Why aren't you out riding?

I am just curious why I am seeing so many new posts on such a great day to be outside riding or doing whatever. I am stuck in the office and will be here until the wee hours of the morning running and babysitting conversion processes. Why is everyone else in doors?

The posts are helping me pass the time. It kills me to be in here with it being so nice out there.

Because I fucking forgot to pull the key out last night and killed my battery. Try and get a replacement on Memorial day. I'm so bloody stupid.

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.

Stuck in the office, today. Now I'm home and the girlfriend is making dinner.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I've been out twice today, testing the new back tire. Got up to Lake Geneva a bit this morning, and then went out this afternoon and hit a couple of frontage roads.

Rode Sat morning, Sunday SR ride was cancled and rode REAL hard this morning - The chick tneds to get a lil jealous if I spend toooo much time riding - either that or I gotta ride 2 up which I hate doin - Plus, I hate traffic and really only get a chance to open it up in the early morning when the cages are few
