Patches suck,,and me a Mama are both on them,,so the dogs haven't come out from under the bed in a week.
Im doing it,,cut down alot.To be honest I went from pack,pack and a half a day to 10cigs and some chemicals that get sucked in my skin a day.
When im home I got so much to do,i bearly smoke 5 a day.
WORK is the hard part for me.although I do see some anger manegment classes coming my way.Being on the road 6 days a week its hard.
Nate even said something to me at Echo valley the other day,cause he hadn't see me smoke in 2-3 hours.
I can do 15 miles on the stationary bike a day without puking.Baby steps.
Im committed,,i told Mama I bought a Sprinter to goto rides with my friends,and I just needed it.Then came home with brand new bike cause Im gona race next season.Then im quiting smoking and so is she.Its either this for my midlife whatever or im getting a boyfriend that doesn't care how I look or how much I smoke.
Atleast you work in an office envirment,where the dirty looks from the do gooders give you something to put the hate on and everyone helps you quit.
My work the old guys call you pussy[not to my face]and offer you a smoke.

You can tell im quiting smoke'n,,even the simplest questions get answered with a page of rant.

Now wheres the Berg???

Working in an office environment does not necessarily make it easier to quit when you deal with the public all day.

My triggers are the occasional bad customer, and driving on roads with the other fktards. Lay on the horn, light a smoke to calm down and distract myself from going crazy.

You may want to try the "Logic" brand e-cigs (the others I have tried were lame), they help me get past the moments when I really want to light up.

The 'berg; I honestly have done very little with it. I tidied up some of the wiring that looked too vulnerable for my taste (not that it was in a good place by factory design anyways (pretty obvious that adding elec. start was an afterthought), but I did the best I could). I made my own gasket for the slave cylinder. Like you said, worked ok for a while, then I think the homemade gasket started to fail again.

I just have not taken the time to order parts yet. It needs fork seals. I think I'm just going to order a new slave assembly. The (slave) cylinder has a good sized gouge in it, there is a missing spring, and I should probably replace the piston too. My biggest problem is finding the part # for the gasket. The schematics I find have the part numbers for all the metal parts, but none of the gaskets. Just a reference to the "gasket set" or something.

There's a few other small things to address, but once I get around to sorting it, it should make a nice little knockaround woods bike I'm hoping. I'm thinking I would like to get in on some of the easier enduros/ hare scrambles, just for the sake of riding some trails I wouldn't normally have access to, and getting a little more exercise.

With a name like that, it'd have to be.

Actually, when I saw your video from the Layden enduro, I was wishing I had taken the 250, and went. That looked like a lot of fun.

the mudslinger is a toned down hell in the hills. Should still be pretty rough. Leyden is usually one of the smoothest. Definitely the easiest one that I did last year but it does have its rough spots. Just one of em will suck the energy out of you and make you wish you went home and I quit smoking 3-5 years ago

I did it two years ago.

Came home with a sprained ankle, sprained thumb, scratched fork tube, blown fork seal, and a 2nd place trophy.

If you want easier, put the Scrub Pine Enduro on your calendar. Not "easy" by any stretch, but a lot of fun trails, and you don't feel like you've had the shit kicked out of you at the end of the day.

Thought of that. Good idea... until it pops in the middle of a nasty section of trail, then I'll wish I spent a few extra $$ anyway.

I've got a few extra batteries, so I can carry an already charged backup or two if necessary. They are not that expensive, and take up much less room than a pack of smokes.

When is that?

I'd like to at least have the berg ready for the Hammer Run this year though.

October 20th, weekend before the Hammer Run, looks like.

Nice warm-up event for Hammer Country.

You ever do the Hammer Fran?

I don't think I have the patience to do 2 runs through the heart of NJ in that short of a time frame.
