I greatly enjoy sharing your WT cyberspace and wanted to check in. I've ridden two wheels forever (powered and pedaled). I stopped riding a clunky crotch rocket a few years ago, which in tight turns felt like I was wrestling an alligator. My SO's interest in bikes motivated me back into the fray. Now the modern bikes are much more light, lively, fun and reliable. I am very grateful so much valuable and diverse info has been shared by experienced WT members on riding safely and bike maintenance. Have fun and ride safe!
