Sorry you couldn't come down with us yesterday- it was only a 50-60 mile trip but it was fun. She fucking rails through there- for me its kind of scary because I am SO used to flat and those her her roads LOL.


There pretty much are mediocre roads up in North Jersey- truly- they just barely satisfy the appiteite for wonderlust. If you are after true technical stuff you almost invariably cannot find it in Jersey- not that they are bad roads up there around- it's just they aren't that great compared to PA. I forgot also the first weekend in May I'm having teeth pulled- so I'm sure squeezing my stupid helmet into a swollen face won't work LMAO. so yeah first week in May is a no go for me. trying to think of what's going on next weekend- might be game for some wondering! :)

ah poopie- emergency trip to Virginia just came up... see ya guys later!
I would have liked to have come... But I had kids' soccer games to go to and Arleen was working, so it just didn't work out.

I love how you rode to the race, ran it, then rode back. Good shit! I did that when I did the Tough Mudder race last year (but I didn't have nearly as far to ride as you did) and I was REALLY wishing I had driven instead of riding the bike on the way home.

Did you check out the 'SV as a sport-tourer' thread on SVRider? There are tons of great setups people have on their SVs in that thread. I'll post the link in the thread you started on SBN.

Getting wisdom teeth pulled is the pits. I had all four of mine yanked while in Mississippi en route to Iraq. I was completely miserable for two weeks. They gave me plenty of narcotics to deal with the pain... but they made me nauseous as hell, so I had to choose between pain or nausea... Fucking miserable. Hopefully your experience is more painless than mine was.

Hopefully your emergency trip to VA goes well?

I took my bike trail riding this weekend. A friend brought me to a place in New Egypt. It was pretty awesome, game me some really good arm pump. It was all off road stuff and a lot of fun. Hopefully next weekend we will be heading down to the Pine Barrens.

random bump- I will be doing track day 5/16 for anyone interested or haven't been- love to met some of you :)

and back on topping- I slabbed all the way down to Virginia in the rain.

WORST RIDE EVER. It rained most of the way back too. I left at 1500 Sunday and returned at 1700 Monday.

All to pick up transcripts for a job.

soggy stop at sheets in winchester


Dug up a perfect fan for my helmet at my folks home! WINNING!


Currently not my bike and I didn't park RIGHT there and couldn't park anywhere neat because it was between class- but you get the idea- only it was way more Londony and rainy :)


Made it home... all this rigamarole for these transcripts... and there was much beer drunk.


a few things I was reminded of:

sometimes a great idea is a great idea- it just sucks in execution
(picking up transcripts and going the extra mile DID get me the job... but damn did it suck)

my water proofing- in 6 hours of rain- is not waterproofing at all.

I need new waterproof gloves- and real actual waterproof boots (I knew those weren't to begin with- it was just actually dealing with soaking toes that sucked)

my aftermarket race rearsets are no good for hours on the slab

Heated gear really truly is a god send.

I offically am over my issue with fugly luggage- the monokey top box is on its way and the top mounting racks are at the house to be repainted- LDFJKFUCKGLSDKJFL not having a waterproof container. I'm done with bungees and wal-mart bags. Done with it I say.


and yuengling can cure almost any ail.
