Did y'all know that lowracers can give you icecream headaches? At least without a tailbox in slushy
conditions. Damn wheel kept spraying icy water in my neck. Luckily my tailbox should be on its way
to me soon.

Also, they inject all road water and dirt directly into your lungs from the front wheel. Is there no
end to our woe.

I may start wearing a dust mask when I ride off road. ha ha :)

Actually the VK2 has the front wheel close enough to the frame to avoid spray which is nice.

I did ride my TE-clone without fenders when going to a hillclimb contest in Sweden and it was
lovely. First the front wheel would toss water in your face and half a second later there would be a
splash in your neck from the rear wheel.

Reminds me of last thursday - headwind and snow right in my eyes. And then I managed to tilt the
Acrofobia in Leitra's driveway - not due to the snow, but at the curly descent, the foot-to-ground
ratio became too much even for
Me. Off course the spectator was Halfdan in his dry, tiltsafe Leitra. GRR!

Where's the spring?

Actually its not too shabby today. Windy but I just rode without gloves with no ill effects and
enjoyed the sunshine. 14C in the sun and 7C out of it. Me like.
