This place is made up of a lot of great fellow inmates. Too bad it's spoiled by the occasional self-righteous indignant idiot that just has to put in his two cents (even when it completely off point).

A few days ago, a fellow inmate makes a comment about me riding with the "wrong tires" in muddy conditions and my reply is somehow interpreted as me not respecting my buddies by not replacing an 80/20 tire with 60% tread left with knobbier tires. That's followed by some guy blaming his injuries on his motorcycle! Some of you guys are just too much!



Now back on topic....
Here's a recent ride on a barrier island off the coast of North Carolina along the Intracoastal Waterway at sunset.

Since you don't have a clue about tyres, could you recommend an oil then?

Would it be more considerate if I ride behind them so they don't have to smell my burnt nuts?

It's even better in French, as Ti ti caca means little little poo.

I hate wet boots. Hate 'em.



Plus, it's fun to act goony occasionally. Although my wife doesn't think it's an act.
