      I don't live and never have lived in an area where car inspections existed. I personally would hate having to deal with them. From my experience, the amount of hoopties on the road that would be...

      Yep.


      I've actually baited known aggressive drivers on the morning commute so they get caught up by cops in known locations. Its surprisingly easy to do.

      I think I'm going to head over to the shop tonight and buy it. Depends on if I get out of work in time today. Seems like a good deal, but trying to stay objective and remind myself that I can't...

      1. Touring/Distance - K1600

      Ahhh that makes sense. Thank you.

      And I guess I got the Fuji mixed up, its has the disc brakes. No 'c' in the model name, like you said. Seems like that wouldn't be a bad way to go.

      Confused, what's the drive train got to do with brakes?

      What makes the tiagra better than sora?

      Not that I have anything against that Fuji, I'd just like to understand.

      So I went out to a few local shops this weekend. Got fitted at one, looked around at inventory at all of them. Turns out a 54 is about my size. Rode a few on a trainer at one place - they had a...

      This is the advantage of DDing an appliance. Fine, take the car. Zero emotional attachment on my end.

      I thought it was actually against the law for dealers to be open on Sundays. Some franchise laws or something. Might be different from state to state.

      I played it for about 45 minutes....

      I'm getting old. Didn't care for it. Was hoping for a larger scale 'PvP' payday. Its just BF in cities with the loose goal of taking a package to an...

      Thanks for the input everyone. I'll visit a bike shop around here and get sized at least, see whats what. I'm sure $1k+ bikes are super nice...but that can't happen anytime soon. I guess I'll play...

      Most cars are mass produced enough that I'll try to find a clean one. If car A has been in two wrecks, its usually pretty easy to find car A's clone another 50 miles away that has a clean rap sheet....

      Kind of amazing the DRZ has enough power to make that happen, isn't it?

      Chalk it up to a learning experience and be happy you were barely moving when you went down. I've been down at ~30mph...

      Good tips on heading to a shop to get sized. Thats something I hadn't thought of. Appreciate it!


      As for budget... I was thinking more like 200-300 on a bike. 1000 is right out. :laugh:
    16. Newb considering getting (back) into cycling

      Like a lot of people, I rode a bike everywhere growing up - right up until I got that driver's license. Haven't thrown a leg over a bicycle for probably 10+ years at this point and back when I rode...

      if you are looking for an integrated solution, I'd look for something that uses that Android CarPlay or the Apple equivalent, whichever you prefer. Let your smartphone do the work.

      I realize you are just a troll. But, if you do the math using my driving habits above assuming 35mpg average with a gasser cruze, the monthly running costs are almost double. Yes, with today's gas...
