i pretty much do not like doing any maintenance but given the fact that i tend to operate my vehicles in harsh conditions it's part of the experience. bearings, sprockets and chains should be about seasonal items and as such are part of a normal maintenance cycle and tolerable. anytime changes have to happen on a more frequent interval, there's usually a lesson i'm learning - at the expense of my bank account, potential loss of riding time and mocking by riding associates.

if i had a proper maintenance facility it probably wouldn't be as bad.

tires just wear too fast due to a variety of factors, most of which are under my control yet none of which i alter: distance on traveled highways to find dirt/sand/rock/mud, intensity of right wrist twisting, displacement of bike, and weight of bike. those are probably the biggest contributors. tires are not cheap!

It's just so damn fun to look back and see your rear tire tracks in the dirt...

How are you on dirt?

I wanna ride with more people on dirt, if you're down just let me know. Im in Hyde Park. I don't mind some pavement but not a 100 mile ride.

Ever ascend mount beacon?

C'mon guys, keep an open mind. He's always trying to convince us he's nicer than his alter ego. I intend to give him a chance to show us.

I guess I should be able to identify with that statement, some would certainly disagree.
