    At least we didn't have to endure endless half-nude photos of Bush at the beach flaunting his metrosexuality like this:

    check these videos in texas and tell me you could do this with never an injury:

    and utah:

    the roots are killer - hit them at an angle without muscling your wheel over them and down you go. care to hit one of those trees? the average speed after an hour of this will be 11-14 mph, hitting tops at 20+.

    you dont get an appreciation of the steepness of some of the inclines but you should be able to tell this is no mamby pamby ride in the park. cross country MTB is the most grueling thing i have ever done, 10 to 15 miles and one to one and a half hours of gut wrenching 110% anerobic balls to the wall riding. easily the hardest thing i have ever done. and casual riding isnt much easier, you just cant go slow very easy, you need momentum to get through so much of it.

    when the anti-bushes joked after he crashed that maybe he needed training wheels i died, again, they have no concept of what this type of riding is like. 99% of people couldnt even make it 100 yds, and i would bet the most athletic of you would not be able to keep up with W for even 1/4 mile without several months of training. in 2005 i did an end-O and ripped my rotator cuff severely, and i quit. started to get back into it then got Brady and he took all my spare time that i used to use for biking and i quickly added way too many lbs than i care to mention. the good news is, the bike is prepped and ready and i am headed out for a ride this afternoon. now that i work from home i can fit it in with dog training.



    trust me - this:




    is VERY VERY different than this:





    I just picked myself up off of the floor from laughing. David, those comparison photos pretty much say it all.

    do you only get to make comparisons to Bush when it suits you? gibson? why aren't you bush-policing this? if dnf or yardley mutters the name, no matter the context, we get 10-15 subsequent posts about that's all democrats have to fall on and that Bush is no longer in so lets focus on the present, etc. let's keep some consistency please.

    At least Bush would have been in Crawford, TX regards,
    in your opinion what has he done wrong? is the president to go to the most miserable weather and spend time there to demonstrate empathy to the citizens? just spend his presidency travelling around the country to where ever there is bad weather and put himself up. that would be really helpful in advancing our nation.

    i dont have a huge problem with obama taking a vacation. but the separate planes and a few other unnecessary cost overruns could be managed better i think. heck, i think he needs more vacation time, i dont have a problem if he takes, oh, the next year and a half off. or just make it 2 years, yep, thats better.

    the bush comparison was just to bring his biking to light - mjh and other people like the liberal press thought he might need training wheels and mocked that he got injured by a few crashes when they have no idea what that level of biking is all about. its like saying pro football is a kids game. yeah. lets see them do it.

    He has done nothing wrong just not smart. He earlier advised the country to stay away from Vegas, tighten your belts, pay more taxes, etc.

    I have it on good authority thru a PM that the boobs we see in the amateurish photoshop posted by JulieR are indeed hers...the smile is indeed Obama's.

    Nice Rack Julie....
