Re: Pedal Power - Bikes, lets see them!

Little update on my sisters’ crash recovery. She made it through surgery and has added five titanium screws to herself. Beats me by two..... Thanks for the update. Sounds like good health, bones, longevity and accident prone runs in the genes. I'm 3 of 4. Glad she's gonna be ok. We may be 4 for 4 i...

Re: Pedal Power - Bikes, lets see them!

Little update on my sisters’ crash recovery. She made it through surgery and has added five titanium screws to herself. Beats me by two. She is on crutches and doing PT now, three times a week.

Look back at our old bikes is both a pleasure and a pain. :)

Re: Wifeys' Toy

I had a love/hate relationship with my wife’s 02 A4. Plastics on the engine and door sensors were my bane. But, there was nothing better on a long road trip.
