So I'm having a hard time deciding between the bicycle and the motorcycle. Who's in the same boat? I've put 30+ miles on my bicycle this month and 2 on the motorcycle.

I am 100+ on the bicycle and ZERO on the motorcycles. HMMMM..... maybe I should think about that a little bit more. I really like the motorcycles also. Down to two motorcycles now also.

Why, because it was being looked at everyday by multiple people, so it needed to go elsewhere????

I keep thinking about selling the street bike. It spends an extra month in the shed every spring now that I got into bikes, it gets pressed into commuter duty maybe once a week and maybe one overnight ride during the course of the summer.

And the price it might fetch would get me a really nice 6-7" MTB...

I'm fixin to be UP to two MCs... Soon as I get back to Tucson and arrange things.

Learnin to ride sand on the big GS ain't the least expensive way to learn it.

I've ridden the bicycles a grand total of 3x since I moved to Tucson. I'm just not feelin it there. I DO run a bit to make up for it. Its just enough to manage my weight, not enough to lose weight. Stick got a job offer in Sandy Eggo. I just don't know how to make it work since we have a lease till Dec. Oh, and the rents in Sandy Eggo are DOUBLE what we're payin in Tucson.

I tell y'all I miss VA? Well, I do. Stick does too. Too bad its as expensive or more so here than Sandy Eggo! Hung out at the shop I was workin at over the summer drinkin beer last nite. They miss me.

I need a right side 9sp shifter to make my Fetish rideable. Anyone got one layin around?

Shopping for a watch. Does anyone know of a heart rate sensor watch which doesn't require the chest or finger strap? It's really hard to determine from looking at them. Also I have seen some which require you to hold your finger to a sensor. I'm looking for something that you just wear and it shows heart rate.

All I've found so far..

MF-180 (finger strap), and this thing http://www.exmocare.com/

I wear a chest strap and never really notice it.

Hmm. I'm a sucker for shiny things, but I find myself riding the motos less and less. I don't know about miles, but I know I put in more time in the bicycles last year. Probably be the same this year, too.

So I start getting the FZ out of hibernation. Opened petcock, ignition on, fuel pump whirrs away. Ha. Choke. Button. It fires off and rumbles on merrily... until I smell fuel. Seems I have two floats drains that do not want to seal. Fuel dripping on hot exhaust is something I'd rather live without. And I have fettled with it as much as my patience will allow for a day.



The bicycles? Off the rack. Air in tires. Away I go.

"Less is more" has made an irrevovable entrance into my life.

Speaking of motocycles. I went for a nice jaunt today in the Prescot National Forest. Me and my SO got to ride together finally. She did awesome. The first trail we started out on turned from easy two-track to gnarly rocky phucker hill climbing. We both turned around and rode the wider trail. She got to do her first water crossing. Bicycles are planned for tomorrow morning. Great way to start spring!
