O.K. so with so many folks reporting about their new bikes I just had to go shopping for one for myself. I guess I just got all caught up in the excitement and rushed right out and spent as much as I could spare, unfortunately I only had enough resources to buy 1/2 of a bike.
With the economy being so bad and the probability that I'll get layed off, I expect to have a lot of free time this season so I purchased this project while I was still financially solvent. It looks like I'll have a big learning curve ahead of me. Wish me luck.
All joking aside, with the girls all out of the house those things that seemed like frivolous dreams in the past don't seem so frivolous anymore. I've wanted one of these all my life. Today the wife and I went out and bought this one for me. I may never be able to master the skills needed to ride it, but at least I'll know that I tried. When paying for it the clerk asked if I needed a helmet? My bride chirped up with "I think it's a little late for one now." Funny girl!!
