Default Re: winter blues

No blues here in Florida- did the usual trip for coffee. Six miles plus round trip- smooth urban roads of Jacksonville
My god, getting old and tired though- never thought I'd feel so tired and still a month to 60.

Near 80, rode in shorts,
typing this tonight with the window open, but it's 'sposed to turn cooler now finally-
been wishing I'd left the AC in the window the past 3 days or so.

Took these photos of the bike before I left- sure can carry a lot
the panniers are lightweight when empty, and squish flat to not catch much air
the trunk rack has that little water bottle pouch, which also holds a bottle of oil nicely when I go for gas.
50 cc motor on Huffy cruiser frame with 700c wheels, 32mm tires,
39 alloy motor sprock bolted to a flip/flop hub.
47 lbs. unloaded total weight.
a great little urban assault vehicle- and thankfully I don't have to take it up and down a flight of stairs anymore!

Got a 1" threaded Shock Fork I found on a trashed frame I think I'll put on this soon-
adds a little weight, but really makes a smoother ride.....
