Probably missed some.

A tote is a type of bag. Specifically, itís the type of bag one might take into a shower. The shower might be in France, or Haiti, or Montreal.

Bitter why?

Thought maybe you were referring to a particular one.

I like flying on Airbus products, except for the 319. That thing is stinking tight in American config, and with only 8 big boy seats it is hard to get comfortable.

What ever keeps me based as close to home as possible.

Its either the Bus, or 737. The 737 is pretty junior in DC, so maybe that.

What do you mean, it's pretty junior? It's smaller than the others?

People not making sense this morning. Guess 10 am is too early.

Might just be too early for you to understand things.

The young pilots get the 737s. The older guys want to fly the fancier planes.

It's 9:00. SMH

Time to load up the Honda and hit the soggy K-Town streets for productive activities.

Everyone log off and see if you can pull yourselves together for when I return.

If your car was a rider on the Addiction Strava leaderboard, it would be near the bottom.

The only other car I have owned had 108,000 miles when it got totaled after just over 18 years of faithful service, and that mileage was put on by mom and I.

We need a leaderboard for who has spent the least on gas during their lifetime.

I'll bet that I'm at the forefront of most spent on gas in a lifetime.

Supposedly, the new toys are to be officially unveiled at Eurobike, noon ET. Retail availability, of course, is still to be determined, both on bikes and standalone. However, it should give us clarity at least. For example, I might be able to make real plans about my steel.

Once you get confirmation on this, please share?

I don't know, it's a lot more expensive out here. I'll try and figure out my lifetime mileage but it has to be over 1 million miles. Over 500k between 2 cars, I've had 28 cars and I drove tow truck for a few years.

I don't think I'd be the most. Just more on that end than the other.

Indy's Subie is 5 years old with just 13k miles. My Jeep is 8 months old with 8k miles.

But, we don't have any other type of transit.

Inflation adjusted?

I might win though.

Yep, will do.

Here's a load of continuous rail I saw in Vancouver a few years ago. These were about a 1/4 mile long.

Also shown: Vancouver Amtrak Station, the Columbia River swing bridge, and on the far right a little piece of the Great Western Malting grain elevators.

You probably got me beat. It's an car-centric world here, though I sometimes rebel with my bicycle.

I read the article. Sadly, it suggests that the wireless cockpit is NOT compatible with rim brakes, only with disc brakes. I will hope that might change but at least for my setup it ain't gonna happen.

Oh yes, thatís a fact. Wireless shifters are disc only. I could redo the R2 (but likely wonít). Not sure about the back end part for mechanical type bikes.

datlas 08-31-21 10:27 AM

I might have to wait for the mechanical 12 speed 105 group. Sad.
