Usually your English is perfect, but I'm a bit confused by what you meant by "steer". I assume you weren't walking a castrated bull home?

lol!

Lol, yes, there's a Handlebar Mustache lol I think it's named after a bike's handlebars, though. Ones from a 'hog', specifically. Why it's called that on Fable, though, where there don't apprear to be bikes of any kind, is anyone's guess. I'm sure Falco would know of any other things of that shape called handlebars that predate bikes.

I didn't know much about them, but thanks to the power of Google, now I do.

Handlebar mustaches date back to at least the Iron Age Celts. But presumably they weren't called that back then, since the Celts had neither bicycles nor the English language (nor even the more primitive but vaguely related Tiberian language).

The term dates only from the late 19th century, or maybe even the 20th, decades after bicycles were invented.

There are a bunch of theories for the name, but the one that sounds best to me is that both bicycles and the handlebar mustache style reached the West around the 1870s-1880s, so the name was invented there, and later spread to the rest of the world by movies.

Two of the other theories come from the British Army. They had bicycles for decades before they had handlebar mustaches. And either they invented the term in the 1890s, when almost every one of their officers sported one, as did the officers of most other countries' militaries, or they invented it in the 1920s to make fun of the RAF, who were the only military force still sporting them.

Anyway, when I think of handlebar mustaches, the first three images that come into my head are Wild West bad guy, retired RAF officer, and Archduke Franz Ferdinand, and I'm pretty sure the name has nothing to do with him, so it makes sense that either the Old West or the RAF would be the genesis of the name.

And GOW, that makes more sense than trying to ride a bike with a castrated bull. :)

I had a pretty nasty bicycle accident when I was 13. A tree unexpectedly fell in the road in front of me, as I was zooming downhill at probably 50kph. I hit the brakes and turned, but it obviously didn't work, because the next thing I remember, I was sliding face-first down the street (although with my face buried in my elbow), 5m beyond the fallen tree. And then my bike landed on my back, bounced, and smacked me in the back of the head.

I suppose I should be thankful I wasn't riding a tandem bike with my cattle at the time. :)

The best thing about being 13 is that you recover pretty quickly from accidents like that. But it still hurt like hell.

lol your post brings back memories lol

my biggest wipeout..... i dont know if i made it up to 50 mph... but i was bombing down a hill ... hit a patch of gravel and down i went. gravel cut all the way thru to my knee cap... pretty gross looking... they had to cut the jagged edges in order to stitch the gash back together... after numerous shots into the wound (which hurt worse than the stitches), and 19 stiches later ... i got a permanent reminder of that day LOL :D

Scraping the skin off half my chest, my left knee, and my right elbow, then grinding asphalt into the wounds, then getting conked on the back of the head with a heavy 5-speed bike, didn't actually hurt all that much. It was the treatment that hurt. I'm not sure if it the shots hurt worse, or getting the asphalt picked out of my knee, because being covered in some kind of antiseptic that burned constantly over half my body soon made me forget all the previous pain.

By the way, it was only 50kph (since we're talking to Europeans here), not 50mph. A bit over 30mph.

Hi GOW :)

Where I come from, in the USA in the state of Idaho, we don't ride our bikes out on the road when there's ice! Especially without a helmet! But the Off-road is still fair game! :D

What kind of bike do you ride? Mountain bike, BMX bike, road bike, etc.?

Idaho is a relatively bike-friendly state but I wish there was more of those here. We have special paved trails called the Centennial Trail and a Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes (which are both shared between the state of Idaho and Washington) mainly for bikes and pedestians only, no cars or golf-carts, etc. They are fun, but they are only 24 miles and 73 miles long each.

I wish we had some roads in the city dedicated to only Bicycling.

LoL I can relate to that! I'm not a mechanical genius but the bicycle is a simple machine to work on, and a big part of the fun of bicycling is maintaining/working on your own bike. My biggest thing is that I suck at working on my brake cables... in fact my bike is out of action at this moment when I should be out riding because I didn't know what I was doing when I started tryinng to work on my brake cable. Going to have to take it to a local bike shop and give them lots of $$$ to fix up my error :(

the netherlands is the cuntry wih the highest percentage of bikers
When I was in Utrecht last summer, there were signs restricting the bicycles to only one side of the canal. I didn't understand why, until I saw it at 17:00 on a Monday evening. The road on that side of the canal was so clogged with bikes that nobody could move. Total gridlock. Some people, instead of resting their feet on the ground, put a hand on the shoulder of the person stopped next to them for balance. I've never seen anything like it. And one of the locals told me, "Utrecht is not very much of a bike city. You can go elsewhere in the Netherlands to see more."

San Francisco tries to be a bike city, but we have so many rules about where you can chain up your bike, and so many people who will steal your bike if you don't chain it up illegally, that it's really not a great place to own one. Plus, I live on the side of a steep hill, and it would really suck coming home tired after work or a club or something and having to get up that hill.

Nope. I was on a busy schedule, trying to visit 6 cities all around the northwest of Europe, see 5 music festivals, and meet up with 2 different friends, in 5 weeks, with a week taken out in the middle working remotely in Munich.

So, my entire time in the Netherlands, besides seeing it from outside train and bus windows, was 2 days in Amsterdam (which for some reason I remember as brightly colored and oddly distorted) and 4 days at a festival in Utrecht. Plus some time in Enschede and then outside a small town called Barneveld (which I remembered only because there's a club called Barneveld in San Francisco) where we got stuck because of transit problems.
By the way, it was only 50kph (since we're talking to Europeans here), not 50mph. A bit over 30mph.

But GoW is Dutch. I figured Brits could handle metric better than Europeans could handle trying to figure out that a mile is 1760 yards, a yard is 2/11ths of a rod, a rod is 16-1/2 feet, and a foot is the alleged size of one of Queen Elizabeth I's male ancestors' feet.
