Addiction LXV

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Dallas has a YUGE indian community. I could go to 5+ different indian restaurants and not see the same item on any of the large menus.
Noted.

I wonder if @indyfabz got to hook up with Lucy. He picked great weather for his tour.

Indeed, and thank you. Round 3 today. Road race down there, and it's not flat.

Speaking of mobile audio, I just bought a JBL Flip 4 portable microphone-speaker. My purpose is only for conducting teleconferences with a group around the table and using my cell phone. Worked great last week. I can see how great this little thing would be at the beach or on a picnic for music. Bluetooth connection to the phone. Looks like the boom box has come of age.

If you're serious about mobile audio, check out the Focal flax cones.

These are superb.

Pair them with something that allows for some DSP phase and alignment correction, and add some sound proofing to your vehicle.

You'd be surprised.

I've been known to crack a beer and just listen in my driveway, lol.

Do they fit in a bottle cage? Trickle charge via USB solar panel?

This one has a USB charger wired to a dynamo hub.

No goats, but we did see a lot of cattle, lots of wildflowers and this chicken on our ride around Chappell Hill yesterday.
