Had to post something - I finally got my new (to me) 2008 Aurora Elite! It's the most gorgeous thing sitting in my living room and I am now counting the days until snow is gone and I can ride again (yes, I know I could ride in the snow, but I should not). I wanted to ask around the forums for advice to a new rider - I'm just starting commuting seriously so I wanted to see if people had advice on things to watch out for, things I might need (and not think of), etc.
Also, what's with bike names? I couldn't get the right name until I settled on a guy's name...and my boyfriend names his bikes after girls. Makes perfect sense to me....thoughts?
Apologies for rambling, I am REALLY excited about this bike.
