You don't do a very good job keeping up. You could have weighed in earlier with your WaWa expertise.

I was busy repairing people's bicycles.

I came home from yesterday's ride and have been hungry continually. I think I might have just sated it with the leftover carrot/beet salad from dinner.
Hmmm. I see it shows this as a quote. I distinctly hit the reply to thread button. This has happened before

We are not having a cooler summer, as I prognosticated earlier. The temperatures are indeed normal, but it feels cooler. Perhaps I have finally acclimated.

Honda has a six speed stick, but the gear ratios are so skewed that it is tough(and not worth it)to figure out. The automatic we have in our Fit has far more pick-up than any car I've ever owned, or rented.

I ride all year which means wet, snow, ice, salt, you name it.

It wasn't my last stick shift but it was hands down my favorite stick, a '77 Celica with the legendary 22R engine. :love:

Battaglin Update - I know you were all just DYING for this!!!

Before this afternoon's ride, I rotated the bars down a fair bit. Rode 4 miles with them like that, but that was too far. So I rotated them up a bit and rode another 4 miles. Rotated them up just a smidge, and that was much better. They're still rotated a bit relative to their starting point, and I think I'll stop there.

The thing is, there's a gorge between Collegetown (the area where a lot of students live) and campus, and you have to cross a bridge over it to get to campus.

My friend had an electric Fit. You can't buy them, only lease. He renewed the the lease and had 140,000 miles when he turned it in. He was extremely happy with it, he has a long commute and replaced it with an electric Hyundai.
He leased a hydrogen powered Toyota for his wife and it's been nothing but trouble.

the last time you posted that picture, you obscured the face to avoid rath. I believe that is your ex?. Might want to reassess.

mine was a 2003 Chevy S-10. It was red but it was a plain Jane. I enjoyed that truck.

You know, I remember thinking about posting it but I thought I had reconsidered at the time. This time I just doubt she'll ever see it, so screw it.

I had a 1986 S-10 Blazer for 18 years. 5 speed 4wd. Totally neglected it for years and sold it with nearly 300,000 miles. Paid $2800 for it.:)
Had a Tercel 4wd wagon with a 6 speed with granny low. Used the granny to push a couple cars on snow and ice.
Had a 1947 Chevy Fleetmaster. They had 3 on the tree with a vacuum booster on the shifter to make the shifter easy to move.
