The way back is a lot better since there's no side streets I can open it up and just coast down when I get close to the shop...
YUP, Aint nothing quite like the feeling ya get coming to a busy intersection and finding out ya got NOTHIN for brakes. Yer cheeks start squeezing the seat and yer trying to wear out a good pair of shoes on the pavement, Flintstone style brakes, Yabba dabba doo.
