Look on the bright side, SOG. At this rate you should be really good at riding deep loose sand in, say, 2-3 years.

You're right about the low seat, BTW. It's hard. Bought a gel cushion before I left but still proudly refusing to use it. (Ow!)

Started raining at my house in north austin about 6 am, tried riding to work via mopac during a lull and hit heavy rain instead. turned around and took I 35 and was mostly dry. Nary a drop downtown but sadly a rider was lost this am north of campus after being hit by what looks like a left turning cage.

That's just wrong in so many ways. Put a shirt on dude ! ! !

And by the way Tom, no rain at my house either. Lightning and thunder woke me up at 3AM but not rain.
