Gremlins and Groundhogs

I was going to take today off to celebrate the 7th best movie ever made, but Brado posted the Icycle photos yesterday.

Photos of me ripping...

and tearing...

and shredding...

and failing...

miserably.

There was a clean line to the left (my right). I did not see it. Neither did this kid.

Yet he did not touch the floor.

Beats me why I wrecked. It just happened, like the AMC Gremlin just happened. It was ugly and ill-conceived. Brado took like a million photos standing there, and several riders missed the smooth line and went over the rocks.

None of them wrecked...

except me.

At least I'm good at something.

Being me,

and showing my ass.

Thirty-six years later, the Gremlin seems pretty cool.

Maybe I can hope for the same results.

So, if you had to choose : Punk Bike or Icycle?

Luckily I didn't have to choose.

It would depend on soooooo many anal factors if I had to make a decision.
