This explains so much. I ride quite a bit both motor and mt bike as well as road bike. No wonder I am so smart. Have to go, just got from a ride and I am working on a physics problem to do with lasers.

Very interesting. The only graph that meets Barnett's criteria is the cubical graph which is indeed Hamiltonian. Just sayin

Saddle, I'm here to tell ya its downhill from here on. Let's just say we have a greater sense of self preservation than those young whipper snappers who think they have a lot to prove to the world.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.
