Good thing I kept the brakes on!

Normally, I open my brakes up all the way on my bike. I don't like abrupt stopping one bit. I don't even like to use my brakes.


Today was a different story. I jumped off the start of a streetlight with a pretty fast moving bus (remember So Cal speed), only to be shocked into an abrupt stop when the bus pulled over about five hundred meters from the light. I had just worked up to full speed behind the darn thing, and was smack dab on the bumper, right on the middle of the big beast. I was totally caught off-guard when the thing stopped!
Thank goodness I had absentmindedly left the brakes all the way closed today, due to a recent wheelset change. You'll be happy to know I held it up through the sideways fishtail skid! Probably lost some serious tread on the tire from that one, and probably turned more than a few heads with my antics. Some local high school was just getting out and there were people everywhere! I was the only clueless one. Chuckle chuckle.......

Tis the "Off-Season"

Well....for me it's the off-season anyway! It's time to bust out the running shoes. That picture above is from The Activa Sports photo shoot I did a couple of months ago. Funny note about that day: just before that picture was taken, a real live tasmanian devil blew through our photo site. It was nuts!!! I'm not sure I ever knew those things were real beyond the Road Runner cartoons...beep-beep!

I was driving home from work today, somehwere along PCH ...between Seal Beach and Huntington Beach, when Simon Cowell pulled up alongside me. How fast did I hang up my cell and get a picture? ...well evidently, not fast enough! --For those who know me, it's quite appropriate that he is my first star sighting. Good thing it was just my brother (and not a dealer!) that I hung up on.. LOL!
