    With love,

    Actually I find that more poetic.

    And it's the primary reason I chose to ride my bicycle EVERYWHERE instead of driving. When I'm driving, my middle finger is always on alert, and my mind is constantly arguing with the slo-pokes who get in my precious and super-important way (as you already know since you've ridden with me). icon_lol.gif

    On a bike, especially riding BMX style, I can find little things to jump, tailwhip, shred, etc. on my way to the store or wherever. It takes what used to be a mundane drive and turns it into an exciting adventure, so I arrive feeling great instead of pissed off. Of course that way of travel isn't for everyone, but as the video says, it's my choice...a choice to enjoy my life instead of hating others' lives. icon_biggrin.gif

    This one seemed far more powerful to me. Thanks for sharing it.

    Best thread of the year...so far.
    Lot of wisdom and emotional pull in these clips.

    The power to choose.
