    Default Still around

    Hi guys im still around, hope you are all well

    Small update on my Birkin 7, (Grace)

    New color (Mazda Crystal Sol Red), new tires, new grill, new paint on all the wheels, all due to a small incident at work 8 weeks ago

    Tires are Federal 595 RS R 195/50ZR15 semi slick road/track, sticky as hell compared to the Toyo T1Rs

    I sure am Croc, 7 years now still with Yakima, heading to Portland Oregon in a week for 3 weeks for some training on the US Yakima system and having a weeks holiday in Portland too, as I have never been to the USA

    Portland Oregon? Should be an interesting trip. Town is mostly run by hippies and communists but they do a good range of beers by microbreweries which redeems them in my view.

    Could be worse I suppose, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, all of Florida, Arkansas, etc. Think yourself lucky!

    Kiwi: drive to the coast to see haystack rock at Cannon Beach. Rt 101 along the coast is a scenic drive. There is also Mt Hood. I'm sure your colleagues will fill you in on additional touristy things to do

    Car looks sharp

    That's outdated information. Many of the communists in power have been replaced by conflicted anarchists. Agree about the microbreweries though. Also a good foodie town. If you like books, make sure to visit Powell's which bills itself as the world's largest independent bookstore -- it's enormous!
