    It Followed Me Home. Can I Keep It? 2011 Giant XTC 1

    It followed me home today. I promise to take care of it and get it dirty and beat the living hell out of it:thumbsup:

    I had a temporary raised bar put on, plus my trusty Pure V Seat and Ergon grips and the Azonic 420s. Here is the killer though. I am still not released from my recent surgery to ride. St. Patties day will be my Go Date. I couldn't even take the bike off of the rack. Had to get my wife to do it as it is about 11# over my 15# current lift limit. I just could not leave it at the shop any longer. I at least had to get it home and into my office so we can get to know each other

    As soon as the weather straightens out, i will get outdoor pics up (you know, the one leaned up against the white garage door). I am so stoked. What a cool bike:cool:

    I was the same way when I got my Sun Equalizer wheelset; I know it was going to be a MAJOR step up from the damned Deore disc/Rhyno Lite setup I'd had crutching me through the winter.

    Trust...it's worth the wait...........

    If that is not motivation enough to get healed up quickly then I don't know what is.

    Nice looking machine that. Good luck on the recovery so you can get out on the road on it! Just remember, small steps - don't let your enthusiasm out strip your physical limits!

    No, you absolutely cannot keep it - I'll take it off your hands - you know, for your own protection :-)
