My weight which was normally round the 210-215lb mark is higher now at 230 and rising, what with the drugs and exercise.

You'll get there eventually and wonder how you managed I know I do.
Amen to that. It's been almost 7 weeks and 3 Lbs is about as much as I can lift with the left arm. Typing one-handed sucks.

To keep motivated I bought a Husqvarna 511 SMR and I go out to the garage every few days and start it up. It smells good.

Even though Marc is not known for his 'taking things easy' approach, there is a championship on the line and agree with what you say that this is not so much a Honda track these days.

For my thinking, Marquez needs only to stay near Dovi and pressure him to see if he can get a mistake that will then win Marc the title.

With all this going on, it could be a race for someone to sneak a win while the two protagonists get side tracked and no, not making adverse suggestions but MM wins the title even if both Dove and himself DNF and Rossi does not win ..........

Well mine won't cut down trees, but at 260 Lbs wet making 54 hp - it does everything else quite nicely.

You havent gone eMTB yet then?

Mind you for the price of an eMTB you can get one of the SWM versions of Kesh's Husky.

Quite simply I don't have the free cash to buy an E-bike, and to be honest I don't think I need one at this point. I rode this thing up the bump track weekend just gone. Took me over two hours to get there, but worth it to ride back down. BUMP TRACK - Ride Cairns

Yeah they are kinda ridiculously expensive atm. I put a mid-drive pedal assist kit in my DHmtb. You can shuttle yourself with it, so now I find I ride heaps more.

Youd have a lot of downhill stuff up there wouldnt you?
