Addiction 2022.2

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

i should have been more clear. Big John and I were talking about Sam Posey's 300SL Gullwing. Recent auction results are in the $1.5 - 2.2 Million range.

The first one was one of a very few that had an aluminum body, and the second was Rudi Uhlenhaut's personal 300SLR. Uhlenhaut ran MB's racing division before and after WWII.

I am trying the eyedrops for near-vision (to avoid needing readers/cheaters), it's my first day but they do seem to work ok. I expect I will eventually have to bite the bullet and need either bifocals or reading glasses.
