    Don't forget - it also has a carb

    Also, FWIW, selling the auto was the plan from before day one... few of these guys can confirm

    I thought I was already serious. Riding a bicycke across several states is no minor task.

    Still haven't bought me a set of clips and shoes yet and I'm hitting the road this afternoon for another multi day bike trip.

    I meant getting serious about your performance.

    Be sure to post vids on this trip. I enjoyed the last ones.
    PS: don't get too cocky about riding 60+ miles a day. 60 miles at sea level where the biggest hill is a speed bump is like 20 miles up here in my neck of the woods.

    We did about 65 one day going to Greenevilke and back. The first part was fun but being Greeneville was much lower meant we paid dearly getting back home.
