i decided to go for a bike ride yesterday after not having gone in almost a year. back in 2010 i was riding 20 miles per day, and probably longer when i was a bike messenger in downtown chicago for a brief period.

yesterday, i hit my turnaround point at about 5 miles according to google :/ bikes trip computer said 3 which is even more depressing. i need to get back into shape.

anyway, heres 2 crappy cellphone pics. it was getting dark when i got there so they aren't great.

if anyone was wondering, my bike is an el cheapo walmart bike. its licensed by gm, and its called a denali, but in reality its just a rebaged kent.

ive always been a firm believer in the fact that its not the price of the bike, its how you maintain it.

There seems to be a distinct similarity between our gauge faces. Only one difference, mileage. I envy yours.

Didn't have too much going on at work today. It'* threatening rain, so I didn't bother to go clean up the porch I did yesterday.

It'* a small little porch, so it shouldn't need much cleaning. I just have to go polish up that limestone on the boarders. I can get that done Saturday.

Went out for a nice morning cruise since the rain won't be coming in till this afternoon.

Instead of a single line drawn through the cement, I think the Oldsmobile logo would have done better FTW!

I don't think I'll ever go that fast in one of these trucks again. I did that in Korea all the time though.

The face on a Korean when a 4 door/longbed 2500HD Diesel flies past them at about 100mph is priceless though.
