Starting to get delrious over this wait

our co-motion primera should be shipping sometime in the next 7 days or so. I am getting really envious of all you people out there enjoying the ride. To burn time I have noticed that I have logged over 500 miles for the month of August. I did that by riding 4 days a week. man I am getting antsy.

I know how you feel. It took us over a month from hearing about our bike to getting it into our hands. We've had possession for 3 days but haven't yet ridden. AAarrrgghhh!!!

I think it was 20 weeks for our first Erickson.... Fortunately, we still had our Santana for all but two weeks. But still, we can appreciate how anxious you can get. I think we set a record with our travel tandem at 16 months, but there were extenuating circumstances and no pressing needs.

Ain't that the truth.

Actually, today is day 3; I just have to put on stoker pedals & adjust the front brakes. There've been too many other competing chores to get this thing done. Should be able to get some good rides in on the long weekend.

Forget those other chores...they 'aint going anywhere...and neither are you if you don’t get that tandem together…..

Any folks who live near Baltimore or Washington may want to try the Bay Country Century ride tomorrow. I have stoker #2 lined up and we are doing the metric portion. Weather should be wonderful!

This link should help any who are interested.
