    Well Maybe Windows is Bearable ! Unix Rules !
    After doing Ride with Berkshire rider yesterday , I had already decidied I was doingthe 8 am ride with SteveC at Blues Hills , so I left My Bike on the car . thisis what It looked like when I went out to leave for the Blue Hills this morning.



    and then Driving down I-495 looked pretty



    Gotto Blue Hills and Steve was there , and he had the New Ted Wojaik Demo Bike. I took it for a spin around the Parking lot, felt very Nice.



    Eric also Showed up , whic was going from one extreame ( with the New Ted ) to the other extreame -- OLD School!

    Rigid WIcked fat chance with Full Suntour components and drop bars.



    this about says it all about the bike



    We were not the only ones out enjoying the day , a Hay burner



    and now it had turned from Snow to Rain, as we are doing the Hill Climb Challenge.
    ( Rt 128/ I-93 in the background )



    and Eric Goes up and over , He is the only who made it too.

    Unfortunatly I must have gotten a drop of water on the lens at this point because all the rest of the Pics are way Blurry. But it was fun , Chilly and Very Very Slippery.

    Now I can have an extra Piece of Pie!




    and one last thing !

    DAM YOU SKOOKUM you jinxed me ! I had not broken a chain all year long , I mention it in your thread about that and wham! we were not even 10 minutes out when My chain Snapped!!!

    I blame you!!!

    Wow sweet. I really want to ride. How tall are you splat? That bike looks a little small for you.

    This reminds me of a dirty joke....

    This guy walked into a bathroom and see's a little person dressed in green using the urinal. Thinking not much of it he uses the urinal next to him and out of the corner of his eye he notices the little guy is hung like a donkey.

    Caught staring the little guy notices and exclaims with a deep Irish accent; "So laddy why are ye so interested in a man relieving himself?"

    "Oh i'm sorry man i was caught a little off guard there, i'm not gay or anything."

    "Ahh laddy don't fret, don't ye know all leprechauns are well endowed!"

    "A leprechaun you say?" the wheels start spinning....

    As they finish the guy abruptly grabs the little guy in a bear hug.

    "Bloody hell what are ye doin laddy?"

    "Well you're a leprechaun, i've caught you, now you must give me your pot of gold!"

    "Aye laddy, tis true you've got me but in order to get me pot o gold ye must allow me to **** you in the arse."

    Well after some careful but swift thought the guy agrees to the terms.

    "Ahhhh so laddy, how old ye be?"

    In obvious discomfort. "i'm uhhh uh twenty uhhh three uhh"

    "Ahhh twenty three and still believin in leprechauns...."

    Nice - Looks like Steve could use a larger sized Ted 5x5 - that's a lot of seatpost.

    Good stuff Splaticus!!
