Crossed the one thousand mile mark on my bike this morning (since June 10th). It s dark when I leave now. I have spray on reflecting surfaces on one side and on the back, a reflector on the saddlebag, reflectors on the pedals, and two lights. One in the back is a mag light I already owned an almost never used. I cut a red filter for the lens from broken auto taillight plastic I found along the road. My headlight is adapted from a camping light for the forehead my daughter bought a couple years ago and used only once.

It rained today so I got to test my rain fenders, which I cut from wheel-well auto plastics I found on the street.


See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
