I been working at expanding my repertoire of meals I can cook. You know, so when Blaster and I actually pitch a tent on one of the moto adventures, we don't starve. I believe we are finally over the boiling eggs. I was a bit scared when I went to flip the baby back ribs, and flames were shooting out of the grill. Fortuitously, the grill didn't catch the house siding also. Do you think the flames helped achieve that sought after caramelizing?

Well my pedals on the mountain bike have finally worn out so tonight I picked up a new set. One side is setup for clip in shoes and the other is wide like normal pedals so I can ride more casually with regular shoes...now just to get back at it in preps for Ecuador.

Bring that bicycle out here. Tons of trails and a very bike friendly community.

That's how we got people out of East Germany. Whatever it takes to get my freinds out of oppression.

So the insurance company called me today and is declaring my bike dead.

I think the sticker price on my bike was about $20.4k, and it is 28 months old with 65k miles. They think the replacement value is $15,880 plus tax/tags. I also have a $6k accessories kicker on my policy which they said it's obvious I would get the full amount (I could easily produce that much in receipts). So in the end, they will give me $21,880 plus tax/tags.

To be honest, this seems reasonable. I think I would have trouble selling my bike just before the accident for $15,880 without having panniers on it.

This is my first time dealing with this. Am I missing something?
