True Love.
Give someone something they really want. That means that you must know what they want.
What are you going to do for her?

Yes she definitely is. I was a widower, we have been together for three years. Shes also ex-Navy so we have a lot in common. And if you don't know what she wants from me, then the "Eighty Plus (80)" forum may be more your speed.
Picture me with a big smile and a twinkle in my eye. LOL.

Just got back from my first 25 miles. Wow I don't understand it but this bike lets me climb hills almost twice as fast. On one of the hills on my way home from the beach I normally crank up the ?%$#@ at about 3 MPH on my touring bike, But on this 6 or 7 MPH. Go figure.
