    It was obviously said in jest and the op didn't take offense, so why on earth are you? Don't be so delicate. This is the internet after all.




    Wait. You're not his girlfriend, are you?:lol3

    Finally, replaced the part on the bike. Well it's ordered and on the way for delivery later this week. Should have it nursed up and looking sweet by the weekend.

    And a little update for anyone who is wondering...

    My bruises and scrapes healed up nicely. Would never know I took a spill. Am positive it will not be my last.

    As for Tom and I... eh, not so well.

    Enjoyed the winter and looking forward to warmer weather. Thanks for the humor. Was fun to read your comments. Ride safe everyone and have a blast!
