Howdy from NWMO

I live along the route of the recent Big BAM, I am 44 and got back into riding last summer. I rode an Austrian Steyr 10 speed throughout the 90's, I've upgraded bikes as I've been lucky enough to find them. This area has been kind to me, I've practically stolen some great bikes. I've got bad knees and sciatica in the left leg, the low impact of cycling does wonders for me. Most days I am towing a 4 year old daughter in her Burley trailer, went from a 1991 Schwinn Crisscross to a '97 Trek 730 for that. My free days I put some miles on a Takara Deluxe Cruising 12 speed, my personal favorite. I've read nothing but good about Japanese bikes, and can only echo those sentiments.

That'd be a Takara Deluxe Touring, I always get mixed up.
