My wife is purchasing a recumbent. It is a 2002 Vision R40 with under seat steering, mercedes silver color, with a day bag and water bladder. The color is one of the custom colors that vision offers. She will not have the bike in time to ride this year, so she'll wait until next year. Thats fine with her.
She will probably not become a member here, but please welcome her as a new 'bent rider all the same and I'll be sure to pass it on to her.
