    Reason #326 why fenders are great, great things.



    This guy, and his thousands of little buddies all over the !@#$ing roads. I mean seriously, the sheer amount of guts I had to clean off my ride this weekend...
    Too much talk, not enough pedal.

    They always come out this time of year, but I don't remember them being this numerous. I shouldn't complain too much though, because this is nothing compared to the seven year cicada up in DC/Maryland, though. That was like riding through a popcorn popper at times... ugh.
