Well, it's been just over a year since I got the new tandem, I've put 10,000km on it in that time, and had an experience yesterday that showed I was now thoroughly tandemized. We were well into a 400k brevet, and stopped at a convenience store. I went into the store to get stuff, walked to the back of the store, and started to say something over my shoulder to Sharon, assuming she was STILL right behind me. Oops! Doesn't work that way!
