    I think by "inter-city" he meant in between cities, not in heavy traffic. I used to ride about that fast between Monmouth and Salem where I had ballet rehearsals most nights of the week, when I was...

    Is that a real bike jersey? If so it's the first one I've ever wanted.

    Lots of hillbillies where I live and ride. They don't bug me, and as far as I know I don't bug them.

    I would probably like one, but I fear it would be really foamy after riding up on the gated logging roads. Or on the pretty little trail pictured in the OP. Maybe you could find a palatable wine in...

    I've never seen one. I first learned about them reading Yehuda Moon cartoons.

    Lots of the roads around here have memorials of flowers, crosses, or signs for people who died there, but they were...

    I, like Bob, have the Bordo. I really like it for it's flexibility and easy storage. No more U locks for me.

    I use all of my gears. 20 on the Fargo, I think 27 on the Rocky Mountain. As low as 18 gear inches Fargo and 16 on the Rocky Mountain. I don't care about the other end of the range, I'm probably...

    Do I understand right, you were running so hard you passed out and broke your collar bone? Wow. I've figuratively crashed and burned whilst running, but from tripping, not from passing out. I'm...

    A ten mile hilly run last Tuesday kept me from riding last Wednesday. I got out of bed at the right time to do my hybrid commute, staggered around a bit, and went back to bed for another hour and...

    A bicycle would be a lot easier to pass than a horse and buggy, for a car driver.

    It's better than starting a new thread on the same topic because it won't have wasted all of the suggestions and points that were made previously. I'm on one forum (first generation Honda Insights)...

    My LBS in Salem wouldn't order a bike for me until I could test ride the different sizes. Since they didn't stock Fargos, he knew that would probably cost him a sale, but he did it anyway and was...

    I've done a few multi-day tours on my bikes, a '70 Bonneville and (more often) a BMW R65 with Windjammer and and cases. I don't like to go over about 4-500 miles in a day though. It starts feeling...

    The ratio I had remembered from older DOT data was a 1:6 ratio for auto:cyclist fatalities, so 10:1 is still in the ball park. And easier to remember. Cars to motorcycles was more like 1:30 but...

    That's weird how the shorts are sexier being flashed from beneath the skirt than they would be with no skirt at all. I'm messed up.

    I go much faster on the logging road descents, though I admit it's not too smart. The banked twisties at Black Rock were amazing, and I was barely getting the hang of going around them quickly...

    The time I got stopped for being on Weyerhauser land during fire season, I was out running with my dog and it was a state cop that stopped me and told me I wasn't supposed to be there. I had a good...

    Blackrock Mountain Bike Association | Banzai Downhill

    Cool, I did not know that route existed. And it even has one end in Oregon. I wonder if the many dual-sport motorcyclists I know know of it.

    Thanks for the link.
