Re: I'm So Glad To Be Here - Grateful To Have Found This Forum!!!
Welcome to the forum.
Justa note. Don't forget a tandem bike. You get to have a guest with you and or redisign the seating area and utilize it for hauling other stuff, like groceries, etc. Endless opportunities. I'm not sure but it may be worth looking into, but I've read some of the laws and find that a 2 seat bicycle "might" get around certain specifications of local certification....opens it up to opinions which may be "bent". Again I'm not certain but you might look into it.
I get to Joliet to visit my son now and again. I trailer (convert from my boat) my tandem to locations for my wife and I to ride. We can meet up sometime in the summer possibly.
You've found a great forum.
