Gra Nomad Wanderings

Thursday, June 29, 2006


Great to finally visit the Bike Friday heaven... where they are all made and sold. We had a good chat with Terrific Tim the bike mechanic (he's the one with the beard!) Then we had a tour of the operation with Peter Berra (they call him kookaberra in Australia). He's wearing the black T. While they were servicing the Banana Split, they loaned us a tandem to try out! A fast tandem with STIs and Ultegra gear! It was as light as... as Fay is trying to show you. But, we really like ours and the way it is set up. I told Fay we would've got over 80 kph the other day on the grey bike... but she prefers comfort to speed any day. 79.8 is quick enough she reckons!
Next... Corvallis for the NORTH WEST TANDEM RALLY.
Cheerio beautiful bike friendly Eugene, and thanks heaps to Laura, Gary and Ellen. (Strawberries willbe posted next time.) Great meal Laura!

Hey was your honey shocked about the love letter? It sounds like you did good, with the dinner and everyone wishing her Happy Birthday. Yall look refreshed and like you are having an amazing time. Life is Good!

I think 79.8 and comfortable would be my choice as well.

Jen... havin' a blast is so correct!
Dana...yeah... she doesn't say much but I think she appreciated the "love letter".... it was good for me too. I am such a lucky guy!
Julie... thought you'd like the comfort rather than the speed option.
Haven't done post on TANDEM RALLY yet, but it was great. Fay really did more than was asked for... needs a bit of TLC for awhile now. Let her knees recover!
