    Not for nuthin, but my brother did a 10 day trip on his Kawasaki Concourse last year, from NY to Yosemite, down into Colorado, and then back, and he lamented his ass pain far longer than I have from any bike ride. Granted, he took a friend who spent time in the Navy Seals........

    That's a shame. It was good race for around 3/5ths of it, then DE on the Triumph took over. Dude can ride, and the little bit of showboating he did was actually rather awesome. It was strictly devoted to his fans around the track, and I enjoyed the hell out of it, and I normally detest that behavior.

    Just had one. Recovery pilsner.

    I think it is sort of a Maryland/Mid-Atlantic thing.

    I'm doing a century for the Tour de Cure next weekend so figured I'd better try to get a long ride in to see how I could do. Set out hoping for a metric this morning. I made it 57 miles. Granted I never stopped once and only had one protein bar and nothing to eat before hand...and there were 20 mile per hour wind gusts, but I still think I'm in trouble.

    On the upside, with the wind at my back, I was pushing 40mph on a flat and could have done more but ran out of gears. We won't discuss what I was doing into the wind.
    Hey guys, lets go play bikes!

Six full century days, a 65 mile ride home from my folks on the 7th day. Only one day with more than 8k ft of climbing, which the old plan had two days at 9k. Oh, and there is a ferry ride to cross from NY to Vermont.

    I am liking this. And I wouldn't have thought of it with out all of you. You folks are the best.
    This sounds fairly reasonable. What the hell?

    Now we're talking. Six century days instead of seven . . . . a vast improvement in the plan. Why didn't I think of that?

    he must have been going much longer distances, at least in the boring parts. it's going to be on a "big fat american twin" cruiser and i have a bit off extra padding so my butt does ok on long trips. there will also be lots of stopping and walking around and photo taking.

    I saw your first post, and I'm sorry to say, I didn't get it. I get it now, and now I'm just amazed.

    No. Six centuries versus eight 125 mile days.

    It's better when you say 8 200K days.

    Honestly, even when I typed "1000 miles in 8 days" I really saw how ridiculous it sounded. 8 x 200k sounds even worse.

I said "But it's going to start out with brakes." He tried it one more time and I said "Dude. I don't care if he takes the brakes off as soon as the bike goes through the door to the parking lot and he borrows a wrench from us to do it. No bike is leaving my shop unless it's safe to ride and that includes brakes. Now, you can help me adjust these and finish up the bike or I can find something else for you to do." And what do you know? The homeless friend actually decided he liked being able to stop and he kept the brakes on. I told them this story at my interview on Monday and I said "Some things I just don't compromise on. Safety is one of them." So, they know what they're getting into by hiring me. Technically though I guess it's really Lester's bike shop not mine. I just kind of forget that sometimes when I'm cracking the whip.

    H
    Some topics are more female specific than cyclist specific and they're more comfortably asked and more quickly answered by women based on their experience and opinions rather than forcing the poster to wade through calls for photos of "the affected area" and comments that the thread is "useless" without such photos. Several excellent examples can be found by searching for the words "wife" or "girlfriend" plus "saddle" although adding "crotch" would guarantee even better results. Go ahead. Just for fun.

    There is someone else on these forums who either has just gone through a stint or is still doing one with a big box store. If I can dredge up his name, I'll let you know so you can compare notes.

    Now, what's your assembly skill at setting up gym equipment?
    Dream. Dare. Do.
