Maybe your right leg is longer than the other?

Heh DAT I'm glad youre not in Honduras yet and I am really looking forward to drinking some of your beer with you someday.


I found out I'm retarded. SPecifically I think my bike was, but I am by collusion. Well, it might have been re-timing it, it might have been the holes in the airbox and carb I pluggeed up, it might have been a lot of things, but it Pulls Strong now. Im glad, of course, and kicking myself for not having it run this well (sound it would seem) a few weeks ago.

The Valeo screeched like a banshee when I first started it, and kept muttering to itself for a few minutes after as well. Seems ok, now.

Damn the thing runs fast I was kinda scaring myself.

I found out the wireless pickup for the bicycle speedo doesnt work when the bike is running So I'll have to go get a wired one.

MAN I hope the bike works all the way through to the end of the race Sunday! I'm excited! Cant wait to ride it! They say its gonna be 30-40 miles, and already right now i want it to be longer. Maybe my attitude will change when I get stuck for the fifth time but right now I just want to GO GO GO

Sounds like somebody needs a crewchief.

Not honduras... it was Venezuela, but i was talked into turning that one down, so now it's India. I should find out by Nov... it's cost cutting season up on corporate mount olympus, so my chances are slimming. we'll see.
