Well, I installed fink and gimp. That let me play with cropping and resizing the graphic of my motorcycle ride from yesterday. Unless I mangled the HTML, you should see a small version of said graphic to the left of this paragraph. Click on it and a window will pop up with a bigger version of the picture if you'd like to see it in a little clearer detail. It almost looks like a one-way trip, doesn't it? Well, that's because I started at a point, went to another point, turned around, and rode back. I started at the bottom of the picture. I rode out Lake Brandt to Summerfield. By the time I was in the open country, the bike was sounding much better. She really was needing a good, dedicated ride of more than just a few minutes. There were a couple of good curves along the route. This is a route that I take when I don't have a lot of time to ride, but I want to get out for a bit. I used my GPS receiver to collect the data for making this map and uploaded it to my computer after the ride. It was about a 25 mile ride. I was out for about 40 minutes. Once my new battery is charged and installed, I'm looking forward to going out some day for a several hour ride in the country, maybe in the mountains on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Once again this year, I've got 6 great Brickyard 400 tickets that I can't use. If you're interested in them, let me know and I'll sell them to you…
Yay! My NASCAR tickets sold on eBay. I'll be shipping them off on my way back to work from lunch.
Buy my Brickyard 400 tickets!
