They arrived!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel like a kid at Christmas, my bikes arrived from the states. Just took a quick ride around the block!!


Got the Kona JTS & Lemond Sarthe assembled, Not a scratch from the moving company. Trek madone awaits this weekend for her turn.

Yep its like sex, never forget how and absence just makes it seem better.

No Offense meant or implied towards my Lovely Bride. But she's in the US and I- well, have plans.......

I can't believe you left the Madone to last

Enjoy the rides!

Actually it's R.P., but everyone calls it P.I..

I'd like to see a video of a cyclist climbing a nice mountain road when a Victory Liner goes by.

Actually, I'm Air force, been thru Clark AFB back in 69 on the way to the 'big hurt' RVN.

I took the Lemomd for a 10 miler this a.m., started at the crack of dawn - I've been here 3 months and still not acclimated to the heat/humidity. Even at that time of day. I ran out of water at 8 miles, and drank a full bottle when i got back.

Some nice roads on the northern Island here in cebu, gonna try them this weekend, a 25 miler. I got a driver, so I got a permanet SAG wagon.

Would love to see some pics!! Really glad to hear the bikes got there safely. I bet the Madone is pretty restless.

Paulie,
I think you have the coordinate slightly off:
PI can be found at N4242.06378, W08951.97686
At least according to folks on this forum...
