Road Test

Took my Market Pannier by Banjo Brothers out for a ride on the bike today. Had to stop by MyFitFoods and pickup a few meals. Gotta say this thing seems huge. A little smaller than the trunk of my car *grins* at 1500 cubic inches or 13.5 L x 8 W x 15 H). It performed it’s assigned duties admirably. Which is to carry stuff. It took everything I put in it.

The bag did not interfere with pedaling at all so I guess the frame on my bicycle is long enough. Or my feet are short enough.

Riding on main streets during rush hour can be an interesting experience. Beechnut hmmmmm.

I generally try to avoid it at that time of day. Even IN a car.

Only had the potential to get hit twice. One was some person on a cell phone pulling out of a fast food joint. About took my rear end off. I just carried on. Kept calm and kept going. Made it home safe and sound. Well safe. I may not be very sound at the best of times.

Definitely need to do more riding. It kinda makes me feel good. Even if I am cheating…

I’ll put it on the charger tonight. Maybe I can get out in the AM.

Hooray for the good paniers!

Is your CBD set up for bikes? The big city here is a bit better set up than it was. #1 daughter and #1 SIL seems to get along alright most of the time - but they have to be vigilant.

I remember in the 80s down there the bike riders would wear gas masks. Looked kinds funny :)

I know what you mean about feeling good after exercise. Keep it up, T!

And I was joking about the cheating...

We have lots of greenbelts with paths or trails all over. However, that being said this is Houston, Texas and we all love our cars. Vigilance is key.

It's getting better but lookout for the other guy.

And my line about cheating was not aimed at you. Some fools around here. Hell, even Friend KD thinks it is cheating. Always asks, "did you use tom power or all electric?"

I think some folks still have misconceptions about these little monsters.

Yikes maybe try and avoid the rush hour next time for your safety. That would have unsettled me
