    Where are you posting from? The folks on the East Coast are just getting up and the ones on the West Coast are still sound asleep.

    Hard taskmaster.

    As to the bike, you love it. End of story.

    I going to take a different tack here.

    The rules must be in writing somewhere, verbal or rumor rules are unenforceable.
