Otherwise I make pathetically frail and weak elf thief types. I just like stealing stuff in elder scrolls I guess. I find archery really tough at the start unless you have an unapproachable vantage point, otherwise they just run up to you and you have to switch to the sword anyways. I was never really into spells either.

I've only played through the first few quests though and have no idea how to successfully do the disposition game. The horses and fast travel are much needed additions though.

How similar do your characters look to you? Mine is pretty close, the game really lets you change every facial detail.

Anyways, I should be at CM for 6pm.

btw. if anyone is going on the FFL ride tomorrow, keep in mind that it's supposed to be 25 and sunny. If you burn easily, bring sunscreen.

So I just installed the aero bars and took them for a test ride. All of a sudden, my saddle feels too low. Did you (Operator or anyone else who has used these craaazy things) notice the same thing? Is it just a feel thing that'll go away quickly or should I make some adjustments? I'll have tools on me tomorrow so I can change things either way, but I'd like to make any adjustments tonight if they're required.

You typically move forward on your seat when on the aerobars, you probably do need to move your seat up a bit but then that screws your position for off the aer0bars. Tri guys have those crazy fast foward seatposts.

I'd say leave it for now and then mess with it after the ride (72ks on bad fit = not cool).
