I find it hard to believe that it was engineered that way, probably more like dumb luck.

    Not sure, but if your relatives ever try to have you committed, I wouldn't mention having done so at your hearing.

    Come to think of it, sinking a lot of time and $$$ into a heavy 30+ y/o bike doesn't make a lot of sense to people outside this little asylum of ours.
