    Got me a bike.

    A friend of mine has a Boneshaker that he rides in local parades and such. I rode it around a parking lot for a while. All I can say is it's a good thing bicycles evolved from the high wheel era... It wasn't to hard to mount and start riding but it's a bear to keep going, especially if there's any uphill grade. Each time you push the pedal, you have to fight to pull the handlebars the opposite way. Dismounting is the hardest part, you can't just stop pedaling and kick your leg over - the pedal you are standing on will stop the wheel and cause an immediate stoppie!

    I think those are old liquor bottles but I'm not sure if gas in a top shelf Bombay Sapphire bottle costs more... We only had 2 dinners in Cambodia but the best was a fish curry with a coconut milk sauce with rice at a cool little neighborhood restaurant owned by a French expat and his Khmer wife. She cooked and served and he walked around barefoot serving drinks and talking to customers. We did take a photo of a German sausage and convinced friends that we were eating cobra!

    I'll see your tuk tuk and raise you a "Tomb Raider" tree and a Cambodian "gas station". And, yes, the food was fantastic!

    I wish I could do it on a moto. Its 1:45 AM here in the airport at Kuala Lumpur. Flight to Siem Reap leaves at 6:40. Closest I'll get to riding a moto in Cambodia will be in the back of a tuk tuk. :{)

    A couple of Christmases ago I was working with a guy from Syria who was Muslim. He drove to lunch one day and he had a Christmas music radio station playing in his car. He said, "I just love your American Christmas songs. They all sound so happy."

    Gloves

    Sounds like you have broad hands like I do. If the fingers are the right length, they're too tight at the thumb. I bought a pair of IXS RS 200 X gauntlet gloves at Iron Pony last spring and they fit my fat hands like I want them to. I liked them so well I bought a second pair a month later. They run really small - I think I bought 2X but they fit really nice. Looks like IP still has them on clearance for $45. https://www.ironpony.com/ipd/pi.asp/ImageName/RS200_GLV.JPG/Brand/IXS/c2/Riding-Gloves/c3/Street-Gloves-Mens/c1/Street-Products/KitKey2/RS-200-X-Gloves

    Fly Racing Conquest Helmet Closeout $79 at Iron Pony

    Thanks for the boots idea, durk. I went back today to look at the JR boots but my high arched feet wouldn't fit inside anything close to my size. Got Firstgear short boots instead for $20 more. Sizing issues (waist/length ratio) kept me from buying the IXS pants but I got a summer jacket for under $80. Of course I was $3 away from a free tshirt so I threw in a coffee mug at checkout.
  11. I picked up one of these at Iron Pony last night. Seems like a solidly built (DOT & ECE, but not SNELL) helmet and I couldn't pass up the $79 price. Sizing runs on the snug side. I usually wear a L but XL fit better in this. I got the red/white/black one. It was 24o this morning so no ride report. Maybe Friday... https://www.ironpony.com/ipd/pl.asp/c3/Full-Face-Helmets/c2/Helmets/c1/Street-Products/Brand/Fly-Racing

    Used tire traction test (cars)

    As a former Michelin engineer, I found this very interesting. It's not often I watch an entire 20 min video.
