 why is this comment getting so many negitive props?????
  • + 3
 because he is comparing a less fortunate person to the terminator, and it's just because he has a prosthetic leg
  • + 3
 i think its the guys nickname,and ps the northwestdhdad who said the comment is probably a good friend of his and does a hell of a lot of work to bring the sport of mountainbiking on.
  • + 14
 Thanks Les. And yes- Brian Barlett's nickname is the Terminator. Neg prop me all you want- I don't care.
