New to the forum, old to biking

I've been enjoying reading this forum. I ride a Motobecane from bikesdirect, so not to fancy, but the price is right. Its my second one in two years. The first was wrecked by a drunk in a pickup making a left turn... so I'm happy to be alive. My previous bike was a Fuji "Special Road Racer" bought used in 1975. My 26 year old son rides that now. I ride about 5000 miles a year, about half of that in club rides. I did the M24HC this year and have been doing some self contained trips, I pull a Burley trailer for that. I have always asked myself what the attraction of riding a bicycle around is. Not sure I have a good answer for that, but I sure enjoy it. I enjoy drueling over really nice bikes and enjoyed the thread that had pictures of peoples bikes... really nice!

Welcome ! Interesting take on the Motobecane, though I've read things to that effect before. It seems that ordering a bike, then assbl. it one's self works for you.
They sure look good on paper. I reckon you're due for a plus 3k rig in April and still keep your current rig as well of course. You've an impressive riding dossier too.
