So i have had the new bike since the beginning of the month, but since I don't have a garage, much less a white garage door, I have been trying to find the right backdrop.
hopefully this will be acceptable. :)
I managed to get out today and get in a little over 20 miles, not bad since that is slightly more than any ride last year. And of course the fact that it was 45 degrees.

Beautiful bike. Hows that seat working for ya? Looks a little out of my league for comfort. It was an absolutely beautiful day as it hit 50 degrees here in the Lehigh Valley. I also took my new bike out. I have had it for a couple of months now, but have been riding a couple others due to the situations and weather. Also finally took a picture today.
Once again congrats on the new bike, and finally being able to put up a BF acceptable picture! ;) Here's Mine.

The seat is ok, i had to replace the stock one because I felt like I was riding on my colon, and this was the best one my LBS had on hand. I plan to put a brooks on it eventually, but I have to build up the bank account a bit first.

Nice, I've seen MotoB rides at an LBS. They look great!

It is definately a whole differant ride than the mountain bike with slicks I used last year.

I love to see the Motobecane name. Nostalgia. Looks nice.
I'm gonna need a riser stem like that before I get back on the longer rides, since my neck has been a major problem the last few years.
PS. I swear it was 40 degs in my basement when I did the trainer today. With the pipes all insulated and a new boiler, the basement gets no heat anymore. No wind down there, though!
