It's Nice to Ride a Different Bike

Today, I rode this bike. I packed the laptop in the pannier. It's wrapped in a neoprene laptop sleeve and the bag is padded with a section of sleeping pad. It seems like a good way to carry a laptop. A couple of weeks ago, I didn't have the pannier attached correctly and it fell off in the street. I was surprised to find the laptop is working fine. But who can tell with Vista?

This bike has no studs on the tires and the conditions are fine for that now. The ice is gone from most trails and major streets. I had to walk down my alley though. The alley is a rutted mess.

I hope you got home before it started snowing. I nearly fell in my driveway tonight.

That's funny! I have Vista on my work laptop, and some things that I have been doing for years are now not available. And it's not intuitive what has replaced that function! Maybe I need to take the 90 minute tour...

Seems like a step backwards to me. Like IE7!

Ha! Your vista statement is so common.

Personally I don't need to take any work stuff home. When I ride to work it's just me, my bike and food.

That bike looks snazzy.
