Watch Out. The Guns Will Getcha....
Sun finally came out here again after yesterday's piss down-bore fest. Took the Salsa out on the road today, full knobbies n'at. Rolled for about 1:40. Stuck to all the country roads. I don't fill like as big a dork if I ride the back roads. It's the town roads that I feel like I'm sitting still. Nice ride, shifts we're on the money (thanks Tom).
Thought I was gonna have a "throw down" with a dude driving a Conversion Van that would NOT pass. I waved him around... nuthin! I pull over slow and he stops... I give out a "what the fuck?" and motion for him to come over... He rolls down the window and just as I'm ready to let fly with a storm of F-Bombs, there's a freaking 90 year old woman in the passenger seat and the dude is a little, Amber-Vision wearing, Moe Howard hair-cutted little Van Man. Dammmmmn. So I apologize, and say "hey I just wanted you to go around" he says "sorry, it was tight and I had an accident going around on a narrow road before..." yada, yada, yada. I felt dumb, the dude was just a tad backwards. Shoulda just stopped to begin with and let Van Man around. That will teach me. At least I didn't have to go and get my ass kicked a week before the race.
Did you check out the F-ing Spam I got yesterday.. What the F? Gotta stop that somehow. Even Kerkove was busting my balls about it. Had like 9 Spams. Tried to delete some.
Next few days look like Katrina is gonna put down some liquid. Tart!
Kabush won the Vermont NORBA and took the series. My fave chick Shonny V took the overall NORBA and Allison "ADvantage" Dunlap won today. Nice way to go out.
Random: Is the 29er the Hard Tail's comeback? I mean there are FS 29ers (Sologoat's Asylum, Fisher, etc.) but 90% seem to be hardtails. No wonder Mountain Bike Action seems to not like the 29er! I kinda dig 'em but I got too much cash wrapped up in my 26's and road bike. Like to try Salsa's with the short travel rear... oh well.
