Got back from work in time to catch up with the Loco bunch and the leaner worked out great even at 85 indicated speed and did not slow me much except for those 15-20 mph right handers. Still could run 25-30, so that's not bad at all.

Had fun. Beautiful day out there. Had the cfs for a change of pace.




While good , it ain't a burger or a rib.

Dave. I think this weekend is supposed to be good. After our "drought buster" rains Tuesday and Wednesday might be a good weekend to ride. lol Let's make an effort to do something. We could just stay local and eat at the bunkhouse.

Visited the doc today for a general "wellness" visit (I call it a checkup). Mentioned my shoulder has been bugging me for a while...and now I get to do some PT exercises for 4 weeks. He's hoping that will do the trick. Minor rotator cuff issue.

Oh well, glad I didn't mountain bike with my daughter yesterday. I'd have really been hurting today.

I wouldn't mind riding over to Loco this weekend, but I've got to get over this crud I've gotten first. This 50 one day and 25 the next has taken it's toll on me. In weather like that, there are days when I wish I had a desk job.....oh hell no.......what am I thinking.
