    Your beautiful, cuddly, butter wouldn't melt in its mouth kitty cat that you thought would never hurt you turns into a raging tiger with very sharp claws when having to be bathed when covered in oil from lurking under a car

    When it is over 95 degrees, don't take home-made trail mix that has chocolate chips in it for a snack in your Camelbak. Even if you are in the woods it WILL melt I guess I can freeze the baggie it is in and then break it into pieces...

    Always be nice, because if you a snotty, and the other person is nice and polite, you are the idiot and everyone will know it.

    Yeah, of course it was too messy to eat...you would think that I should have realized that when I put it in my bag for the trip Oh well, it can be a bike-ride recovery snack with chocolate milk instead of chips.

    Maybe you should start bringing a spork with you on rides, just in case. They make nice lightweight titanium ones.

    Machete's should only be used if you are wearing protective clothing. So next time your husband says "going to do trail work" And grabs the machete, take it away from him! That way you aren't rushing him to urgent care to get his leg stitched up! (that happend wed of this week).

    And with two thorns still in my fingers from the LAST thing I learned the hard way, so deep I can't dig them out ...

    Don't check the batteries on your PlanetBike SuperFlash by turning it on while looking directly into the lens.



    Anybody here have any common sense they're not using? Because I've apparently misplaced mine.

    Yeah...I've done that by accident with my light (a Cateye tail-light thing) and my retinas haven't forgiven me.

    Did you get them off?

    If you have enough clearance behind the bumper to pull the bolt out from the back, the easiest thing to do is drill off the heads.
