Google Docs

I’ve been looking for an easy way to keep up with maintenance on the bike. I think I’ve found it. Google Documents. I’m able to update via Google and since I have the doc published it updates within 5 min on my site. You can see the Google App spreadsheet in action by going to the C109RT page. UPDATE 2/4/2008 More fun with google apps :-). I’ve added the trip stats from my Oct trip to the Oct 2008 Trip Overview.

Driving Habits

As I was coming home tonight I started thinking about the things I do differently since I started riding again. And also a few things that other people do that pisses me off..Here are a few: Pouring a drink out – I’ve been guilty of this before. Pull up to a stop light or something and just dump the remains of a Burger King drink out. I’ve had this happen numerous times when I was on the bike..The way I position myself is closest to the yellow line so I can see the driver’s mirror. Of course I don’t assume …
