Addiction 2021.1

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

Van #2 is running like a top now. After being convinced one of the vacuum lines was leaking, turned out it was a sticking PCV valve.

That engine still sounds like it's wheezing but it's not throwing lean codes anymore

Now I need to make a list of parts van #1 needs, after a couple years of being parts van, so I can get it rolling, then fly down on some 3-day weekend and drive it up north after filling it full of remaining bikes and other crap.

Maybe just 45 minutes. Wednesday is supposed to be 70.
What does the laser do?

Wait, he just lasers the skin covering your spine and that's supposed to help with a disc problem?

Not really. It summons the nurse to come check and make sure I'm not dying.

Now that I got her in the saddle I hope the sweet euphoric addiction hooks her too.

Did I mention that I broke 1000 watts in a sprint the other day? 1013 watts to be exact. Kinda freaked me out a little.
