    So bored...

    Ordered a hitch on Amazon so I can get rid of the strap rack once and for all. It should arrive today, whenever UPS comes around. In the mean time, I'm bored. I've made all the useful posts I can think of so now I can only move on to useless posts.

    I don't want to watch TV, I don't want to read, I don't want to work on anything... I really shouldn't ride since I've rode the last 5 days in a row and my legs are fried.

    Blah.

    go wash the undercarriage of your car, then sweep your garage or driveway That way it will be clean for you to work later.

    Put your photochop skills to work in this thread. I was hoping it would take off like the squirrel thread.

    I did consider shopping for new pedals, but no one local carries any decent flat mountain pedals. I sat down and played the one song I know on guitar--actually, I only played part of it because it got boring really fast.
    If you can't get under it to wash it, how are you going to get under it to install the hitch?

    The hitch only involves the very back.

    Then only wash the very back. I would rather work on something clean than dirty. At the very least, see if you can find the install instructions online and make sure you have the tools needed. Maybe go ahead and loosen any fasterners to make sure they are not seized, apply PB Blaster to stuck fasteners, etc. Or you could just stay here and shoot down any suggestive comments we have with reasons not to do things. ;-)

    Yeah, I kinda like the last suggestion best. Especially since I said in my initial post that I don't want to work on anything =)

    I actually looked up the install instructions last night and memorized them. I was bored then, too.

    If you want to smell terrific, a bidet is very useful
