Without bikes for almost 2 weeks. Shouldn't happen to a dog.

Getting packed out to move here in a few days. Have been getting the bikes on the stand, cleaning them and photographing them for posterity in case of damage or anything.

I'll be without a bike of any kind for probably 10 days or so. I was smart enough to stage my Mu P8 to the place I'm moving so as soon as I show up I can ride like the wind.

After that no other bikes will probably show up for a month. I'm floating the idea of buying a big suitcase and taking the Speed P8 with me on the plane but I'm shipping my car to mainland Japan and lugging myself and huge suitcases with family in tow to the port area and our very small car seems pretty stupid from where I stand.

Sure am gonna miss this baby. Took the TT out for a 30 minute ride and it ended up taking 2 hours. Hotter than heck in the middle of the day but I really hammered out a good ride. Even passed a roadie in full gear. I saw him come back for revenge but I turned before he passed me so he never got his pride back.

The Speed TT shined up nice!

Woah! That is beyond Trick! If they ever do MI 4 there should be a folding bike battle and after Phelps wins he just folds it up and gets on a train

I have just moved and the 3 folders plus one compact bikes were all accessable due to their small size amoungt the many boxs. This made storage alot easier until we got sorted out. Four full sized bikes would have took up alot more room.
