I'm obviously not taking enough pictures. I spent all my time riding
and talking to people, I guess.

This is all I've got so far.

exact reason that seat needs to be... Altered.

There are 3 main changes I need to make:
- different, gel padded seat
- the foot peg under me need to be replaced or dropped down 3". There's a bolt in solution to this.
- bigger grips. The small grips on the bike now forced my hands too tightly - hands and wrists are cramped.

After that it should actually be worlds better.

I think I've decided to stop trying to talk you out of this and instead start encouraging you to do this. Not because I'm being supportive of my clubmate, mind you, but because I think you deserve to suffer immensely as punishment for not listening to me.

Tragedy Strikes!
Tragedy! Jess becomes Roadkill

Jess was chasing a loose bit of farkle and did not hear the ElectraGlide coming up the road.
We waved, we yelled, to no avail. Jess's focus on the farkle bit was unwavering.
