So much truth in all the above. Tomorrow I leave to ride the Oregon Bicycle Ride for a week, 2 years ago that kind of vacation would not have crossed my mind, now it seems (I'm hoping, haven't been on anything that long before), to be my idea of the perfect vacation!

Speaking of couch potatoes, has anyone been couch / sofa shopping lately? Geesh! Now they come with one, two or even THREE built in recliner functions, some have drink holders and/or built-in TV dinner trays. I think I saw one that had a built-in ice chest even -- people are so lazy they can't even get up to go to the fridge? Next they'll come with built-in toilets!

So few couches are comfortable that I rarely sit on one, much less lie on one. But I'm too tall for most of them & they're not comfortable. That does not, of course, mean that they don't want an arm&leg for them.

Sharper Image has always had the recliner that I wanted...

how about designing one that has a built-in set of pedals, flywheel, gears so that you can do your training without even getting out of the recliner?

They already have one. It is called a recumbent.
