    Rider Up!!

    So,am I being courteous(did I just say that?) or pulling a bgb by shouting that phrase whilst climbing and approaching downhill riders.After a near death experience last nite at Test tracks,I resorted to yelling "rider up" the next time it happened.Mind you,it was a tight trail w/little visibility.....Got to try it a few times and got some strange looks.Of course,I WAS wearing my yellow Borat thong,so that could explain the funny looks!
    What sez you fellow mtbr's?

    I don't shout crap. I figure I'm bigger than just about every other rider here in Durango. If someone wants to play chicken, well I say, LETS GET IT ON!!!!

    Trackstand with both brakes locked at the last second; the downhill rider always loses.

    Do it.

    People are clueless. Think of it as clueing them in.

    In fact, I think I'm getting a clue right now.

    i used to just use my grip shifters to get their attention...now that i no longer have them I'm thinking of wearing a bell around my neck. Of course with the right timing I sometimes get them to notice me by slamming into a tree and cursing...
    Be still and know.....
