    All choked up... :-)

    I've been away on business for a couple of days. So what is the first thing I do when I get back? Check out the 50+ Forum, of course!

    I didn't go into withdrawal, but I sure love coming back to this wonderful group of people who share so freely so much of themselves with one another -- bike tips, great rides, personal challenges, health tips, and the list goes on and on. What a great group. I'm grateful to you guys and gals, and glad to be back home.

    Oh -- that reminds me -- what bike should I buy?

    Digital Gee can you please keep us informed when you're out for awhile. We kinda worry about you going out and buying a bike without the group consultation :-)

    I love you, dude, but you're not getting my bud lite.
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    Have you thought about getting a recumbent tandem downhill racer? Carbon fiber, of course.

    I knew you'd miss me... Oh and not to be a squealer or a rat or anything like that but a little birdie told me your pal Webb Diego is probably NOT GOING TO LIKE WHAT HAS BEEN GOING ON in a certain e-bay related thread while you've been gone.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    Like the sound of the downhill bit but CF? The speed my pilot hits things it would not last long and Recumbent? Don't think so. As to the Tandem bit- They get heavy with a Lazy stoker that doesn't bother to keep in touch with his mates. Tandems also take a bit of getting used to so if Gary ever comes to the UK on one of his business trips, I'll get him out on our hills in the Mud so he can find out if he can hack a real ride on a real bike. I'll put him out with my Pilot, And that will make him realise that a nice slow lighweight solo has a lot going for it. Something Like a Giant Cypress or a Single speed should do.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Sorry, no bikes available at the present time. We can get you a good deal on the Coronado Bridge though.

    ...and not just any trike, get a vintage trike with a Corgi, like the one that BFer 2manybikes owns. He claims the women go wild and flock to meet "Bailey."

    DG welcome back. Forget the new bike and get out there and ride. I used to live up in South OC, and if I still lived there I would personally drive down to take you out and buy a bike. But since Montana is a bit far to drive, eve to meet the DG, you will just have to make do.

    Yes, you should buy a bike immediately, and it should be this one:

    Actually, there's quite a bit of truth in this, but unfortunately, my name seems to be permanently attached to my bank account, and my bank account doesn't (at least at this moment) speak CF!

    Or not. I love the dramatic cliffhangers DG leaves us with every time he visits a bike shop.
