Yep, autumn is finally here. I actually put on a jacket a couple times last week. Off to a slow start, was going to set the goal for 150, but 100 might be more realistic. Riding 100 come the...

I feel your pain. It's like shopping for shoes for me. Rather than looking at the styles, I ask "What do you have in a size 13?" and that narrows it down to two or three pair. If I ever window-shop...
