Why should you give a sh!t if she wants to ride a bike?
He was trying to make a joke, that's all.

But conversely, we should care since it brings publicity. If she encourages one person to ride that would've never, that's focking awesome.

haven't had your coffee yet I see.

I see the positives of her buying and riding an top end bike.
- bike sales will go up
- will encourage people to ride
- more monkies to mess with
- etc..

but if Paris Hilton is gonna ride a bike why does she have to wear clothes. She should be nekked and riding a road bike.

anyhows... is paris hilton any kind of positive role model?

I'd hit it, and I'd give her bike to a chick I really like. As good as I am, I'm sure she'd tip me with the bike. The big red S should be more thrilled about this than Boonen breaking frames, for sure.

Quite possibly RM's two most hated people; George W. Bush and now Paris Hilton, in the end turn out to be mountain bikers. :rofl:

...the world can be a beautiful place on occasion.

Specialized are such a bunch of whores. Every time I see a celeb on a bike lately, that big red ugly S is there.

Coincidence? I think not...
its also called advertising in some parts of the world....i mean look, we are talking about it now.
for the cost of a bike, the manufacturer can get a celeb to ride their bike and possible be decked out in their ugly apparel.

The best thing for the world would be for her to crash, hit her head, and die.

If you look at it that way, Hilton not wearing a helmet is a VERY positive move...
And she would inspire so many other mall rats to do the same.

Darwinian acceleration.

I love tigers. If it were up to me, big cats would be allowed to roam free in the cities.

Killing them would be punishable by death. By tiger.
If you love tigers, then why would you feed them Raider fans?

That's cruel.

And the diarrhea, fock that.
