    Newbie commuter

    Hi all-
    I'm just getting back into road riding after not owning a bike for several years. I just picked up a Centurion LeMans RS (late 80's) and I really enjoy the rides I've taken. I've got a 28mile round trip to work and back; riding 3 days/week, but I hope to ride everyday after a while.
    Thanks to A.Whitmore for his article on the history of Centurion bikes! I gleaned a lot of useful info from the article and the posts afterward!

    I'll get some pics up of my bike soon, and during its few upgrades.

    Welcome to the forums. I, too, have a 28-mile RT commute, and I love it! I used to have a Centurion, back in the late 80s.
