    observations from todays ride[a good one]

    dont know how many miles but is was about an hour. found out i got muscles in my butt i didnt know i hadlegs felt weak after i got off,also i dont care for the twist grip shift on this bike.it never is accurate, or dead on the numbers. shift indicator for the front derailleur is always between numbers.but besides that was a lot of fun.does wear a fat man out1

    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Working out can be fun. I did 75 minutes of riding and then did a 2 + miles run and now taking the wife out for a Mother's Day Dinner while the children are shopping for a gift they want to get her.

    I hauled my 300lbs through 52 miles of the Texas Hill Country. Nearly 4 hours in the saddle will wear out anyone, and I was no exception. It wore out my bike too. My Big Sur was creaking for forgiveness near the end. I need to get a new ride.
