I spend at least 10:1 time tinkering with the bike as compared to actually riding it. The problem solving is a creative process in itself and the process is a great deal of the pleasure for me. I get it running, find something else I want to "improve" and the bike is back on the stand. A lot of people will never want that and that's OK but most will appreciate my getting value from it. My understanding is that for many people we have our most "profound" thoughts when doing something mundane. Spinning a wrench on a bicycle isn't really all that demanding at times and it allows my mind to wander. I can think about the little things that are nagging at me or I can think about nothing in particular. It's wonderful. Riding my own motorized bicycle is a bonus and a fun one at that!
