Took the Tenere down to Bikes, Blues, and BBQ in Fayetteville, AR this past week. Had a blast down there and got to hang out with some good friends again. Also got to go from the extreme of a 400,000 bike rally and the chaos of Dickson street to some backroads that I had all to myself. In the end I had 1445 miles on the trip meter and now have 1947 miles on the Tenere odometer. Nice way to break in the new bike.

I think I'd rather take the fall than use their toilet paper.

This is at Divisadero. Both, the cable car and ziplines are pretty recent installations...less than 2 years.

The cable car is 3 km long and it's a beautiful ride.



The zipline is a series of 5 or 7 lines totaling 3 km. The longest one is 1,100 meters and you reach a speed between 95 and 105 km/hr. It's a total blast!!! The ground is about 200 meters below!






You can also get on a plane that takes you for a ride over the canyon. Here's a short video of our trip. The pilot allowed us to place the Gopro camera under the wing.

It was an amazing trip.

Ahh, I was there in 08. Divisadero was a busy spot because of the train stop and
how scenic it is.

You are right. It is an amazing ride and for us no police enforcement at all. Like riding
on a private road. Makes me grin typing this how fun those roads were.

I guess as long as you land in the silt the zip line would be safe.

That's why I've always liked that shot.
Lighting? Camera angle? I don't know. Thanks for not saying "You don't look as fat".

Same trip, still have the Budda going on.






No those socks are not for sale. Just eat your hearts out.

Fixt.

It's a curse. I should have never bought the blue Tenere.
