Something different for discussion on  the blog.  I am planning to do  
some long distance touring this summer on my 95 Gpz and have been a  
little concerned about the fitness part of it ( back ,arms,etc.).   
I've read some of the books on long distance bike touring, has some  
good tips. I also am a avid bicycler ( put in about 3k a summer, some  
100m days).  But I think a found a great type of class that is going  
to be very helpful.  Its called  a " palates" class that uses a  
"stability ball".  You do all these types of exercises that increase  
core strength (middle part of your body) and improve your balance.  
Really works on the abs, back , shoulders , and upper legs.  Do a lot  
of balancing on a big ball while your do all these different types of  
exercise.  The pros have been using these types of exercises for  
years on the off season. Try it.

Does anybody know were I could get a tank bra for this bike?  Any  
recommendations for a tank bag and some luggage?
