    Unverified Ownership All roads lead back to Mazderp - altoid's second Mazda3

    Took the car in for its first service in my ownership! Yes, I bought it a year and a half ago. No, I don’t really care, since I barely drove 7,500 miles in that time and it was quite pandemic(k)y outside for much of it. As anticipated, there was a bit of a to-do list along with the requisite...

    I'm amused that FG's first (?) electric Mustang isn't in the US. :D Looks gawjus in that blue, at the very least. 😍

    Brief photo update time! Had some shopping errands to do last week, so naturally took the bike. Can confirm two pillows can be strapped to it without noticeable adverse affects up to (an alleged) 90mph. A 52L top case will get you far. Seriously useful just about every single ride. ...

    Bicycles!

    Here’s a boring picture of two usable wheels: Only the rear needed to be trued, and only one spoke was busted. Possible test ride tomorrow.

    Wow, the shop is quick: they called this morning to say the wheels are ready for pickup today. I didn't even have time, so I'll get them tomorrow. Possible test ride this weekend, though gym on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday might make that a bit much. 😂
