Speaking of odd town names, we are riding to Intercourse, PA today.

Donít forget Blue Ball, Bird-in-Hand and Paradise. You can ride through the first two then Intercourse to get to Paradise, but not if youíre from Virginville in neighboring Berks County.

Even though it's still 42 minutes 'til Saturday starts here, here's one for Saturday.

I've only been to Boring, Jackpot, Pie Town, and Woonsocket. I gotta get out more. And this is a terrible map. Catfish Paradise, AZ is not a town.

I rode through Foul Rift and S. Foul Rift, NJ again during last monthís tour. Nice area along the Delaware River. Still pretty agrarian.

Drivers in Lancaster county seem quite patient, likely because of all the Amish buggies they are tolerant of slower moving vehicles. Once in Berks County it feels like the drivers want to kill us.

I've been wet so many times in the last three weeks that it's starting to feel normal. :rolleyes:

I donít think .4 miles has ever been 400 yards.

But how can we really be sure about that, hmmm?

WhyFi 10-16-21 06:40 AM

Almost time to ride.... but it's 39⁰ with a bit of wind, so do I don my winter gear (early season wimpiness) or do I fire up the trainer? :foo:

In the 40s here, so similar thoughts.

Depends. Original brakes?

I lived about 15 miles from Woonsocket, back when I didn't have any control over where I lived.

We have the same dilemma here. 41į this AM and windy. Weíre waiting until 10:00 to start but itís still going to be sub-50 and the winds worse.

I know 2 guys who have put 350 LS1 engines into 240z Datsuns. They said the aluminum LS1 weighs about the same as the original iron 6 cylinder. The weak link becomes the differential. My one friend takes his to the track and besides eating tires he has broken the differential a few times. He has some beefy diff to put in there now.

I'm pretty sure a Chevy v-8 weighs more than the 4 cylinder pea-shooter that came in that MG, though.

I've only put two people on ignore: one on Twitter, and the second on another forum (politics subforum).

You should put me on ignore if you dislike high quality content.

It needs replaced. I don't spend money for the hell of it.

Another fun fact. For those who have heard of helluva french onion dip, I pronounce it ha-lou-va to piss off my wife. It's a gift.
