Boxer OCD!
Ah hell... once its singing smooth I will just ride and ride and ride till the song changes

I mean until the final drive comes apart, but it wont until after break in.

One thing after another.

Nah. He's actually a famous R&B singer over there. Sorta like how David Hasselhoff is famous in Germany.

Ah, no- just a little vacation- Wish I was riding- but its only a short trip, one week, to Kenya for a little safari, but I'm getting in a car to JFK in two hours.

My girlfriend has been out there for a few days already (she's on the board of and African medical organization, which is how we got some cheap flights) and the most hilarious part is I'll be taking our three year old with me. Hello, 24 hours of international travel with a toddler

If I can find a bike out there, I will ride it

Holy crap well this is funny. It's a lot like getting to a rally to begin with:
Found out as I was checking in that my passport expired on Jan 30. Haha it's been good for ten years, I never even thought to look! so we drop back and punt.

Re confirmed flight out same time tomorrow. Got an appointment at the passport services in norwalk for ten amto get a new passport issued same day. Arrange for car service there and back and then book a hotel in NYC and get a cab there.
Put the kid to sleep and I'm ready to go get a drink at the bar.

Crazy times.

Try not to let her run around naked at the airport. I hear they frown on that

SO!?!? Did it seem like it made a huge difference in power? It sounded great. You can hear it resounding off the buildings in the video.
