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

Does garden fresh asparagus pee smell the same as grocery store asparagus pee? Asking for a friend.

It's a total pain in the ass. I was getting some rub from Rob's 50mm clinchers because there was so little clearance. Putting the bike in my truck jacked up the alignment.

That was the impetus for rebuilding the Enve 65mm with a G3 and getting that closeout 45mm front. I also opened up the brakes a bit. That setup has been working well.

Nah, gotta know your audience. I think that I've got exactly two non-BF FB friends that would show any real interest in bike-weenie stuff.

Not that I spend much time on FB these days - it really has become a repository for kids pics for the benefit of the family.
that's probably the best use of bookface. much better than the chain letters, and supplement pushing.

I'm always amazed as the speed of asparagus stank, from plate to bladder - the effect seems to be almost instantaneous. It's like magic. Horrible, smelly magic.

After I picked it today, I did have a couple spears raw. Not bad but I still prefer them roasted.

Raw vegetables are for pig slop.

Roasted. But, roasted, al dente with some life and tumescence still left in them; otherwise throw it all to the pigs.

Looks like the cleft of a giant peach. Fuzzy one at that.

BTW--peaches are also good roasted, in case y'all haven't tried them. Al dente still applies, though. Sorry. I know all you midwesterners love your corn creamed (yuk!) and your vegetables flogged to abject submission.

I have 3 addiction tabs open at the moment, and another one waiting in the wings. I wonder if I will ever again read anything real.

These things can easily go the other way, though. I have stories.

So, there is a motorcycle story for you. All true, of course. I'm just trying to show you that I, too, have a bit of machismo in my soul despite loving pretty roses.

I'm tired now. I think I'll go have a burrito or two. No asparagus tonight, I'm afraid.
