Tim's new bike

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

If you buy that bike you better get used to making yourself happy.

Gadzooks....those little automatons mimic real conversations that we have with our better - halves!!! Sadly, the female automaton makes a better case. Except for the romantic trip to "muy peligros" Mexico. The male automaton has no real case. As do I.

Wow. I didn't know someone was taping the conversation I had with my wife when I told her that I bought my BMC a few weeks ago. I'm ashamed.

Of course, I'll get over it on Thursday when it finally gets here.

Okay, I thought I might use that little skit as a way to break the ice and soften my wife up but after listening to it I'm definitely NOT sharing it with her - too much ammunition against me and nothing I can use.
