Just a page earlier this is what he posted. You probably just missed it.



Yup, been losing about a pound a week now since I got really serious about it again last summer. Started out at about 280-something, I was 225 yesterday.

Biking really helped a lot this summer. :thumb

Dude, The 300lb Askel may have had stuggled with the ladies, but I don't see how the 225lb version should have any problems... walk into that bar and tell them all about the fight with the bear or hippo or whatever. Make it a pirate for that matter. :freaky :freaky That stupid Tshirt that says something about chicks dig scars.. it isn't all wrong.:evil :evil

goonie, goonie, goonie... no helmet, an ipod, AND self-portraits!! True advrider style. :rolleyes :lol3


I just learned a couple weeks ago that helmets are mandatory in Oz. $50 fine. I wear one all the time anyway (always do since I watched one of my friends hit the road on a "slow safe training ride" and have seizures, anyway). The police wait near the busier bike-paths here in the city and do helmet-busts.

Congrats dude...that is awesome...keep it up! Health & fitness is a way of life for me...except when me and Flaco start hitting the Makers...then it all kinda goes out the window, at least for a little while. :1drink

Working out regularly makes it possible to enjoy sinful things like chocolate, cigars, and liquor...

This is my beloved specialized crossroads combined with a 105 group and made bulletproof and simple, solid. Picture taken in Northern Pakistan.
:cry Stolen last year. I never thought I could be so attached to a bicycle, it was like losing your dog.

Yep, don't leave home without it. A guy in one of the bike clubs I ride with died this year from a brain stem injury.

(long story short, his CF Orbea self destructed out of nowhere on a regular road, doing under 15mph, he was wearing a helmet, but landed on the top of his head. Seizures/paralayzed/heart stopped. Spent the next 3 months in a hospital before dying a vegetable.....)

Why mess with the only hard drive you'll ever have? I see roadies all the time whizzing down mountain roads without them -makes no sense at all.

rant off:1drink

Watched The Flying Scotsman tonight and loved it! :clap :clap

It's sorta like The World's Fastest Indian. Not as great as that (what is?), but still really good.
