For someone like me who has been narrowly avoiding marriage with my lovely girl for the last decade (she knew my beliefs when we started)... this thread just keeps getting gnarlier and gnarlier!

seriously though,
Big congrats Jenna, and big congrats to your wife

I hope the parties are going well, and also, your instagram account needs more photos!

Is that a single speed? That's like the airhead of the bicycling world

Don't be too hard on that bike as there is a young child who is eagerly waiting for it's safe return......you could add some good forks to it to help absorb the rough terrain. Bet it will be cheaper to do than that pig of a bike in Atlanta...

Ya know we could start an entire thread where we could discuss the merits of the type and placement of it's kick-stand, the wheel size and tire choice, the type of OEM seat shocks vs. adding shocks to the wheel, which sprocket size(s) would be best and if it would be better or heresy to upgrade it to a multi-speed bike and whether it should be lovingly restored to it's original OEM glory with all OEM parts or if it should be chopped into a downhill racer... .

4th driveshaft boot since '07

I'm a damn pro at this shit......

 photo 1E23ED0D-BA53-4C19-BDB2-48B757CF0298-21586-00001AEAD846A02F_zps2dc33960.jpg

mmmm.....tasty.

Annoyed, cranky, underfed, under intoxicated....still only took me 30mins of tear down and 10 mins to clean the holy shit out of the affected area. Wondering if this would be a bigger bitch with HPN style swingarm braces and sausage fingers.

And what the hell, MAX?!!! Skittles..........SKITTLES?!!!! What self respecting adult still eats SKITTLES???? I love rainbows, 'cause I have to, but.............yuck.

Somebody must've complained when a flattened, melted Snickers ruined all their gaskets.

That boot sucks but yeah, I've gotten fast at getting that bastard in too.
