But, other than getting their shoes wet, what does it add to the event?

88 of VV’s 147 pounds are water. He should embrace it.

That grille seems way too big for the rest of the car, funny thing is that it's just for show. This is a rear engine vehicle.

The fake grill treatment allows for a larger trunk. By making the trunk more spacious, you can buy two pairs of shoes and fit both shoe boxes in there.

Maybe you can catch a ride on this in the upcoming season.

I don't identify with the joke NFL. I support this juggernaut team known as the mighty Owls.

Just thinking about the 1938 antique car I restored partly, never finished, makes me appreciate what a pleasure working on bikes is.

Whew, putting that hitch receiver back on the van was a major PITA. Eventually got everything mostly ready for towing. Unfortunately whenever the trailer lights are plugged in, the van's lights are no longer automatic, so I'm going to have to relearn how to turn headlamps on and off when needed :)

I am back in injury world. The left knee again. Two tough rides this week, the second of which did the trick. I haven't ridden since Thu. I fly Wed., and am considering going ahead and packing the bike. I can't quite pull the trigger, but Tue. is packing day anyway, and I foresee no riding between now and then.
Sad!

How long does packing take?

I would guess that assembling takes longer than disassembling, but I've never done either. Nor do I plan to.

That's hot! I wonder how that wheel/tire setup would look on my Ti bike.
