    Did you know that lighter flame smells like burnt nose hair?
    Entropy isn't what it used to be.

      I miss the old days.

      Unicycling used to mean freedom. I could ride without having to add equipment. Just me and the unicycle.

      Now that I am old and brittle I need to put on cycling shorts, tights, helmet, wrist guards, knee and shin guards, fanny pack (for tools wallet etc), mirror and specific shoes. Elbow pads probably wouldn't be a bad idea. It gets to be a significant project just to go ride around the neighborhood.

      Falling is easy, its not picking the scabs that is hard.

          If the younger riders take those precautions every time they ride, there will be a lot more of them still riding at our age, and much less likely to become [prematurely] old & brittle!

            I wear my protective gear!

            There have been these threads before.... but...

            I ride because it's relaxing, and when I'm not riding just to relax, then it's fun to challenge myself to learn something new, or conquer some obstacle. There are other reasons, but those are the main motivations

                I havent been on the forum for a bloody long time, and still maestro is the same :L

                I unicycle because that is the term given to the act of riding a unicycle, and I do that because it is fun.
                This is no longer a blank signature, that is all

                  Try to learn something about everything and everything about something.

                    I unicycle because a BC wheel doesn't have pedals.
                    Unicycling is so awesome because it's like riding a tricycle that's missing two wheels.

                      Hawo unicyclesister, welcome to the forums.

                      I haven't unicycled in a while actually, but everytime i do. It is just something that separates me from those who BMX or skateboard and the unique factor (Especially in my area) makes people go when they see me unicycling.
                      I am one weird and unusual Greek Cypriot Australian with a pienormous heart.

                      Can't wait till this game is finally released.

                        It's peer pressure, daddy-o. Around here all the cool kids ride.

                        That and I can't seem to find my other wheel.

                            Actually, I lost about 5 lbs from playing lots of ultimate frisbee... but it figures you wouldn't notice. You never look at me like the other boys do.

                              Erm... You can hardly call it interrogation- it's just a normal question. No one is forcing you to answer.
