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

Damn Roadies...

Then of course the first responder ruins a sentimental moment, and then you overanalyze and yap from the bench, typical BF. No wonder I have not posted in almost 6 years.
It gets much easier when you learn which posters to ignore. Just sayin'.....

Yeah, I peaked my head in about a year ago when I was looking to replace my subs with something that freed up more cargo space. The For Sale thread over there is top notch.

There's been days when I want to sell it and get something smaller, but it's my baby - the first new car I ever bought. Plus its nice to have if I ever want to go play in the desert.
