    If I had brought my bike to work today, I would have gone for a ride at lunchtime.

    Although that would have stopped me picking up 50 pounds of kitty litter.

    It's always a trade off. Why can't life be fun all the time, dammit?

    No worries though. I'll check that KLR out tonight, and ride it in tomorrow. :thumb

    I'll check out the thread and work out when I'll be able to make it to something. I'm from both the UK and US, but haven't lived in either for almost 10 years (Canada and New Zealand)...

    From your username, I assumed you were likely from the UK or at least one of the other english speaking rugby countries...

    My schedule will be settling down somewhat by the start of next month, so I can start to take some time to do stuff then.

    We PMd the Cornerstone regarding Saturday's episode. The reply we received makes me pretty darn confidant that it won't happen again.

    That makes me so happy. I really like pretty much everything I have had there and really, really, really wanted to keep going back.

    I sense a hogpile in my future.

    :clap

    I rode today, STANDING ON THE PEGS THE WHOLE WAY. :ricky

    That'll be my last "rode to work" comment until fall, as that's the norm, rather than the exception. Have a safe commuting year, everybody.

    EDIT: Crap - I have a conference call to make immediately after lunch, which may prevent me going. I shall watch for your lunch location and time decision with interest, and make it if I can.
