Would you say that your style on the bike mirrors your lifestyle off of it?
In my experience, the answer to that question is often 'yes,' with those who take more than enough chances on the bike usually doing the same in their day-to-day life and vice versa. Back in October of last year, I wrote an op-ed on this very topic and used friends of mine
as examples to illustrate my point, including the ever-responsible and in control @mikekazimer
. ''If you did a few laps with Kazimer, you probably won't see any drama,
'' I said. ''Instead, it's calm, cool, and collected riding that, as far as I can tell, matches his usual off-bike demeanor.
On the other end of the sketchy spectrum, we've all got a buddy or two who seem to depend on nothing more than luck to hold it together, be it their life or most of their rides. They usually pull it off somehow, but 'disaster pending' is probably the best way to describe, well, most things about them.
So how about you: Does your riding style match your lifestyle, or do the two contrast each other?
