    Didn't see it in this thread...any of you do breakfast runs to Gronsky's Milk House in High Bridge?

    Love sitting at the bar and just watching the waffle batter drip messily off the irons and seeing the amount the butter the potatoes sit in on the griddle.

    Never saw bigger pancakes than are made there. And the "theme" ones are pretty creative.

    Anyone following the Dakar Rally? Yesterday's sand dunes were RIDICULOUS!
    The Hondas are doing pretty well. Bikes are looking sweet. Sort of like my little rally bike!

    The Guardian today had some pictures from days 1 to 7 of the Dakar Rally here. I like this one:

    Well, if there is no snow between now and the weekend (i.e., no SALT), I'd be up for a big bike ride down to Pic-A-Lilli's for some wings.
    Will have to be back before 4, though. Got to watch the Eagles game. GO EAGLES!

    I have been watching Dakar and SX. Its a shame they only cover 1/2 worth of it, at random times. I think the bike Dakar stuff should be an hour alone. I am catching up on the DVR too.

    SX was awesome this weekend.

    I was out in the woods on the bicycle this afternoon. Pretty nice. Felt good to be out in the woods again. Dakar this year has been fantastic. Cant ever remember the early stages being so difficult.

    Those dunes stages are rough. Never seen hills that all four classes have trouble making it up. Early stages had them.

    John, Great to hear! Sounds like the new parts are working good.

    Went skiing today with my buddy Harry (and vtwinp and Tim), and between us we had 3 titanium and plastic knees. Good luck with your hip replacement! You will be pretty happy when you are pain-free again.
    Dakar was a little disappointing the past two days. A stage cancelation for the bikes, and a knee injury for Barreda that took out the leading Honda. Still have a chance for a 2nd place in between the KTMs.
    Nice bike, though:
