Hair, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing.
And a 28" waist.
Less now, but longer.
@Schlug you probably won't like it. You've been warned.
Not true, the Sammy Hagger hair pulled a lot of chicks back in the day !
Ah, a thing I never noticed. Was Sammy a thing in 1972?
can you drive 55?
Previous neighbors hated me because I occasionally tested my racebikes (motorcycles) in my driveway, but never "targeted".
Was curious why someone would want to hide the fact they have a bicycle. Maybe its how I perceive bicycles, as just an object.
Added some new scars to my shins this weekend. Got both of them... Need to invest in some shin/knee pads.
Its said chicks dig scars
I've got some pretty gnarly ones, hasn't helped me a bit !
Now hair that did when I had it lol
New Tires and a PR on my short lunchtime route.
I went so fast I didn't get a pic until the bike was back on the rack. Why am I driving to my bike ride? Time. If I rode from my house,(IF I survived the moss covered decent.) the last 20 minutes of my "ride" would be pushing my bike up my driveway. Then there would be the oxygen and AED once I got to the top. Better to ride for the full time and then try and stop being dizzy in the car ride up the hill.
Sunny but cool on the ride. Loving the Serfas Drifter tires. Practically silent after the MTB tires.
heh, I bought new shoes. I blew a pedal twice over that mini table...once nose wheelie-ing it, once jumping it. I want some nice slim style mtb platforms for my bmx bike...but I'm not sure which ones will aesthetically please me yet.
Their composites are on the short list.
Yeah. Cruise control.
But, here in SoCal 55 is unheard of as a speed limit. A highway is named that, and there are signs around stating the posted speed limit at 55, but, nobody pays attention.
The length of the 5 through LA is all 55 mph, and narrower than interstate regs say an interstate should be. Makes slipping between the idiots trickier with big bikes.
I thought 55 was closer to '82?
An hour and almost a half today the trainer. French countryside. This video they added slides of the fancy houses or Abby's we passed. Pretty cool idea. Makes it fun. I worked hard for it though. Burned up just shy of 700 calories. And I checked my FTP and it is up, so this training thing is working I guess.
80 is not fast enough around here !
California traffic is either feet down stopped or redline, bouncing off the limiter. When I commuted on my BMW Adventure, I hit the ton every day to and from work. Crazy traffic. I also managed to pass at least two accidents every day coming home. Fewer in the dark on the way to work.
20 years of commuter stories.
I don't have 20 years of commuting stories, but I DID come to really appreciate sharing lanes thru SoCal in the 100k miles I rode there on 2 BMWs.
When you're riding a motorbike. I wish more people would figure out that one more moto = one less car.
Alas, I doubt it'll happen in my lifetime.
I think you are right about the perception as an object. A bicycle can be expensive and is easy to steal and sell. A motorcycle is at a different level.
There is always someone who wants what other people have. Nosey neighbours, meter readers and especially tradesmen or anyone with regular access to people's homes are in the perfect position to see what people have and the level of security protecting it. Someone passing on the street may notice little things like a big red and black van advertising the clients expensive new bike. Innocent observation by most people, but not everyone.
My business (the one I didn't inherit) is personal security. Protecting people, mostly the families of wealthy or influential people who could be leveraged for financial or political gain. 99.99% of the job is risk assessment and reduction. That ^^^^ is security 101.
I am not giving either side any credit in this matter... They sound as bad as each other.
Mornin' Gummee. The way my mind works on matters like this, and many others, is a simple risk vs gain or cost vs benefit analysis.
From my narrow view, I think you made the wrong decision. You don't know why he didn't want the neighbors to know. I don't understand what you stood to lose by shifting to the alley. A little time? To me it seems the cost to you was minimal, and when the gain is a happy customer, that's hard to put a price tag on. Some unhappy customers can be a nightmare. That can have a very high cost.
Just my 2 cents.
