strangest thing ever happened to you?

...while on a unicycle ride? post them for all of us to see!

my wierdest experience: i was talkin w/ 2 girls on the street about unicycling and this dude about my age (13-14) comes up and starts talkin w/ us. he asks if he can try my unicycle (about 6 people had asked me this that day) so i let him try it. he started doing all these cool tricks on my pathetic little Jugglebug uni. i was impressed, he told me his name was riley wiklund. i had never seen anyone do tricks(i had only been riding for 2 months) on a uni so i asked him to teach me some. 5-10 minutes later, i was doing hops and spins easy. Riley told me he had unicycles at his place with "big ass tires" and said "dude, go online, look up torker unicycles, and get one, trust me, you'll be doing tricks like me one of these in no time." so i rode off thinking about this. when i got home, i went strait 2 the computer and looked up torkers. about 3 months later i got my torker lx and now I CAN DO ALL THE TRIX RILEY COULD!! !

so what R YOUR stangest experinces???

I went for about a 5 mile ride from my house one night. I live on a somewhat busy street, and always try to take side streets and cut through parks and dirt roads when I can, but at night I am kinda stuck on the busy roads.

I am on my way back, and a police man asks me to stop. He asks what I was doing? I said I was out for a ride... He said that he knew that, but what was I doing? I had to have a light to ride at night by law, and here I was without even a reflector.

I politely showed him the reflecters I had on my pedals, and explained to him that I lived just down the street... I agreed that I should have a light of some kind, but I just didn't ride at night much... He started telling me about all the drunk drivers going too fast, and how he at first thought that I was some kid that often gets in trouble who rides a bike... and he was gonna bust him.

He let me go... and then not 30 seconds later pulled over a car for speeding...

And I had some of the best light of any part of my trip with all the police car lights and stuff on the side of the road...

"Freaked" is spelled wrong there...

On Topic-

I was riding in the park that I always ride through. A man driving by saw me and slammed on his breaks with great conviction and yelled out his window "Where's the other wheel!?!?"

I chimed in with a "Half the bike, twice the fun! One wheel is all you need!"

Then he just laughed, and said "See you later!" and drove off.

I know this is pretty common, the "Where's the other wheel" comment, is the most unorigional. But, it was the first I had recieved! And it's not normal for a guy in a car to SLAM on his breaks like that.

Cheers-
Poseidon

Well i once had Ouzo and black sambouka running through my system and when cops pull you over to give you a breathalyzer test. It comes up with nothing. Maybe it's cause i have a strong immune system. But under no circumstances should anyone else try it.

Moral is: Don't drink and drive.
