    TW made me fat!!

    I'm a bigger guy, used to wear XL tall jackets, occasionally a XXL tall shirt until I got the TW. Went to cycle gear and tried on a few jackets. Damn I need a 3X in motorcycle jackets!#!! What's up with all the skinny cycle guys?!? No wonder I flatten out the suspension. Motorcycle riding clothes are made for skinny runway models. Lol

    Don't you guys ever have a few beers or cinnamon rolls? Dang so it goes. Ordered a Joe Rocket Atomic size 3X from Amazon. Ate a half baked chicken, some chicken strips and vegetables and potatoes - and opened the box. Yep I am now a 3X! Who could have known?!? Lol you guys rock! #GYG

    It's the suspension bro...

    Just be thankful you aren't a Cyclegear 5X like me...

    I had 2 Cinnamon rolls today...



    ***For every decade of riding I've had to add one more X, Cyclegear doesn't have a 6X. Now what will I do??

    I find the opposite, everything I buy in motorcycle gear is too large.

    6 decades of riding? That's a lot of beer and skinned knuckles.

    Yeah i had a partner, now deceased, that always said if I'd known I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself. 61 and climbing. Getting up stairs and getting off the ground are the most obvious defects.

    I've said that many times also.

    It only gets worse...haha. Getting old isn't for sissies. It's been a well lived life, but it sure hasn't been easy.

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    I am starting to go in the other direction. After realizing taking 20lbs off the TW is nearly impossible and likely would be very expensive, I am improving my power to weight ratio by eating healthier! All kidding aside, plan to ride the 6 Days of Michigan with my son next summer. Only way I will make it is dropping another 30 lbs (20+ off since spring). When one 70 mile ride, chasing KTMs and YZs lead to three days of almost incapacitating soreness, I got the wake up call....lol
