    it's a great day for a new bike

    After so much research, thinking, research, and more thinking...we have our new bikes. The green beast is mine. The pearly one is hers. Can't wait to break them in.

    You're gonna love' em!

    So that's what a LHT looks like without thousands of miles and stuff hanging off them all over the place :-)

    Congratulations on two sweet looking rides.
    With every ride, I get a little stronger. I gain a little stamina. I gain a little pride. And so I await the next ride...

    New bikes are like new sneakers when you were a kid, they make you faster. Nice choice of bikes!

    Congrats! Few things are better than a NBD! Hope you and your lady enjoy them thoroughly. I think the pearly white is very pretty, too.

    We've now added lights and water bottle cages...and more to come later. They sure are nice all naked; but they are begging for more stuff!

    What components? I see the bar ends and the triple crankset on the non-disc LHT. More details/pics?

    I hope the rear tires don't last you 3 years. With any luck, you will have worn them out in two years.
    Way to go. Enjoy the cool breeze as you cruise down the highway.

    Just got back from a nice ride. The B67 is sooooooo much better for me than the WWB SST Comp. With the WWB, I could barely get 2 miles before my butt bones couldn't take any more. With the B67, I didn't feel anything back there after 2 miles. I absolutely love this bike!
