Re: Caution! Fenders are Death!
@ crassius, sounds like a life well lived, not that everyone gets these opportunities though. Sorry to hear about your cancer.
Philosophically I'm in the 'life as it comes' and to be in the moment. I see motorized bikes and small two wheeled vehicles in general as works of art that reflect their owner's aspirations and are really fun transportation. And in that philosophy I see them as 'small bites' that are more interesting than owning or being owned by what you have or do.
Low impact, made for little consumption of resources, one less cage on the road. It's been my philosophy for many years.
So anyways get out into that shop and fix those damn fenders. This shouldn't need to be in the realm of rocket science.
