If I go three days between bike rides, I get grouchy. My motorcycle hasn't been tagged in three years. I at least get it out and start it a couple times a year.

I still enjoy both, but when it comes time to pick whether I'd like to ride the MC and get fatter or ride the bicycles (or run) and get thinner, guess which usually wins out.

There's only X amount of hours in a day...

I just finished hosting an MC rally at my place and spent more time riding my cruiser to the beach than riding my MC

close, quite a few times.

Only thing i use the moto for now is commute to work, and long road trips. No more wknd day rides, only time for cycling.

My crankset probably did more revolutions than my crankshaft this summer.

Yo da house...

Bike Friday - anyone own one?

Looking for a travel bike...

Most folders/travel bikes won't support my weight and they're afraid of the torque, but BF will make me half a tandem...

BF customer service is clearly insanely fantastic, but what about the product?

Thx

Looks like a cool company making equally cool folders.

On another subject. I got my Monocog set up with 2.35" 29er Big Apples. Only problem I'm having with them is my weight. I'm pressure gauge lacking. (what are you using?) So I've been running them at finger firmness. I have them set on the very firm setting but I'm still riding around looking like I have flat tires. How are your tires looking at your pressures? Thanks a ton.
