You know you're a unicyclist when...

You know you're a unicyclist when...
-you give people on bicycles weird looks
-You see a clown at a circus, and wonder if he'd want to go on a ride
-When you're driving through a city, you're scanning for nice trials lines

Feel free to add your own

when you realise you spend so much time on your unicycle that you cant ride a bike any more.

You know you're a unicyclist when you instinctively go into "unicycle mode" while trying to ride your road bike with no hands causing you to crash embarassingly. As I stumble to my feet literally seeing flashing colors and stars, I say to myself, "NOT MY BIKE!" Gotta have your priorities.

I did this a few years ago, thought I'd pull up the thread for interest:
http://www.unicyclist.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27773

You know you are a unicyclist when......

*Any one of your unicycles is worth more than your car
*You choose an apartment/flat solely on the basis of how close the trails are
*You legs are tan only to mid-thigh
*Your arm tan stops sharply at the wrist
*You shins and calves are made up of scar tissue
*The first thing you ask when you regain consciousness is "How's my unicyle?
*You actually move farther from work so that the unicycle commute will be more heavy duty
*Your work colleagues think of unicycles as a mainstream form of transport
*You mentally log every meal as "good fuel" or "bad fuel"
*You learn you have X money left after paying the bills and the first thing you do is log onto unicycle.com
*Your car, computer, microwave, dishwasher and toilet cistern are all "powered by Unicycle.com"
*You dream of winning the lottery, and the first thing you think of is how many/which unicycles can that money buy?
*You can tell your significant other with a straight face that it's too hot to mow the lawn then take off on an epic MUni ride
*You buy a car based on whether your Coker will fit in the back
*You pull up on your steering wheel when driving up a hill
*Your car is parked in the driveway because your unicycles are parked in the garage
*You signal a turn and hit your wife
*You know the distance of every point of interest within 20miles of your house as well as the location of every pot-hole along the way
*You use a toothbrush to clean your unicycle
*It is an electric toothbrush
*You use a regular toothbrush, the electric toothbrush is for the unicycle
*You read this expecting it to be funny and then realise that it all applies to you

You know your a unicyclist when;

Your driving home from work and every fence, concrete wall etc becomes a skinny, and you think to yourself, i can ride that.

You base the purchase of your 'New House' on the unicycle trials petential.

The clown jokes come from passer byers.

(The best one to date is; "Is that a fixed wheel single speed")

You're recognized locally without your unicycle.

I usually get "where's your bike?" I don't bother correcting them.

-When you can't spend 100$ on a bike but 500$ on a unicycle.
-When you are dreaming about unicycling every night.
-When you can't put any unicycle in the shed in the backyard.
-When you draw tiny unicycles everywhere in your school works.

Yep, even the 29" and 24" covered in mud both stay in my bedroom on top of the wardrobe
