Fuck it's early
Drove a rental car from my Dad's to Detroit for work. Fuck Detroit. However I was given a Jaguar by the rental company. 250 or so HP, got over 40 MPG on a 200 mile trip. I am actually a little impressed. Could be a fun car if actually offered with a manual.
One more day above grade.
Sunny. Need to drag some stuff to auction.
i thought your dad was in virginia?
Its supposed to hit 90 today, can you say shorts?
Damn I hate getting up at 4am and having to do work shit at 5:30
Good coffee though.
Today is quit your job Monday! Putting in my two weeks then I'll start tidying up my work for the next person.
DMV this afternoon to register the new truck.
Fun filled weekend of beers, friends, a charity walk on Saturday, and even got in a ride yesterday morning.
On a side note... there's a good chance that my wife tore her meniscus in her right knee last week. She already had x-rays but still waiting for an MRI appointment. She's able to walk around on it but it's definitely sore. At least it happened at work so whatever needs to be done will be covered under workers comp.
How is the weekend over already? I am quite sore from all the kneeling bending twisting that comes with stripping my old windows off layers and layers of crap. Now another week with my obsessive new boss who values process over all.
Not a bad weekend at all. Finally back on the bike with an unbroken (but now dislocated and still fucked) hand. Felt pretty damn good considering it's been like ten weeks off the bike. Drank too much Saturday night then started cutting in a new trail on Sunday. So good to be back in the woods.
Oh, and picked up a new bike for my wife on Friday, too.
Day off, so I slept in a little and am going riding.
Morning. It's been a while.
Life has had me busier than I would like, but whatcha gonna do? I did manage to knock out a bunch of trail work yesterday afternoon. Hoping to go reap the rewards of my work later on tonight. Work seems to be getting in the way of riding these days, but I like the OT money.
Test time. Gut is ready to fall out....
Amazing weekend in Bend, no bikes we're ridden this time, though. Friends rented a huge house, our pups played like crazy. After seeing the lineup for this year's summer concert series, we will be back at least three more times. Can't make the Primus show, that sucks.
don't worry, you'll feel like this when you're done (and pass)
Wait... I thought you weren't on that schedule anymore? Don't you have a desk job?!?!
I am quietly sitting at my desk now. It's a gorgeous freakin' day outside. I'd really rather be biking. Really. At least I got a great ride in yesterday afternoon. Not the biggest ride, but I've discovered that my local hill isn't running the lifts till august this year to make upgrades to their lift. in the mean time, I can park at the bottom of the hill, climb to the xc side, and then finish with a great DH. I'm also realizing that I need more air in my tires to ride DH, especially in berms. I was folding tires like nobody's business. I'm also realizing trail bikes these days are ridiculously capable. It's just that the gearing is all wrong for DH. I'm also liking my Vorsprung stuff more and more. crazy good.
Supposedly, but my replacement proved himself to be a flake and we need the account so I split my time between two .hats until I can hire a good replacement driver.
san juan national forest is closed until further notice....per the durango herald.
so.... it was a.... what now?!
Morning Monkeys! I bit off a bit more than I should on Saturday, 14 road miles to an 8 mile XC ride in 85 degree weather and headwind knocked me out. I slept for 12 hours yesterday and had ZERO motivation for anything during the other 12. I'm gonna give the toothpicks a 3 day break.
On the karma side I helped a kid who had a flat and didn't have a spare tube, pump or tools. I normally do not carry my pack on short rides but I needed the extra water so I had one. He was riding an REI low spec bike with wire beaded tires, they literally fell off the rim but made fixing the flat pretty easy. The rims were shrader but the presta tube managed to get him 1.5 miles back to his truck.
Morning. Why am I awake??? Haven't slept yet after getting off shift and I work tonight.....
So in my way inbyesterday, my new windshield, that is just shy of two weeks installed, took another rock and is already fucking broken!!!!
I said a few words, yelled a bit, and turned in the plate number for the brodozer with widebass tires and short mudflaps to my coworkers. He has been cited and has to replace the windshield......... Dude was a serious douche about it.
I probably would not have cared too much if the window wasn't brand new....
Probably wont be any better than what we have in the States.. mainly because they are Euro-spec there!
Atleast he was riding... and still better than Wally world bikes.
There's a good chance he gets one with a manual transmission. All cars I rented in Yurp were manuals. Some of those on the wrong side of the road.
Hello all. I rode into work. Music of choice was Bach's Goldberg Variations as played by Glenn Gould (later recording, 1980s, not 1950s)--gotta bring some culture to the masses.
Going to be a hot ride home.
Do RHD manuals shift the same way or is it reversed as well? I don't know if i like shifting with my left hand.
Shift pattern is the same. I got used to left-hand shifting in about 5 minutes...
Your bottleneck is giving me a bottleneck. I’ve love big queries and I cannot lie.
Yeah, getting used to shifting is easy. Now some cars also switch turning signals and wipers. Those should burn in hell...
Driving in NZ had me constantly turning on the wipers in roundabouts.
Full story from my homie who got run over
Road bikes..... not even once
Order number Freedum™
