    I'm addicted to my bike!

    I haven't ridden in 12 years and now I look for any excuse to ride, is there a cure for this?

    I hear you there. The last two weeks were spent doing a final project. The few days is cramming for my friday math exam. The weekend is for cramming for mondays exam. The days between then and thursday is for writing a paper. The days after that? Riding bliss.

    I always feel like riding whenever it's dark outside, and I can't actually ride... then by the morning I'm tired and don't feel like getting up, but going for a leasurely ride in the morning is a great way to wake up.

    why would you want a cure
    "I'm; young enough to know the right car to buy yet grown enough not to put rims on it. I got that 6-deuce, with curtains, so you can't see me and I didn't even have to put tints on it."
