    Sleeveless jerseys causes crashes

    In the last few years, every time I have ridden with my shoulders/upper arms exposed I crash hard and hurt myself or break something on the bike. Maybe it is the glare.

    I have GOT to get better at the excuse thing! I have nowhere NEAR your talent. I am humble in your presence. If this sucked, it wasn't my fault!

    No way! Can't be... wait a minute, I was wearing a sleeveless jersey on my ride tonight! Perhaps I was wrong? Perhaps it's been the sleeveless jerseys and not my helmet? No, it's the helmet.

    If it weren't for the fact that I'm never wrong, I may have questioned whether my facts were correct.

    No way Shiggy. I might be the plancton in the "tires and wheels alimentary chain" but you just can't cheat us.... you were wearing a Giro.

    Recently the Vatican stated that further investigations demonstrated that all Giros are created by the Devil himself and he will pull your head towards Hell.

    All of your endoes only reinforce the theory.

    I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

    No, no, no... It's when I need to shave my legs that I crash. Then I have to deal with shaving around the scrapes until they heal. My new protocol is to shave before a difficult ride and then I don't seem to crash as much. And when I do crash, the scrapes have at least some healing time before I have to shave again.

    Thanks goodness it's not the sleeveless jerseys, or I would be a bloody mess from April through September.

    For me it has more to do with the alignment of the celestial bodies and the phases of the moon.
