Eating good is over rated. I'd rather have a nice ride and be skinny

That's when you buy a case, because it takes two to make a meal. And of course, always go with Marauchin

Whoa...talk about getting off topic.

re: ramen- ever read the back of those packages? not that mac and cheese is much better though....

Thanks for the compliments on the bike. I had an opportunity to ride around a little last night after I picked it up. So far no complaints. Light and quick steering. Still getting used to the egg beaters. I will hopefully be able to hit the trails in a major way soon and will give a full report. Thanks.

I can get it for 10 cents a packet dude. You are getting ripped at 12.5 cents a packet.

This is a very casual site. No rules about being on topic here. Just have fun a relax...

Nice bike and congrats...
