I was recently reminded of the ancient city of Memphis in lower Egypt. Rocking little city in 3100BC. Great music scene. Good bars, fine recording studios, excellent session musicians. Good access to those pyramids and temples too. Did those Tenneesee settlers name their town after the one in Egypt?

Your ten posts are supposed to be worthwhile posts and not junk posts. Go introduce yourselves in the Introductions forum. Then greet other new forum members.

Hmm, a quality/volume ratio might be a game changer. I'm nominating @T-Mar for the highest ratio. Lowest? I shall cast no aspersions.

I got to my post total by responding to stuff like this, often.

I'm hoping we don't get to the point that we need post police.

I had them about 8 years ago and I wasn't impressed. They used dry rub and they weren't very meaty. I don't mind dry rub but I'm more of a sauce guy myself seeing as I'm from St. Louis.

You just gotta talk about bikes. Tell us a story about a ride, or yourselves, or ask what kind of freewheel to get. It's not hard.
