Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I really like the color combination. The red and black water bottle cages are a nice touch. Rack up those miles.

That's a beautiful bike. I agree with all the comments about the miles. Some bikes just look like they need tons of miles. Like a real rowdy dog that you have to walk all the time. Enjoy.

Better be careful - that bike might just sneak out the door and go somewhere by itself! It looks READY TO GO!

Beautiful.

Are you going to take it out in the snow, or wait until Spring? It's lovely!
