I went to New Orleans a few weeks ago with my girlfriend and the TSA loved me. She breezed right through (#whiteprivilege) but I got the full service in both San Jose and in New Orleans. Shit is so awkward. Especially when the entire security line is watching you get your junk get touched.
If you didn't look like bigfoot, you'd probably get through no problem.

I still can't believe this f*cking thread is going on, forum changed in 2007... thats 8 years that several of you have been involved in since the start. I wish we could have kept track of all the BAR's and the original 3 or 4 old school threads for a total post count.

I pop in about once a year, i think the only one i still have on Facebook is Dotca. What ever happened to Laurie? I had her on BBM back in the day when people owned blackberries. Never talked to her since.

I was thinking about that the other day - even with all of the threads on Pinkbike, even now - all of the OS/Bar threads must account for at least 10% of forum posts ever!

I just got directed to this - some good trolling times had here...

Still in the Middle East eh? How's that going?

I'm in New Zealand, bought a 27.5plus hardtail here to ride. Thing is awesome.

Country is chill. Happy New Year to you and all.

I'm so adult now. Graduated school, wrote my exam (hopefully I passed, it's a $600 test that I dont want to retake). Got my first real job - should say career now. Hello money and real responsibilities. I picked up a casual position which means I can work when I want, how much I want, get all the overtime I want if I want it apparently. But more importantly - it means I can take off whatever I want in the summer to hit any and all of the biking events I want to. I made a life goal last summer to get back to racing at a competitive level for my 30th summer. I got 2 summers to catch up with everyone who continued racing while i took a break.

Edit. Also holy f*ck. Remember Deanne the admin? I rode with her at cworx last summer and I can still outpace her in the technical but I can just barely keep up on the likes of aline. While I've been sitting around and not racing and just riding by myself she cofounded a womens racing club and got f*cking fast.

Thanks CR!

I got engaged on Friday so I'm offically entering the "grown-up" part of my life.

Wtf!?

Wow, I follow you on IG and FB and I somehow missed both those things. Congratulations x2 Tim. If you have a daughter you're naming her Laurie right?
