Im BACK

After a long break...about 6 months off...due solely to laziness and bitter cold, I returned to the saddle today. I arrived only to find my co-worker had ridden in too.

Go Brooks Saddles go!!!!

That's funny. I'm not sure I ever see another Brooks on my commutes. I left my rain cover on mine today, since it sits outside.

Shame on you !!. For missing riding for 6 months due to pure laziness..I can fully understand if a person misses out on riding due to such things as illness or injuries.
But laziness ??..give me a break man.

Yeah...I know.....guilty as charged, its a poor excuse, but it is what it is. The Lazi part was Sept-Dec.


Jan-March was just to brutally cold to ride. I've done it before but I just don't enjoy it

I don't blame you...This was one of the coldest winters in 20 years with some very messy road conditions.. It wasn't easy for me to ride everyday, but I just kept pushing on. It was a test of will power for me. I am glad spring is here now.

My goal this winter was to ride at least once a week at a minimum, which even though it was an ugly winter, I was able to do...
Its starting to "feel" like spring here, thank goodness...

Welome back. You were one of the first subscribers I corresponded with on the Forums when I joined in 2008. I think it was on a thread, not a PM's, about winter eyewear and fogging. I haven't changed my opinion, and continue to actively post about it.
