I like 'em natural. No artificial enhancements. A little patina welcome. A slightly cushioned ride is much more enjoyable. Sometimes, it's necessary to wear fenders. Minimal touch-up is ideal and, for god's sakes, no repaints.

Well, for public riding, you may want to invest in some serious paint.
If not, then just make sure your tubes are good and you have proper lube.
For safety, of course.

I did. No surprise. Big Beautiful Woman. That is what comes up on the first page. Also Bath & Body Works. And a lot of jiggy websites.

Surely you are not drawing a comparison between your lissome Frejus and some Valkyrie!
