    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

    Don't mean to intrude on the Mac & Cheese discussion, but that is a nice Yeti

    What do you think so far, descartes?
    There are two kinds of people in this world I can't stand. People that are
    intolerant of other people's cultures and the Dutch.

    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.

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

    Nice bike and congrats...
