Work or ride before it rains? Ride!

I was working on some stuff today that didn't need to be completed for two more weeks. The rain is supposed to start up again tomorrow so I said screw it and took the rest of the day off. Being self employed does have benefits after all! Not the best pic but I had to make a fast stop and get a drink.

That video was two minutes of my life that I will not regret.

If ever there was a short video on how to have fun on a bike, that is it.

You don't expect to ever put "way too much fun" and "Suzuki Savage" in the same sentence, but that shows how it's done.

The only thing I've ever considered one for is a city ride that's suited to Portland speeds (hint: there are very few streets in the Metro area on which a motor vehicle will make better time overall than a bicycle) and which I won't weep over if something happens to it, i.e. getting backed over by an SUV with a kiddie kasket on top and any amount of moral philosophy, presumably aspirational marathon fractions and bacon donut enthusiasm adhering to the rear window.
