^^ Yeah, and they actually post real thoughts and pictures of stuff like their kids and fast motorsickles and fish and stuff . . . not just selfies of their nostril hairs.

Where's the fun in that?



I'll start posting pictures of fast motorscooters when I have one...that old 250 is a big of a pig, but it'll do for now.

I assume you got lost when looking for your mountain bike, and then even more lost when you started riding...

Finished watching the men's runs at the Cairns World Cup yesterday at lunchtime. Gad, what a brutal course - - mud & roots and a gnarly rock section. You know it's tough when it's making the pros look human. Besides the racing action, highlight had to be (as usual) Rob Warner's commentary. A couple of gems:

" . . . [that was] messier than cooking a microwave burger in a trouser press!"

". . . he's all over the place - - he's off-line like a Russian border."

Today's the day. Ordering my first ~new~ mountain bike. I've always bought used for whatever reason, but no more.

I could not be more excited.

She's pretty.
