I'm with Gene.
Nothin' wrong with slow n' comfortable, but then there's nothin' like fast n' exciting. I love the hair-raising descents and full-spin carving turns! You can't match that any other kind of bike. I say take advantage of what some bents can do. Let's hope others find out, too.
Yes, you'll go "boom" if things go wrong, so gotta weigh risks. But, dammit, before I pass my twilight years in a rocking chair I wanna feel the thrill.... hey, it's not as risky as sky-diving when you're 80 (and I've got 30 years to think about that one.....)
I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
Good night and joy be with you all.
