    (Newbie) drops her bike... I hope you're OK.

    I was walking with my wife and son late this afternoon when I saw a male and female rider stopped/parked at the corner of 6th and Carnarvon in New West (just outside The Old Spaghetti Factory). The male rider left, and the other rider started to leave but (probably) stalled her bike, and because of the incline dropped her bike on the right side. By the time I made my way across the intersection, another dude was already helping her right her bike. She looked a bit shaken and understandably embarrassed (I was the first time I dropped my bike and someone helped me). She was alright (we asked), the bike, being a 599 (a nice yellow one too) appeared to have come away with only a bent brake lever, and a few ounces less gas. By now the lead rider had returned and asked, "What happened?" She replied, "I dropped the bike." The fellows response is why I post.

    "What the F*CK?!".

    I would have expected the first thing out of a fellow rider's mouth is "Are you alright?"

    Anyways, if you're the young lady riding today, I hope you're alright, keep practicing your incline starts. If you're the "gentleman", shame on you, she probably felt bad enough having dropped the bike in the first place, no need to ensure she's feeling bad. Try a bit of compassion next time; life works out better for everyone in the end that way.

    That's a dick move. Maybe it was one of those talk before you think moments, but nonetheless that's pretty harsh.

    Wow, that sucks. Feeling bad enough as it is I'm sure.

    Talking of the WTF response.... I was chatting with a friend on MSN, and I told him I bought my first motorbike, and he replied "WTF!?" Then he told me how they're dangerous and he'd never buy a bike. Well, good for you, then don't buy one. Don't give me a hard time cos I bought one though.

    Only if you're on BCSB....
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    That reminds me, my coffee this evening has gone right through me... I'll be right back.

    ...

    Ahh... that's better.

    Glad to hear the rider was okay, with only minor damage to the bike. If she's on here, know that it's always good when a learning experience doesn't cost you anything. In this case, it might cost you a brake lever and a boyfriend. Sounds like you could stand to replace the latter anyway.

    Gravity sucks. Sometimes it works to your advantage, other times it don't. C'est la vie.
    If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.
