Dr. Hellyes checks in with a new bike

Hi gang! I hope everyone is hunky-dory! I've been frantically busy with grad school and the job and the family and have been AWOL for awhile. I found time to get a new ride. It's a Lightning A10 recumbent and it's like piloting a spaceship or some crap. I love it! Take care everyone and ride safe!

Oh and that's Web Center at my beloved Old Dominion University!

From a FG to a recumbent? That's quite a leap!

Enjoy your recumbent. That looks like a nice fun bike.

Hey Donna!

Hi Donna! How're ya doin'? Yeah, this one's got a few more gears than my fixed. It's really a blast! If you ever get a chance to try a recumbent by all means do.
Take care of yourself!

Hey thanks!

Hey Alfster! Don't try one if you can't afford one, heh! I tried one at my local shop and got the recumbent bug big-time. I checked Craigslist daily for awhile before I landed this one.
