Bubb Rubb Rides Again

The whistles go: WOOOOO!

This post on Autoblog about aftermarket clip on tail pipe whistlers brought up all kinds of good memories:

I've conclusively determined that Waggy is the faster Josh

This morning Josh Waggy and I rode out to Alameda and wandered aimlessly until we found this tiny little sub-island that forks off the main island. It was really pretty out there, slightly foggy views of SF and Oakland and the Peninsula. It's the little hook on the south-western side there:

That strip of road along the beach on the south side of the main part of Alameda is still my favorite bit of road hands down. It's so smooth and fast, very scenic and there are two not heavily trafficked lanes each direction, so I don't feel bad about taking a whole lane for myself. Though in the evening there are so many people cruising, bbq'ing and walking on the beach and hitting up the awesome Sushi restaurant near there, it's not fun to ride there at all. I always put the hammer down and try to sprint the whole length there to see what my top limit is these days. This time we sustained 27.5 mp/h for a quite a bit.

I've conclusively determined that Waggy is the faster Josh... this will not stand.

I also just realized that I passed 500 miles on my bike sometime this month:

Two-Stroke Rhythm Section Looks Exhausting*

This reminds me of a wonderful duet for trombone and tractor I once heard at the SF Contemporary Music Players, I wish I could remember who that composer was.

Tractor Used As Drums For Sweet Georgia Brown
