In for a tune up
Thursday, May 03, 2012
Well, it was time. The LHT has gone in for an overhaul. That bike has carried me for over 10,000 miles without so much as a broken spoke. Brian, my bike shop guy, told me I can probably get her back by Saturday. He hasn't seen her since I changed jobs in July of last year. He ordered the LHT for me in January of 2010. She came in at the end of March and the love affair was born. Our first ride was Saturday, 27 March 2010. A nice 50 miler. Well, here it is 10,000 miles later.
My wife just got her new Electra Townie last week. My hope is that she develops the same love for riding that I have. Her Townie already has a name, Ziva. Beautiful deep purple with white fenders, rear rack, and basket. I can't wait for our first ride together.
