YKYAEM when you're pedaling along thinking about what to do if you're harassed for riding on the sidewalk and decide the solution would be a pedal-powered wheel chair.

My friend Bill Warner had lots of fun with that. Where bicycles were not allowed, he had a wheelchair, and where wheelchairs were not allowed, he had a tricycle. Of course, he didn't pedal, he manualed.

Back in the 20th Century, I knew a guy who was a double amputee and his wheelchair had a hand pedal setup like a recumbent bike.

YKYAEM when you push your car into your driveway just to get that trip meter to go from 99.8 MPG to 100.1 MPG.

I dunno. Sounds like perfectly normal behavior to me. It's not like Farva stretching for a hot dog.

When you realize you have good winds so you go out and raise the sails on the boat on the trailer.

small world

When...

1) You have a long-standing online classified e-mail alert for Bridgestone RE92 LRR tires (Insight-sized)...

2)
You get a rare hit on a pair of used tires 500 km away, but contact the seller anyway on the off chance our travels might overlap so we can do a deal (shipping cost is more than they're worth)...

3) After exchanging a couple of messages, the seller asks, "Are you metrompg?"

Lol that’s pretty good...

You might be an EcoModder when you have to explain to rideshare passengers why you used black coroplast for your spoiler instead of carbon fiber, leading into a big discussion on ROI
