Praise God! I'm 'Bent!

Well it seems after much lusting in the flesh after every recumbent I see... I'm about to finally get one! I entered the 'Bentrider Online car free challenge and although my essay didn't come in first place I was given honerable mention of sorts and the editor is making it possible for me to get on a Sun EZ-1. No, its not a Gold Rush Ti, But it will get me around for all my commutting. Not having to be in pain is a cool benefit as well! thank you Bryan Ball. Check out the site if you never have.

I should be getting it in about two weeks. He has a busy schedule right now. I think I'll hold off on a new lusting subject for a while. You're absolutly right though, A short wheelbase will probably follow. Most of my riding is city streets, lots of traffic, potholes, ETC... A SWB makes alot of sense. But for now I'm just thrilled to get the knot out from between my shoulders. No more sore wrists, and a cushy tushy to boot! It's as close to Heaven as I can get for the moment!

Well, I may have been a little hasty in my 'Bent declaration. I E-mailed Bryan with 'Bentrider Online today to see when the new hot rod would arrive and it seems it has yet to be ordered for another couple of weeks. Well at least I'm on my way to benthood! And of course I still praise God for it!
