Wall Street Wakes-Up to the Folly of Samsung’s Volume Strategy

People are finally beginning to see that just because you “ship” more units, it doesn’t translate into an efficient or profitable sales strategy.

C’Ville Ride   Leave a comment

Great ride to C’Ville Wednesday. Started out at 26 degrees and broken Aerostich pants. The zipper pull ended up breaking off after the third repair attempt in Berkeley Springs. I ended up taping the pants with electrical tape!

Marginal GS/PD conditions!   Leave a comment

This winter was endless and this was the first GS/PD ride I was able to take in quite a while. It was on the top of the ridge at Laurel Summit, off RT 271 south of Johnstown. Elevation 2743′

The road was very icy, snowy and muddy and I had to ride the tire-track-width space to get to the end of the trail – an old gas well – nearly 7 miles down the road. And back.


The ride was relatively sloppy but I didn’t dump the bike, so that’s a good thing. Bottom line, any crappy day on a bike is better than any beautiful day in a car. A set of Continental TKC-80 knobbies aired down to about 20lbs of air pressure makes the job a bit easier, too!
