I have never met any 1%ers that give a shit about the weather.

Looks like summer is coming back with a vengeance later in the week.

Maybe I'm confused on the definition of 1%ers. I've always thought it was like weekend warriors/fair weather riders.

You really need to read Ryan Jordan's book Backpacking Light. Specifically the section on tarp camping.

Aaah. That explains it. A 1%er is an outlaw biker . As opposed to a lookalike outlaw biker.

That would make sense too.

I like it for the guys that only ride 1% of the time. I could of sworn I'd seen it in that context multiple times on here... musta been a European using it that way.

The leaner no more leans. I've worked the last two days turning it into a rigid. It's not finished but I've ridden it around couple blocks and can fly the chair very easily. The fun thing is I was able to keep it in the air for a couple blocks.

Wut? Highs next week are forecasted to be 90 up here. That hardly counts as summer here. Maybe the forecast for the greater Waco area is for hotter weather.
