Smile: Finally getting a full-time job. Gives me an excuse to ride my bike 40km per day, every day. I have less time for EM, but I'm starting to lose my spare tire and my butt is getting firm and sexy.
As the saying goes: There are positive up-sides and negative up-sides.

Just got a quote for 2 Michelin Energy XM2s so low that all the other tire shops told me to take it. $155NZ/corner including tax, balancing, and fitting, compared with $189 retail.

Finally going to have LRR tires all round!

Living in a place where nearby I can practice how to stop at a stop sign without
ever touching the brakes (left or right foot..smile) The road is basically flat, but
air temps., different weights carried (groceries), often wet, have worked to keep
me from this perfect stop. Got there 99.9% a few times, but appreciate
a calm place to be able to work on this!

It just rained where I lived. I got 34 MPG even with the cold before the rain, running of headlights most of the time, and doing 75-80 on the freeway until it rained. I need to fix the cooling air path, GM kinda dropped the ball when they designed the bumper for a reskin of a corolla.

Well, I was in London at the start of the month making a delivery to some Guy...



but unfortunately his project has been cancelled.

Shame really, it could have provided some decent fireworks...
