Picked one up on Friday. I held off on announcing it in hopes of the weather holding. After looking at the extended forecast for the front range, I guess any moisture this purchase may bring would be a good thing.

So if the weather changes, I appologize....I think.

One of my pet peeves... out riding, get a flat, fix the flat, now tire is out of balance and the bike shakes when at speed - especially annoying if the tire is relatively new as it is a PITA to take the wheel off the bike and to the shop just for a re-balance.

...or you throw some knobs
...or the tire changes balance as it wears

Finally got around to picking up a balancer/truing stand



Note to self: If I've stuck more than a pound of wheel weights on.. I'm probably "pulling a shearboy"

Kind of hard to carry that through Cooked Wash! Ya know that bad spot you and Norton know so well, flat and shoulder blade both within a 1/2 mile!

I can hold it, 1 hand on the tire, and one on a beer.
By the way, I found a new cutoff from the tree Mouse ran into, just before the crash site, that takes you to the highway. FUN but prolly to loose/steep and rocky for a loaded bike.

This is exactly like "The Dude Abides" in a female voice...does anyone know if he has blonde hair also????



Any questions? Go read his Amendment 64 Posts after listening to his same perspective:

Abide 64 Quote among many others: Tying school funding into the taxes of marijuana sales is saying "Hey in order to build better and better schools we need more and more people to smoke weed. And if 5 years from now our state goes on a health kick and a bunch of people suddenly stop smoking weed then our schools will suddenly be under funded".

Well..... You've got to say that his method of carrying tire tools was the most creative ever! Impossible to lose.

The things that slip out!

Teaching chemistry today I was doing an introduction to organic chemistry as we are moving out of inorganic. It was the last period of the day, close to the last bell, I was in a hurry and meaning to say ORGANIC Chem, I said ORGASMIC CHEM! I just kept on going like I had no idea. One of my basketball players caught me after class and said did you say what I think you said? I just played dumb and went and told on myself to the principal! She spit her Pepsi all over her office when I told her!
Almost as bad as my first year when I said speak now of forever hold your (sounds like peace) but ends in nis! I need to win the Powerball!
