Yes, greetings from Western Montana, where Gail and I live at the foot of the Mission Range. I bought my 1st "ten speed" in 1967 and took my 1st tour that year too, a 600 miler from L.A. to the Bay Area, up the east side of the Sierras on Hwy 395. Done over 10,000 miles of touring since, all on diamond frames, but just bought my first recumbent, which will be here via FedEx next Tuesday. It's a Rans "high racer" F5. Wish me luck!
