    Only Husqvarna's that I (as the decider of these decisions) will allow are dual sports & motards. And if those become acceptable, I'll be the first posting pics of the new (to me) DRZ.


    I got out for a short urban ride today, just messing around stairs & gaps here & there. School is out, so I expect my two free days each week will involve some biking. Maybe I can teach myself the timing that scrub has perfected in getting those pictures.

    Also the weather down here has been remarkable. Going for a hike up in the mountains tomorrow & it's supposed to be 70 degrees!! If only my friends were MTBers

    Enjoy the free days!

    30 second timer, it then takes 10 shots is how I get most of them.

    Ya'll don't see the outtakes, when I'm not getting the timing right, or end up on my ass in the dirt.

    The latter of those should definitely be included

    I bet that 10 shot burst helps a lot. My camera has a 30 second option with a 3 shot burst, I'll give that one a try next time I come up on something photo-worthy. Thanks for the advice!

    Wood is our backup and 'knock-the-chill-off-and-the-bill-down' adjunct. Of course we live in the land of cheap hydropower, otherwise it would be more imperitive. Still, 20+ acres of timber generates a lot of dead-and-down in a year and I'm scrambling to keep up.

    I'm spoiling myself after about 30 years of wrestling the old beast: a big ol' 4.5 cu in Lombard manual oiler that I bought used and rebuilt.

    Hey, if it works...

    We've only got a small place, but enough stuff came down during the storms last year (around the neighborhood as well) it just made more sense to go buy my own vs. pay someone else to do it or struggle with my Silky saw. Figured if I'm buying one, may as well get something of a halfway decent size and power for home use. The little thing works great for trailside stuff, but big stuff is too much a pain.

    We actually have to big Norwegian maples that we are having an arborist come and trim a bunch of stuff off - stuff in and around power and phone lines that I don't want to screw around with. That should get rid of the big dangerous bits for the moment.

    With Sandy, I had sugar maple go down, and a pine tree go down, stupidly cut both apart limbs, trunk and all with a handsaw.

    Hey, it works, just a lot more labor intensive. No need for crossfit crap that way.

    That's why we are going to have a pro take care of the dead and big stuff up around the lines in our maples - don't want them taking down the lines, and less stuff to help pull the whole thing down that way.

    8 days two years in a row with no power due to stuff from those trees taking the lines out. Power Co. and the city are being uncooperative about doing it, so we're jsut going to take care of it ourselves.

    It was a fun challenge, being that my chainsaw bit the bullet last year with Irene.

    Last year: 7 days with Irene
    This year: 11 days without power.

    My first ride today on the new bike. Did Chiva falls which is a technical double track. Climbing on that bike kind of sucks, but I'll get used to it ...eventually. It handles well and I love bombing it down hills.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    My 2nd ride was today I have gone thru King Faisal St, Giza .. It was so cold - for me - it is 15°C .. The Ride was 10.6 KM and it took me 50 min and there was no bridges but the road wasn't that good. I am kinda tired and It was so cold and the air making me feel some sort of headaches but my legs doesn't hurt.

    The front wheel still wobble and the both wheels make a sound all the time with the Disk Brakes cuz the rear one is broken and the front wheel wobble so it touches the Brakes, Also the wheel doesn't move smoothly and it's size is bigger .. Well, I think that ride wasn't that bad for a bike like this

    Managed to get out on the trails three times in the last week or so, most recently with a friend who had never been MTBing before. He loved it & hasn't stopped asking me to go back out with him, but the bastard gave me a nasty flu & I've been holed up in the house the last few days trying to get over it. Johnny Law is in town for the holidays so I'm hoping to get back to my roots (pun intended ) ASAP.

    You know, assuming we don't all die tomorrow.

    Pataptsco park. Riding My trek fuel ex down the soapstone trail when out of nowhere Comes a small tree stump. Due to my foolishness I was unaware of what usually would be no big deal, and next thing I know I'm flipping over face first, and land on the handlebars. But I didn't just land on some ordinary part of my body; I landed on my balls. My buddy, luke, whom was following behind me; didn't have time to stop, and rammed into my front weel, further shoving the handlebars into my crotch. After 10 minutes of rest, I continue on the trail with him, and have a great time. I come home after a long, painful day of cycling to find that my scrotum was bleeding quite badly. I am fine now.

    325 miles. The great allegheny passage (141 miles) connects with the topath to form a trail 325 miles long from washington, DC to pittsburgh, PA. not exactly mountain biking, which I more frequently take part in, but still. DAMN. It was a good experience.
