Can't say I'm thrilled with your turning my fuel diatribe into a personal attack. Kind of like you saying "I drive a little car because I, in fact, do have a little penis". Nobody cares, or wants to hear, about your shortcomings.

And a file photo from 3 years ago? You know that will only invoke more problems.

Somebody has to try and take the high road here.

I can handle dirt & gravel on my commuter, but nothing too deep.

You doing primarily pavement?

Do love me a good cheesesteak.
This is going to be our first Philly ride of the year so we are going to take a direct (I-95) route down. Later in the year once it warms up a bit we will be doing more back roads. Feel free to tag along and I'm 100% certain that no bung holes will be harmed during this or any other rides.

That actually depends on the hot sauce you put on the sandwich.

I'd take the subway more often if I wasn't convinced I'd wind up making Bernie Goetz look like Gandhi.

I've been known to walk crosstown and take the bus, which increases trip time to about 2.5 times that of the subway. I once tried doing that going up to the bus terminal uptown and it took three hours.

Nothing like a motorcycle to get me to office and to my clients quickly and with my sanity intact.
It's not THAT bad. lol I take the bus crosstown and then hop on an uptown train one stop, best commute ever even though the bus is now taking longer and longer and longer. I might fork over the $200 a month for parking at our work garage soon, for double the price its worth not having to wait, or smell, or deal with anyone other than myself, and Ill get to work a lot quicker.

If you look close you can see the Hybrid badge, and I have a big back seat if anyone wants to send a lady friend to confirm my penis size.

Tough Mudder

Has anyone here done a "Tough Mudder" race?

I'm considering entering for one in VT in July, with some buddies from CT and Mass.

I understand there's a tri-state one in October, but I can't realistically plan that far out.

Is anyone training for one?

Wow, nice beadlocks, I would recommend bigger tires before you scratch them ...

And a pirate sticker on the bumper, that must scare the shit out of pedestrians....

A friend of mine tried that without training properly and ended up in the hospital for several days. Apparently five miles a day on a treadmill just didn't cut it.

PS, Berzerk's truck doesn't look right - I think it needs a Confederate flag.

This is a NYC commuter's thread, not a TOR game. I think that file photos are allowed!

As far as taking the high road, I'd suggest getting a sense of humor. And stop the nonsense debate about fuel economy and motorcycles. That's about as boring as an oil thread....

Start a DocGonzo thread here in Regional and have fun telling everyone what they can and cannot discuss.

PS, I like the art of substitution in your tag today. Out with taxicab yellow, in with GS yellow. 'twas a shame you couldn't stand letting the new guy get into the game.

Or as boring as someone repeatedly mentioning someone's penis? You seem to have a thing about that. Have a pied a terre on Christopher St by any chance?
