  1. Nothing gets past you. should I ask why you were so sure
  2. I was out all day fri for a great ride. The weather was amazing. topped it off by stopping in Oakville to buy a slab of biltong. Got home a tad after dark.
  3. Last night I heard strange noises outside in the backyard. It started shortly after midnight when he ground was covered in snow. It consisted of a lot of grunts and groans. After that there was a lot of heavy breathing like someone was struggling to get up off the ground. You will never believe what I saw in my back yard when I finally got brave enough to go out and look.
  4. wonder how many of the bikes they passed ended up on their sides
  5. What somebody talk'n overtime on that confounded 3W contraption
  6. I don't see a moon or an arrow other than the moons @Flyinfoolused to post on chat. And I'm not even sure if his moons are PG rated.
  7. I don't know who the photographer was but finally there are more of me in some of those pics than just the top of my head.
  8. So! I now have run my E4 tires through two seasons Date code on tires is 2017, Initially tires ran great with excellent road holding and braking as well as great ride. Some have found the tires noisy but I have not found this to be the case with mine. The tires still have 50% tread left on them with approx. 7,000 km on them. Here however is the issue. Near the tail end of this summer I started noticing the back wheel would occasionally slide out on me during turns in intersections specially right hand turns and yet they still seem to be holding well in the curves. I believe this to be a case o
  9. I did all my repair work with plastfix also known as plastex. and fiberglass cloth
  10. Don't listen to @Patchor @cowpucJust Replace the bike less hassle
  11. I use the TOMTOM GO app on my phone. It has a lot of good features like choosing winding road of various degrees hilly very hilly or not hilly. avoid interstate highways and or dirt roads (should get @Marcarlon this since he has trouble avoiding dirt roads). and daylight visibility is far superior to my Garmin 660 and so far has been more accurate then my Garmin. About the only thing I use my Garmin for any more is to record my trip for future reference. Did however have a quick look at Calimoto and it certainly looks to be worth further study.
  12. If you look at all the unacceptable conditions on the chart you will see why I do not use it since 9 times out of ten it is the unacceptable conditions that take place. Pretty much the only time you get an acceptable result is when using new and perfectly clean oxidation free wiring. The method I use as explained earlier is much more forgiving and reliable specially when working with older wiring.
