Is this really the forum for such personal matters?

It痴 definitely not a forum for personal matters. I just thought it might be of interest to discuss different types of dismounting. I didn稚 mean to offend readers by explaining where I got the idea from.

I think you might have missed the joke, so:

You missed my dry wit. If my wife invited me to try different "mounts" I would think I was in for a night of sexual experimentation. If she asked me to try different dismounts, I would be surprised but would do my best to oblige. The use of "mount" (and, subsequently "ride") in this context should require no further clarification.

Thus, posting, "My wife suggested... etc." could be mischievously misinterpreted as what we sometimes call "over sharing" or "too much information".

I'll get my coat.

Ok, ok, I lost!!!

Now I realize how hilariously funny this all was. I forgot, again, to think horny. Always thought unicyclists would think about unicycles first and sex second. (How should I interpret, now, my wife giving me my first unicycle for Christmas? Did she want me to learn different types of mount?)

I think she meant you should mount something/one else....

Make up your own joke about 20 inches here.

Some names for mounts are jokes by themselves now. Just imagine the leg wrap mount or the jump mount.

Looking at the threads intention, I have, though, come to the conclusion, that no one seems to have classified different dismounts.
I wonder if this would make an interesting project.

I would be fascinated to see what anyone could come up with. I'd be up for trying some different dismounts if I could think of any!

I might have a bit of a play next time I'm out, although I expect they'd basically all be for show rather than practicality.

I don't think I've had the desire to do that dismount since the early 1980s, specifically that one parade, and haven't seen my partner in that stupidity, Mark "Shakey" Schaefer, also since the 1980s. I'll be glad to help if someone wants to "develop" it.

I think we tend to think about unicycles first and sex later.

Have I mentioned that I have a 45"?

It's so big you can't put it in a Volkswagen.

It's so big I have to keep it in the garage.

The Lycra dismount

I once perfected the 'Lycra' dismount - one of my most memorable dismounts

There I was unicycling along the promenade, when I spotted this attractive young lady jogger in tight Lycra shorts

Whilst busy watching her lovely bottom, I hit a pile of sand and did the perfect cartoon style dismount. I flew forward & finished up spread eagled, face down, on the pavement! My glasses had flown off and I heard this frail voice (it was an old lady) asking 'are you alright young man?' (I was in my late fifties at the time). I replied, I will be fine if I could find my glasses, a young lad retrieved them & handed them to me. I could then see my 'helpers' & thanked them

I had a few grazes & bruises, but was not badly hurt - I still laugh when I think about it!

I also accomplished that dismount a couple of years ago! I was going far too fast on my 36 because of the 'Lycra' distraction. I initially landed on my feet first but because of the speed of the UPD I was thrown forward and finally landed with my knees scraping the concrete.. So far, the worst UPD I've had on the 36..The 'Lycra' dismount is always lurking!

I'd also have the Lycra when driving a car, but so far I've been able to keep disasters at bay. There have been some close calls though. Such distractions shouldn't be allowed to happen
