After work yesterday, I went home. After being there for a bit, I went out again, on my bike, and
rode up the hill, along the road, through the alley, down the field to my Bro's house. He was having
a get together.

I sat and chatted, 'shot ****' on a video game (which was dull), smoked some weed, drank a bottle of
red wine and 6 cans of beer. I was tired before I came out and by now was very tired. I fell asleep,
then I woke up, then I fell over, then I stood up and got on the bike and set off home.

I started going up the field, but when I hit the steep bit someone tipped the hill up, rudely
dumping me on the muddy ground. Bastards. Anyhow, so I got back on the bike and they tipped it again
even before I started pedalling again.

I made it to the top of the field eventually. I got home eventually too. I don't remember if I took
on the 3 foot drop in the alley near my pad, but I presume I did, 'cos I usually do.

I'm gonna get the doctor to check my inner ear.

Anyone else fall off their mountain bike a lot?

No. I'm guessing a pharmacological problem, you need some sort of stimulate in the mix. Caffine
often works for me, but I would suggest something much stronger in your case. :)

One of my college buddies went out to the pub after having a few, got on her bike to ride home, and
was informed by the local constabulatory (did I say that right?) that she could get a ticket for
operating a vehicle under the influence. I had thought it only applied to cars.

Pretty damn close for a yank ;-) "constabulary".

>I had thought it only applied to cars.

I once got a speeding ticket on a road bike for doing 35 in a 25 zone. Probably didn't help that
traffic was at a standstill and I was speeding up between the cars and the sidewalk. Passed the cop
car and the siren went off, followed by a shout of "You! On the bike!" Fortunately, that was many
years ago (1973), and it didn't stay on my record ;-)

tsk, tsk, tsk....perhaps if you had stopped at 5 cans of beer...

Course not we all know it was that 6th can of beer.

Peace, Bill

The mind serves properly as a window glass rather than as a reflector, that is, the mind should give
an immediate view instead of an interpretation of the world.

Guy I worked with in the Air Force got a ticket from the air cops for doing 45 on base on
his 10-speed.

Needless-to-say, he had it framed.

More often than I care to admit, but not for your reasons (at least for the last decade since I quit
drinking alcohol).

When I was living in Laramie, WY back in the early 80's, and cycling was just another way to get
home from the bar for me, I had a friend who got a nasty ticket for riding drunk. It was at night,
and he didn't have lights or anything, but still, better than driving home, isn't it?

Then a few years ago, there was a highly publicized case of a guy in Boulder who rode home from the
tavern. He got a full-on DUI, and his license to drive a *car* was suspended. I think it eventually
got thrown out or at least reduced, but in the short run the guy was treated no differently than if
he'd been driving a car. In CO, DUI can cost you thousands of dollars in fines and insurance,
driving privileges being revoked for some period, probation; even for a first offense.

Now we all know, stuff that happens in The People's Republic of Boulder is not actually "real life".
But the point is that in most states the way the vehicle code reads, bicycles are subject to most of
the same laws that motorized traffic is subject to. The cop on the scene has a certain amount of
discretion. But you can be charged with a pretty serious driving offense without actually driving.

In California you can get a DUI riding a horse while intoxicated. And lose your driver's license at
the same time. Same applies to bicycles.

Nope. Rarely fall. Unless it's going over some slippery ******* of a root that finds itself under my
wheel. Then I usually end up doing some olympic sized wipe out.

Liver is fine, but my kidneys are shot. I'm only physically a lightweight - why, I'm such a bad ass
manly man, bet I could drink you and 43 of yer mates under the table.
