    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.
