in traffic now. Makes me jumpy as hell.
