        you start carrying a unicycle in your car at all times just in case you can escape from whatever you were doing (other than unicycling) to go for a ride.

          It's called a Muni ride, not a Muni walk ... If you're not tired at the end of a MUni ride, you're doing something wrong. - Tholub -

                              ...you are on a dating website, and your profile features pictures and benefits of unicycling. I said,"...if you've read this far, you may have looked at all the pictures and noticed the huge unicycle. If the fact that I like to ride unicycles embarrasses you, then we probably shouldn't get together!" It helped to weed-out the women that were only concerned about appearances and materialism (in my opinion).

                              Recently started dating an amazing girl that is intrigued by it (haven't started any lessons yet...)

                                111-your reading unicycle forums instead of doing homework

I said,"...if you've read this far, you may have looked at all the pictures and noticed the huge unicycle. If the fact that I like to ride unicycles embarrasses you, then we probably shouldn't get together!"


                                119-You know you're a STREET unicyclist when…you count all the stairs in the street
                                Ride everywhere and never just ride anywhere. If you can ride where you are going within a hour, do it, and if you can do a trick 50-75% of the time do it along the way.- Bob Burnquist
