Default Re: Finally Here.

Welcome to the forum. I think the addiction has to do with childhood and the kind of rite of passage that came with riding a bicycle, experiencing speed and freedom, feeling wind in the face. It was a big deal and is something many of us left behind and forgot about as soon as we got cars and could go faster, go on dates, step onto a treadmill to pay for the things, got married, got kids, got bills to pay and felt freedom slip away into the slavery of adulthood. Somehow the motor on the bike is a way to awaken and set free the child we all were. Don't be surprised to find yourself smiling a lot as you ride.
And don't forget the helmet. Have fun and welcome to the forum.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
