He's a very experienced power lifter with a lot of records, medals, etc. and he knew better. He's so mad at himself because he knew he was in trouble when he started the lift and forced it anyway. 625# can do a lot of damage if your grip isn't correct. :(

There were Peoria folks on the boat with us. They were very happy not to be in Peoria last week.

We actually got through the storm pretty well. The highway departments did a damn good job. I won't be able to ride the roads for several days due to icing over in spots from the wind but getting around in the car is a breeze. We're used to the low temps; no biggie there. It's winter. ;)

I was visibly pissed. The stupid part, looking at the flag poles the last five indicated no wind, but it was def there.
First time I rode a bike to failure my legs were toast. I imagine sleeping is going to be rough tonight, leg pain plus most likely restless legs.

Ah. The Omnidirectional Headwind. Saps the energy out of the legs and the joy out of riding. You have my sympathy.

They showed him sonograms of both of his arms and even he could see the devastation in his damaged arm. Like any amateur athlete, heís devastated. He had several meets lined up this Spring.

YIKES!!! That sounds really painful! Here's hoping the recovery is rapid.

My friend raced flat track at Ascot in 1972 on a 250cc Ossa. Going to see the sprint cars there was a hoot. I even took my sister and her daughter there and they had a great time.
I've seen the NHRA at Pomona a few times but never been to those other tracks except Saugus. Went to the USGP of motocross at Carlsbad a few times. That was fun. A 2.2 mile track in a natural canyon and you could bring lawn chairs and an ice chest and sit anywhere. One year they had mountain bikes racing around during intermission. I remember we thought they were crazy. Track was closed to build houses.
Also saw a National mx race at Saddleback in Orange County. Another natural terrain track also closed by housing.

Ah yes. Saddleback was the high school my sister attended. McFadden Jr. High was my school. We lived right down the street from South Coast Plaza.

I thought about a cycling activity this afternoon but my nap activity went to long. Quasi-jogging activity instead.

I went by a stop light. There's a truck waiting there with its window open (even though it was only in the 40s) and a dog yapped away at me. A minute later it passes and the dog is still yapping.

What is wrong with those creatures?

They are manly. Not like your feline animals.

Thank you, and if you have one of those little violens you can play for me that would be great!

I'm minding my own business. Why do dogs have to make a big spectacle of things?

Too.

Speaking of naps going too long, I napped from 4-7 pm yesterday. Is that even a nap?

Dogs are man's best friend. Get one and you'll discover this universal truth. Until then, pipe down.

Fake chain, and a pretty good one. I swapped the factory chain back in and all of the problems went away. Go figure

How did you end up with a fake chain?

I made the mistake of buying it from Bezos.

Where did you get a fake chain? Ebay?

I got a couple fake KMC X11 chains off of Amazon a few years ago. I broke both and didnít know about the fakes until someone posted here to watch out for fake KMCs. I should have known better the price was cheap.

These werenít even cheap, but apparently Amazon bins every part together in their warehouse regardless of seller, so I got a fake chain and a bunch of headaches.

They already refunded me the money though, so thereís that
