Tameing the Screaming Yellow Zonker

Mrs. Grouch and I took the Zonker out this morning for the first time since the infamous Mother's Day Massacre when I got my bell rung. I was pretty anxious when we made the first launch, and we only went around 11 miles, but overall the ride went well. We definitely got smoother and better in every way as the ride went on.

Progress is good!

It's good to be back on the tandem. I'm trying to decide if this was a good enough ride for our bike to deserve a present. I've got my eye on some seriously sexy leather handgrips.
