Now they are fart shorts for the house.

If anyone is looking for the bargain of the year on an e-bike with only 0.1 miles on the odometer and never even outside of the house, please let me know. (Details of my Labor Day Amazon purchase are in the e-bike conversion thread.)

I had everything on the bike assembled early yesterday afternoon, with only an adjustment of the electronic display position on the handlebars and airing up the tires left to do. I swung my leg over the frame to straddle the bike, so that I could rotate the display to be most visible from a riding position. Next thing I knew, I was on the floor in our living room with the bike on top of me! I must have hit the throttle on the way down, because the rear wheel was spinning in the air. My Apple Watch's fall alert was triggered, and it was into the 30-second countdown before calling 911 that I had to abort. The odometer rang up 0.1 miles before I could reach the master battery switch to shut off the power and get out from under the bike. It took over 5 minutes after that to figure out how to get off the floor without kneeling, since I can't put weight on either knee cap without severe pain.

My left ankle has three deep gouges, my right knee is skinned again, my right shoulder has a scrape, and my left chest area where the gizmo is implanted is in pain like it took a direct punch. When my DW came home a little while later, she cleaned up the wounds and put on a total of seven band-aids.

Long story short, I have now come to grips with my life being over and that I am now too old to do even the simplest things.....

Slippers? There's a BMW in my driveway. No way can I also afford slippers!

A family friend who is an ER nurse pointed out the irony of me possibly killing myself trying to get some exercise to stay healthy, and suggested to my DW that I be wrapped in bubble wrap before trying to ride the bike for real. Personally, I'm thinking more along the lines of a police dog training bite-protection suit:



Off to the golf cart store to get a proper set of old man wheels, and then to have my ears lowered.....

I have two full-face Snell SA-rated (auto racing) helmets sitting in the cabinet of my race car hauler, and an open-face one sitting on the passenger seat of my car. I also have a Snell B-95 bicycle helmet, because that's how I roll.....

You watched The Jefferson's after dinner with your parents. And couldn't wait until next week to see Happy Days and Mork and Mindy.

I walked out of the garage and saw my neighbor bent over hands on knees looking downwards. I thought maybe he dropped something and looking for it. I stroll over -

Me - "Hey neighbor. You looking for something?"

Him - "Yeah, I'm looking for my breath. This is what you have to look forward to when you're older."
