Don't ya just love the good days?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

...when you're rested, feeling really good, cranking hard, no excuses.

Wind be damned, hills fear you, and even cows next to the road look up and say "Wow. That dude's really truckin' today"

Wish I had more days like yesterday....

I thought you were going to say

"When your lowest gear was a 42x21, the wheel debate was 32 or 36 spoke, and a big upgrade to your bike was leather bar wrap."

Or when your bike had a big spring in front of the handlebars, the tires had whitewalls, and the fenders had mud flaps. Oh yea, I can remember that. I wonder how much those bikes really weighed?
