Other Comments
· Lovely awards

· "Favorite thread that I can remember ... the thread where somebody (Ken in KC?) described his ""lusting after another"" and stressing over his decision weather to ""take her riding"" or not, only to fool most Passionites and really be talking about his brother's Bullit."

· Thanks guys! We all appreciate the effort putting this thing together.

· Good job, Chef, we miss you on the board!

· Best Posts of the year would have to be 9/11 when everyone seemed genuinely concerned about each other's well-being, and 1/14 DR1 anniversary posts, brings out the best and all those oldie/lurkers.

· When are you going to do them for

· Pete sux.

· Award GTRider a dictionary.

· Pretty bland thanks.

· Sux, hated em, jah humbug.

· Chef's administrative roll in these awards, however small, leaves a certain stench that can best be described at "Putrid". (Ed. - then don't participate)

· I hope you didn't miss any important homwork assignments working on this thing… (Ed.-that's why he begs me for help every year ;-P)

· Best Screen Name: Alloy Nipples

· Okay BW, time to come up with some entirely new questions. berrywise notes: umm do something about. Suggest new questions or take it or leave it I guess.

· Great job, continue the tradition!

· Even now I miss the old MTBR… It just ain't the same.

· You should get paid for doing this. Or at least get some cool schwag. (Ed.- I could live with that)

· Yay! Is it legal to vote for yourself? More than once? Thanks for doing this.

· New Categories for next year: Breaks the most bikes/parts, Most likely to injure self, Least likely to actually ride (Ed.- Ghost would win that hands down), Poster with the biggest ego.

· These are my first Grimy's...I'd like to thank the academy, and all those who supported me...blah,blah,blah...Happy New Year

· Even though I lurk a lot more than I post, and even though I ride my roadie a lot more than my MTB, I still love this site and consider many of the posters to be good friends, even though I have never "met" them.

· you need a funniest post of the year category

· For next year add most likely to something stupid on a bike!

Twilight Error would like to thank John Jameson &Sons Whiskey and the Dropkick Murphys for getting him through tallying these votes.

Chef would like to thank Smirnoff Ice, Bass Ale, and the "Shuffle" button for the same thing.

berrywise would not like to thank Old Milwaukee & Leinies Original returnable cases for the sole fact that they delayed him heavily in getting anything done on time.
