Just saw this post.

I picked up a Burley Bossa Nova frame and a set of wheels from a guy who was giving up on a project and completed the build. I only rode it a few times, trading off short rides with my twin daughters. It's been sitting gathering dust, the a couple of weekends ago I talked one of my daughters into doing the Portland Tweed ride with it. It ended up being 30 miles round trip. She liked it enough that we rode 32 yesterday. I think I've got a new stoker.

I had a tandem a few decades ago, went through two stokers (girlfriends). Had lots of fun with it.

Tips on being a successful captain if needed...
If someone tells you that you have enough bicycles and you don't need any more, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
