Feeling cool...

Yeah, sometimes just being on the bike can make you feel pretty damn cool...


... like when you're leaving for work and pass the bus stop where the elementary school kids are and you see some of them jumping up and down excited to see a bike.

... or when a few days later you get there just after the bus and one of the parents does the same thing.

Talk about a great way to start your day.

2008: Looking back

What a up/down year. Great things, and some crap thrown in to boot. Learned a lot, at least.


Picked up my dream bike, then tossed it.

Finished fixing the track bike, then I couldn't ride because I was on crutches.

Got a new job... but a crap new supervisor.

Got to go to Korea, Hawaii, and AZ... but missed out on CO, CA, MotoGP, Caribbean, Korea (second time), VA, and HI (Second time). ...

Yeah, it was one hell of a ride.

Here's my route (approx) with the North end ride tied on. Guessed at some of it but it's pretty close. About 20 miles shorter than the odo read.

Ride 12/27

Posted 12-26-2007 at 11:00 PM by DJ Nathan V

Threw down another 30 miles or so today and nothing too special... Visiting family and then headed to bike night. Daniel was there and snapped a few pictures for us, w00t. http://pnwfx.smugmug.com/gallery/4059093


...and the roads were DRY! I got the tires warmed up a little bit and had some fun. It feels so good to actually be able to LEAN through turns.

I really hope the wetness stays away for a few days!

Christmas stuff....

Posted 12-25-2007 at 12:03 PM by DJ Nathan V

Who else got riding gear or gift cards/cash intended for riding gear?

My parents gave me cash so I can go pick up some nice winter gloves. I'm thinking some like Arcane's. Those babies looked NICE!

Oh, and my niece that's due in a couple weeks kicked me for Christmas... I thought that was fuggin cool. My sister's sick of me following her around with my hand on her tummy though.

Ride 12/23

Posted 12-23-2007 at 09:29 PM by DJ Nathan V

Well I put down another 60ish miles today on a fresh tank of gas. It was cold, but so nice to be on the bike. Got some Christmas shopping done and visited family. Pretty uneventful until almost at my parents house some moron turns off a side street into the right lane... and wanders right over into the left almost dead into me. I probably scared him good when I came back in front of him from across the double yellow from the opposing traffic's lane!

It's soooo good to...
