Put down the protractors, plumb-bobs, scales, micrometers, inclinometers, stash the keyboard and kill the mouse! STOP ANALYZING EVERTHING!!!!

Get out there and ride your Turner!

Busted.
I rushed home so I could pull out my angle finder and level just to call bs on jm.

I geeked out all Thanksgiving break with Matlab and also blew my wad at Steve the JH's calculations...and still managed to get three 2 hour+ rides in.....loving everying brake-squatting moment.

There is time for two obsessions....more than that and you are spread to thin (or you run out of money ;) ).

Do what?? Ride this thing! No way, It'll get dirty. :D

I vaguely remember riding. It's been a couple of weeks though. I took the cranks off to clean everything and then ended up selling them. Ordered new and they just came in. I then started making some braking system adjustments to find I had the wrong parts - and will re-order them today. Last night I picked up a very rare and tasty goodie that I will install on Thursday when it arrives from a friends house (no I'm not tellin' what it is yet).

If all goes right I'll be back on the trails Saturday.

I kind of like it. I never lurked in the this forum before, but someone told me about all of the histrionics and it's true: The Turner Theater is quite entertaining.

Rode tonight and riding again tomorrow night. I got a new light 2 weeks ago and already used it 6x. Somebody's got to shread these f'n leaves ;)
I just love night riding! It turns old familiar trails into new and exciting trails.

I can't wait to ride again. I landed badly on a jump on Saturday. It ended in a nose wheelie, endo and face plant. I was moving pretty quickly at the time.

I thought I got away with just a few bumps and bruises, but the doc took xrays today and he think I may have a broken scapula and possibly a broken vertabrae in my neck. I'm hoping they're wrong. I find out tomorrow.

If you're posting this message, you're not riding your turner.

Hypocrite.
