Good to see you on the road yesterday. I have noticed a big change in your appearance, it seems that in the past you were just keen to get on the bike and commute sort of get the job done. I expect that has not changed but what I see has is the visible presence. Good to see an impressive tail light headlight and even the wheel lights. I only saw those when I passed you at about Blackburn. If some clown can't see you now then there is no hope for any of us.
Cheers, Jack.

Hi Michael,
I've got a mob doing ATB this year. Probably about 50% fixed. I've hired a boat previously so that we don't pay money to a Melbourne Subaru Dealership (BV). We go to Queenscliff first though, and ride much lower gear ratios... 70-75 gear inches approx. If you're interested, drop me an email.
