Tarik Saleh Bike Club

I'm not much of a joiner, but when Mr. Jalopy proposed the Tarik Saleh Bike Club, I knew I wanted in. Tarik is one of those awesomely cool dudes who rides bikes around particle accelerators, races when he hasn't trained, trains when he isn't going to race, does fun, goofy stuff 'cause it's fun and goofy, and is the kind of guy who will drive across an entire sun-baked state just to pluck some very dirty, sunburned bum on a bike from the Mexican border and then drive back across the state to plop said bum & his bike on a plane back to Seattle but not before he's stuffed the bum full of very good food. And Tarik also owns a Bridgestone Picnica. Guys with folding bikes are cool. Trust me on that one.

Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, the Tarik Saleh Bike Club. Not only am I in, I'm cashing in. You can join up and join in by getting your own button from my Cafe Press Store. The white buttons are in the store. The nifty silver one pictured above comes from Mr. Saleh himself. I'm hoping he'll chime in or post on his blog as to how folks can get one of those.

The white buttons you can get from the Cafe Press Store. Proceeds go to me, but I'll spend the dough on Tarik the next time I see him. But only get a button if you can abide by the rules of the club. They are good rules. There are only two of them. Tarik made the rules and he's a good guy (see first paragraph).

Here are the Tarik Saleh Bike Club rules:



Words to live by. If you live by those rules, I think you may be already in the club even if you don't have a button.

Keep 'em rolling,

Good thing I only need to TRY not to be an ass. I do my best but I fear I fail sometimes.

I recently got a silver button in the mail, and proudly affixed it to the collar of my rain jacket. I am humbled that someone else has recognized my efforts to avoid Utter Jerkdom.

Now if we could only get Tarik to do a publicity tour...

Definitely rules to live by so I'm in. Placed my order for a couple buttons.

Ride Happy!

Hey Kent,

Thanks for the post!

Bottom line is if someone wants a silver one, they can paypal me 5 bucks at tsaleh-rocketmail-com and I will mail one out with the hand written rules.

I will have a blog post tonight explaining such for linkage.
