    Was that a Simon and Garfunkel song? Discounting the problems, it looked like a nice outing.

    I was having a lot of trouble with breaking spokes, because of a condition I have called fatassitis. I solved that problem by buying new wheels with double wall rims. The new wheels are practicly indestructable for street riding.

    Thanks. I never paid attention to much way back when. I'm just recently in the last couple of years trying to get a decent library together. Don't have anything by the BYRDS.

    Nice Vid, CR500. I have a fondness for stars & stripes fuel tanks.
    Keep an eye on YouTube. I used that music in a 'Captian America' video and they removed it. I had to redo with new songs. So far, so good. Thanks for sharing yours.
