so my day was going whell before i heard the honking coming from behing me and a cop in a court services van motions for me to pull over and without missing a beat asks me "so how many more red lights were you planning on running today!?" he wanted to ticket me for all three lights at $150 each but decided to be "nice" and give me a $30 ticket for not having a light on my bike. he says he's a cyclist and doesn't like the laws that affect my car insurance should i get a moving violation on a bicycle; i was still a smart boy and didn't give him my driver's liscence for fear of this. i'm still mad.
i got pulled over by a cube van!

seeing as i have no class tomorrow i could do some lunchables. name a time and place. wes - is that the espresso place next to the spice shop? i think it's called louie's, or something?

Ah ha ha!

The only way they can "affect your insurance" or take points off is if they fail to write "bicycle" in the vehicle type. Under the highway traffic act, only automobiles or street cars infractions can get points off.

If he ticketed you during the day, take the ticket to a JP and get it thrown out. Or go to court on it. The time will be on the ticket. There's no requirement to have a light during daytime, only half an hour after sunrise and half an hour before sunset.

Yeah but the annoyance is still there - to have to go to court etc. Also if anyone who's coming to lunch tomorrow has hook ups, I need some.

I was on that ride....what a blast. We came down Yonge St. from Bloor about 150 strong. It was funny cause the group kinda spread out and the people walking on Yonge were like "Holy crap theres a naked guy riding a bi..HOLY CRAP! Its a mob" The door men at Sanctuary let us in naked. Nothing like a bunch of naked messengers strolling around a goth bar.

^^^^^^^^ Now THAT sounds like a party. I remember at that weekend the guy riding the race naked..... damn it was a fun week-end. Keith it's occurred to me we may have met that week-end in passing.

Wes, man that's a solid for those pictures being hosted. I see what you mean by mid jpeg being more than sufficient for the weeb. Now I'll get the party ones going. I love digital, you can take a million shots and take only the best. With film that gets REALLY expensive if you're not a professional with your gear or connections. Practice practice practice the actions shots....I'm not pleased with my lack of good riding pics.

Jeremy ... what did you reply when he asked you that classic question? "All of them?"..

Pulled the trigger and got the Shimano triple strap MTN shoes 99 bucks at Velotique, no more 44's but at least one more pair of 45's. Ahhhh clipless again at last...and hooked up my cateye wireless....fun toy.

I know I suck, but I was reminded of prior commitments this morning, so I can't make it. Next time!

No worries!

And if your shoes are a wee bit too big, you might want to try going to MEC and testing out some insoles. I knew I wanted insoles for my last shoes and so I bought both at the same time. The best combo wound up being my size insoles with a size larger shoe.

Glad that he didn't slap you with the moving violation tickets-30 bucks isn't too bad. I just got a notification that I have to appear before some sort of court justice to defend my license. No more points left-and I don't even drive! Hope they don't suspend it.

Thanks for that .... I got the last 44's I meant that if someone else was lookin for some shoes.
Is it possible for me to FTP the other pictures to your server or would you have to do something to them via PShop. Which automated gallery is that? I use PS all the time but almost never the automated stuff except to do an action.

Just the fact you don't drive should make for an interesting court case. You got a lawyer?

I don't think it's really court, just have to go talk to some dude about my apparent dissrespect for the highway traffic act. I think they can force me to do some driver education/brainwashing if they feel the urge, or just suspend my license for a while. Should be amusing whatever the outcome. I'm going to have a hard time making myself seem remorseful...I would love to make these guys ride a few hundred rush hour km in my cycling shoes.

Way ahead of you!

edit: since turned brakeless and then retired. I still have that brake and fork kicking around for another project but I don't really ride with brakes anymore... Plus my brother was borrowing that wheelset to use on his crappy commuter and left it around unlocked and got the bike stolen ($10 bike, ~$200 wheelset)... that and the fork is oogly! That was an awesomely fun bike to ride around in the winter though....

Hey cavernmech,

I purchased a bunch of raffle tickets from the website via paypal. Will I be receiving the tickets in the mail? Who's in charge of the paypal raffle tickets?

Thanks.

Well, in order to add them to the current gallery I would have to run the photoshop script on them again. I just used one of the default photoshop cs ones at File -> Autmate -> Web Photo Gallery. I think it was called Horizontal Grey or something, but I'm not sure as I only have PS7 at work. If you want me to add more we can just use the same process. It only took me about 10 minutes to download them, run the script and then start uploading the directory to my server.
