Talking Health-Nutrition-Fitness-Martial Arts

What about a new forum... I think most of us have read the Larryg thread and his progress, and we have heard some excellent advice from people.

I think being healthy is defenetly a factor in motorcycling... what about a new forum dedicated to working out, nutrition, martial arts... what do you guys think?

I thought about this when Ken was taking on new ideas for forums (I should have said something b/c we ended up with a "How to blow up stuff" section and now I'm always worried that there will be a red dot on me during a group ride . And then Larry's thread came along....of course, I think it is a good idea - I just didn't think anybody would be that interested but it sounds like I'm wrong (which I'm happy to admit in this case). Though I can't speak for them...Biggy and Dirtrider might also be interested in this. I, at a minimum, would volunteer to help get topics and ideas started (however, there needs to be a disclaimer that my advice should be taken at your own risk )

And it's reasonable to have a forum like this because we all need to know how many calories we burn after a 2 hour ride

Let's do it!

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

I hate exercising for the sake of exercising though. I'm for the forum though! Maybe it'll help kick my butt and get motivated.

As a counter point can we have a forum on how to improve our skills in being fat, drunk and lazy? As you can tell I've been too stressed out lately.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Only if you can scientifically prove that by increasing your mass the gyroscopic force of the bike increasing the coeficient of the whichamacallit after applying blinker fluid to the leathers on.

Can we add stupid too? I can tell all the others how stupid I can be Wait most of you know that about me already


When I get stressed out, I tape a "smiley face" to the heavy bag, and wail away. You get two benefits from this, 1) you lose the stress 2) it's an excellent workout.

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

Don't forget slow.
Oh, yesterday was a real winner. Both eyes were twitching from stress by lunch. I was going to go to the pistol range at Gat Gun but couldn't leave in time. Settled for 30 minutes on the bike followed by about an hour on the BowFlex. Did full uppers and abs to failure. It was in cycle anyway. Then had a big protein shake with a few shots of Vodka before a late dinner. I think I stopped shaking by 10:00. Then did about an hour of work in my home office. I miss the days when stress relief was simply chasing my wife around. Right now my right shoulder is paining. I can't wait for my surgery on the 18th so I can start rehabing it, although 12 weeks without being able to lift will make me nutzo.
