    The guy who posted that is always jabbing at me for some reason. It's probably my supercilious hand-on-the-chin avatar that turned him off a while back. I'd ignore it.

    Thanks for all the responses, everyone. I was unaware of how many of you have actually been involved in crashes.

    Hey...not fa nuttin', but this morning's ride to work was spectacular, and the ride home was almost as good. It may be Fall, but there are still some decent mornings to get out on the cycle.
