Favorite bike or adventure funny story? | I was racing in Colombia for a year in the late 80s. I decided to go on a ride alone without my teammate. I’m riding on a road and all traffic is coming north against me and honking their horns frantically and making gestures. I found it very strange but kept going. I then realized I was the only one riding south – I’m talking no cars around. So, I keep riding and I start seeing helicopters and military. When I get closer, I realize they are having a shoot out with Guerrillas. Military is screaming at me saying “what are you doing riding this way!!”. They throw my bike in a Jeep and drive me back away from the shooting. This is just one of the crazy, dangerous adventures I had on my bike. Crazy!
