Hey man! Welcome. Great to have ya here.

I haven't heard of "Bilboa"...I'm going to have to check it out.

You may wanna hit the space bar and a random punctuation now and then...easier to keep track of your post.


Sucks when your bike is down for maintenance, but it'll be that much sweeter when you get your brakes and rubber.


Cheers.

Welcome aboard "hodgey". I was 14 when I went on my first multi-day tour with a school buddy. Although I had an old, huge, heavy, man's single gear bike, we had a fantastic adventure (52 years ago), and if I could turn the clock back, would love to do it again.
