Today I (brag thread) V2

The Today I... (brag thread) used to be a great thread, but because of the errors it's not near as good anymore. So here is version 2.

Ha ha, how was it. Always fancied trying this myself!

On a serious note, today i asked the cleaning girl at work to go for a drink friday (she said yes!) Oh and she's a model

Oh and good idea on the V2. I was kinda getting annoyed with V1

I got so annoyed with it that I stopped posting in the thread.

Today I will..... have no time for unicycling

But hopefully in the next few days I will say "Today I learned how to ride one-footed"

Funny, I can wheel walk but not one foot. Keep at it with wheel walking, it is definitely worth it.

I learned to ww on a very low seat on a 20" with a trials tire. You can do it.

The first thing I always have to learn with new tricks is how to fall from those tricks without hurting myself. For wheelwalk, if you lose your balance, instead of removing your feet from the tire, just let yourself tip over and then walk out of it. The injuries will come from trying to eject too early from your uni during wheel walk.

Today, an 12 second still stand, and a pedal bite in my shin from trying to ride one-footed. That's all I get to ride today, but the stillstand is my best so far =/

I'm sure there's a saying out there...

Once bitten twice.....something or other

Well done on the stand still btw, good going!
