    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.

    it would probably mess up her hair she would say.
    also, wasnt Bush seen riding a mountain bike too? he's a even worse role model than Paris

    Nobody said she's trying to be a positive role model.

    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...

    She probably avoids helmets in public these days as every time she's been involved with any sort of riding involving helmets.
    Someone posts a vid of it on the internet....... And stinkyboy is not seen out of his room for a month as a result.:shocked:

    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.

    No helmet, smallest gear, pushing the bike up a not so steep climb, fiji water. That is all.

    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.

    Helmets imply that there's something underneath to protect.

    If she smacked her head, I'm pretty sure all levels would remain the same.

    And she would inspire so many other mall rats to do the same.

    What with things like this and Raiders fans getting eaten by tigers these days, there is no shortage of stupid sh1t to laugh at.

    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.
