    "It's Tuesday. People WORK on Tuesday.'

    Hooky day. Summertime will do that to you. And the high country was calling. We loaded up the rollerskate and zinged up to Kenosha Pass.


    Yes, the bikes are bigger than it is.

    I was here just last week, but it's the ride so nice I had it twice.

    A Dusky Grouse, I think.


    That dizzying, hypoxic, magical feeling of being above treeline.


    Life @ 11,585. Teeming, I say.


    Back in the lowlands.

    I love the car! I've been dreaming of trading in my truck for a 1st gen Miata, but I'm somewhat concerned about its bike hauling abilities. Is that a hitch rack you have on it? It looks like its working for you!

    I think if you put an Xtracycle or Bob on those bikes, you could haul that car just fine.

    I thought that was an LE I saw in one of your other posts. Glad to see another miataphile out there. Great pics as always, the abstract creek would look great as a 36x48 hanging on my wall.

    Ahh, I recognize that parking lot from a few years back. It started raining on the ride back down the hill. It was at that moment I realized, "I need disc brakes."

    There is an 1 1/4" receiver tucked way up under that backside, put in for the sole purpose of hauling bikes. As a bonus it also stiffened up the back end a little bit.

    "Bailing out of work" sounds so stark. I prefer to think of it as "Dynamically reengineering the social constructs pertaining to the work/life dichotomy."

    Nice 93 LE. I've thought about adding a hitch to mine. Does the rear end droop alot with the bikes and rack on it?

    i have a 95 with 1.25" hitch and thule T2 rack. the rear end doesn't drop with bikes on it, or at least i don't notice it if it does. i definitely notice the weight of the T2, it's a pretty heavy rack, but it doesn't effect handling, just acceleration a tiny bit.

    No droop, but I have Koni adjustables that tend to stay in the firmest setting. Your droopiness may vary.

    Ahh the old days. I grew up in Colorado and bought a 96 Miata while I still lived there. Driving topless in the mountains was nice Unfortunately I didn't mountain bike at the time.

    Nice setup with the bike rack. My Miata was totaled a few years ago - but now I have some ideas for my next car - maybe a 4th or 5th gen

    I somehow missed this. Nice looking ride. When was it repainted?

    The front was painted in 97, just after it rolled off the new car lot. How can you tell?
