    Had a neat ride this arvo

    Fixed a GPS do the handle bars and worked out that I can do around 42kph. Best part was going down the road and have a horse trot alongside me. Now that never ever happened in a car.
    School years were the best days of my life. I used to get caned by middle aged women wearing high heels, stocking and glasses. Now I have to pay for it.

    Go HD!
    Imagine what the horse told his friends
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    Lots of cool things happen on bikes that never happen in a car.

    Had an even better ride this arvo. Got a half day off today so I thought I'd ride home the long way. I really didn't think I'd make it and I was right. Ended up doing 5.5 Km. May sound nothing to most of youse but I'm recovering after a 12 year forced stint of sitting on my arse.

    I finally had to stop about 200 metres from home. Saw more nifty stuff too, but the biggest deal... well, I raised my first sweat in 12 years... damned near making me shed a tear. I think I'm on the mend.... yahhhhhhooooooooooooo.

    Well, I clipped a neat minute off the trip today. Also noticed that we had a burned out public hall at the end of my street. You really do see more on a bike.

    If everyone rode bikes there would be no need for therapy.

    Depends what sort of thereapy my pair of nemiseses. I had two incidents with phone toting dorks in cars. It really does bother me about the quality of drivers in this town.
