panniers and a trailer-gonna make me strong!

Got my M-wave panniers today,got them mounted,then loaded my boxer pup in the trailer-(she's about 45lbs) and we went for a ride around town,only picked up a few things at the store.but I really like the set back on these bags,no heel strike.and they are big enough to put some groceries in.glad I changed the double crank to a triple.pup was getting hard to pull up hills.

Congratulations, not just for the new addition but for biking in the Nebraskan panhandle. I'm from NW Kansas, and there isn't much biking in those parts unless one of those cross-country/cross-state rides roll through town.

After you've been utility cycling for a while, you don't notice the weight anymore...unless you strip the bike down and go for a ride.

what is the black thing on the handlebar that has a red spot? very nice setup. i waaaaaaaaaaant it.
i've been all through the bootheel, from so.dak. to sidney. only places i can think of that could have a jc or
college are chadron and scottsbluff? i do love the prairies and emigrant trails.

you should take a pic of the pup in the trailer and post it.

you might harness her to the stem like a sled dog to help you up the hills.
after a bit of that, though, she might do a sitdown strike!!

over at harrison has monster burgers at their drugstore/restaurant. dude.
no way i could get a whole one down. i had a postcard of one and it,
i swear, looked like 5 huge buffalo chips from really well fed buffaloes with cheese stacked on a bun. woof.
real nice folks, even the customers.
we have a restaurant here called jack 'n' grills. they have burritos weighing an advertised weight of 7 pounds. a friend dragged me there one day and i watched them being made. well, the first 6.75 pounds of it was potato.
hmpf. don't think so, not at the price they were charging. apparently was on a food show on cable. wup, there i go...i'm hongry now.
