Ok, it's not exactly a newborn, but it's still new to me.
Long-time readers may remember my previous bike. That old timer was a rare collector's item that unfortunately had seen its day. For the last 6 months it's been sitting in my garage collecting dust because it wasn't running anymore.
Then just the other day, a guy who had seen it last year gave me a call and asked me if I wanted to trade it even up for this bike. He let me drive it for a week before I had to decide but I was sold after the first 10 minutes. This bike rides smooth, has tons of horsepower and, as you can see, is in VERY nice condition.
My brother may not agree (he thinks I should have held on to the old one), but I think I made a good trade. And after our 300 mile trip together this last weekend I'm even more convinced.
And, if my wonderful luck doesn't bring rain every day for the rest of the summer - I just may get the chance to ride it!
