A man left El Paso to go to Dallas, a trip of 350 miles. He had to get there the next morning and his only transportation was his 15 speed bike.
After the first 50 miles a car pulls up to him and the driver asks, do you need a ride?
"Yes" he said. "Well hop in. But I have no room for your bike."
The man replied "My bike is all I have - do you have a rope to pull me with?"
"Why yes," said the driver.
"Let's tie it to your bumper and my bike so you can pull me."
"Well all right, if you think that would be smart."
Well off they go. The car start picking up speed, 20, 30, 40, 50 crash goes the man on the bike.
The car stops and the driver jumps out, "are you alright?"
"Yes, but didn't you hear me yell?"
"No." said the driver, "But here's a whistle. If I go to fast just blow it and I'll slow down."
Off they go again, 20, 30, 40 and the bike starts shaking so he blows the wistle and the car slows down. This continues for 150 miles.
Then this little red convertible sports car passes with two topless blondes, and the driver floors it, 20, 30, 50, 60, 80 90....right pass a radar trap.
The officer picks up his mike and calls for back up. "Headquarters I need help with some speeders."
"Help?" was the reply, "Man you have our fastest car, what's wrong."
Well I got these two cars doing 100+ and I can handle them. What worries me is just this fool of a guy trying to pass them on his bicycle.
