Greetings! My wife and I just bought a pair of LHTs and are planning on getting into touring. Here are a few pics of us buying the bikes and me on our first ride. Such great bikes. I can't wait to see how they handle fully loaded.

It is a baby seat. We also have a baby trailer but the little guy is only three months so we have to hold off a little while longer for the family tours.
We're probably going to start off with something like Santa Barbara to LA. We'll take the train up and ride back. We still have a few things to acquire but it should be in the next few weeks. I'll keep you updated.

Beautiful display of nonviolent resistance. Blessings to those students.

I've watched several videos of the incident, and have seen the officer cordially ask them to leave "private property" and warn them that they were in violation of trespassing laws and disabled American's laws by first being on the property, and second blocking the sidewalk, the protester told the officer they would not leave and the officer informed him what was about to go down.

As far as defamation goes this "movement" is rife with racism and anti-Jewish sentiment. I remember watching the news and visiting Tea Party rallies that were considered dangerous and racist, because individuals opposed Obama's policies; people in the occupy crowd have been saying things like Jews have been run out of x amount of countries time to run them out of one more, now whether the individuals that caused the crises are Jewish or not is irrelevant, if it is relevant then any other race could be demonized and "run out" of the U.S. using the same logic.

It is unfortunate that my generation has such a distorted view of the greatest, albeit, flawed system in the world. I'm for eliminating corruption in government and ending crony capitalism, but to destroy the system for the types of government being proposed by these individuals is saddening. NO country that is not subsidized Militarily by the U.S. has been able to successfully enact Marx's ideas.

Don't they use green screens to do those effects?

I'm stoked to try the new 3-Sum for Altra. All Altra shoes have "zero drop" between the heel and forefoot and spacious toe boxes that are actually shaped like a foot (imagine that). This is their first tri shoe.

Why not get a loan and pay back the loan yourself? I've got 50k piled up and I do not expect you or any other taxpayer to pay it back........ Anyone can get a very low interest loan through the federal government loan program......regardless of income level, etc. If that doesn't cover the cost, get a filler loan from folks like Citi or BofA.
