so no-go on SSWC08 -- they were "already full". yeah right. I'll bet they made room for their friends first. As my friend said -- "do you think Gary Fisher or Travis Brown waited until 3 am EST on New Years eve to register"? Got my Vanilla in and assembled except for the tires -- the winter tires I ordered have not shown yet so I have to move them off another bike. And I did my first long ride of the year - 20 miles of mtn biking at Reimer's Ranch. My front wheel slipped out on an off-camper turn and I caught a nice tree trunk, sending me flying -- more carnage for my poor left knee. Otherwise the ride was a lot of fun and I did not feel as out of shape as I feared I was.
