Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

Bike(s) Update

1150GS working out very well - the most common commute I have is a 260 mile round trip. I have achieved "the mission" in pouring rain and in crisp sunny weather, where I could touch both footpegs down. Good times. Only dampener (ha ha) was that even the best gear struggles to be waterproof in a 3-hr deluge. Still, the bike is living up to the reputation as being one of the best in the world in the wet. Also on 2 wheels, my Kona FIBUA project frame is back from an amazing Chas Roberts alteration to fit Paul Components Track Ends. I am building it as we speak, which involves some entertaining eBay antics. More stuff with pics soon.
