Most of us here take their bikes where no car can go, right?
In case of an emergency or natural disaster it's probably easier to move around with an assault vehicle rather than an average car (not necessary water crossings, but maybe get around stuck cars, turn around and find other alternatives to get home)
Anyone here has to be away from home, during or after Sandy, and considers taking your bike?

Last year after Irene I rode to work every day for a week because there were so many trees down that was the only way to make it around without taking the "major highways". Cops seem to let bikes through the roadblocks without hassle. I really hope Sandy turns out to be a non-event; I'm tired of having an unheated indoor pool downstairs...

That is one of the disadvantages of the bike not being overweight like some other brands.

I agree. Riding after a calamity was the only way for me to get to work. I had to off road the bike several times around trees and I wished I had an adventure/enduro. And since we are drawin lines in the sand..... I am a fan of the orange brigade! Bummer about your pool buzz, I live on a slab!

Actually, I think Walter was talking about the orange bikes that are kept light by having plastic water pumps that need to be rebuilt every 7,000 miles, fuel pumps that are good for 10,000 miles, and silly chains that need maintanance.

But, instead of GS banter, how about a little High School Soccer chatting for a while? I'll start by asking about the relationship between vertical leap and athletic ability....



By the way, Scotch Plains just won the Union County Championship. When Sandy dies down, they start working on the states.

Speaking of Soccer Doc,
I personally know the fella who just invented this recently. He "was" an engineer on one of the tractor tugs I use to dock ships. Steve Leen is his name. He knew nothing of the game except his daughters played it. Then one day while watching them practice and the light bulb turns on.
2 years later, he is a millionaire and no longer the chief engineer on that tug !
