a bike is an appreciative woman....

I finally figured it out....I love to ride and my bike appreciates the good treatment. The best part is, she doesn't nag me or yell at me or drive me frickin insane. Can't beat a combination like that.

My bike abuses me tremendously. Keeps taking me up long or steep hills and and keep reminding me it is time I carried it up some of the hills by putting rocks on the saddle.

My bike is a cruel mistress. Beautiful, instatiable, loves to be spoiled.
She understands my most basic need. That being same as old when Men were Men and Woman like her were objects to spent our passions.

Yet, She also understands that she is a real woman: and knows what it takes to satisfy her. Most cannot.
She recognizes I am such a man and is apreciative and proud. For when other riders admire her (she knows that ALL but I are inferior), I can tell she is most proud when they say "It takes a H*ll of a man to ride a bike like her"

actually i don't atribute a gender to my bike but for the sake of this string ::

my bike is a pain ( list your own weak spot:: ass, neck, legs or arms ) but i keep mounting “her” because on some level when i put “her“ away after a ride i feel like i accomplished something. and its much more than the gray numbers on the face of the cycling odometer.
