I'm so excited, I just have to rant. Feel free to ignore me.
It warmed up to near freezing today so I took my brand new Tomos to work. I don't think I've ever had so much fun enroute to my job as I did today.
I had cyclists stop me and jealously ask questions. I had pedestrians cheer me on. I had Jeeps cut me off (2 out of 3 ain't bad) (the cool thing about this... normally, when I would ride my bike, all I could do was throw stones at people who cut me off... now I can catch up to them, ride beside them and let them know that I would appreciate-very-much-if they-wouldn't-do-such-things-in-the-future-please)
I think my wife will learn to appreciate it too... I even offered to stop at the grocery store on my way home, just so I could take a detour and ride longer.
I haven't gotten any winter tires yet (found some in town though), but I have faith that the snow will be gone in a couple weeks and it'll be free riding through the summer.
One question.... I pulled into parking lot at work and thought 'where the #%^#$ am I going to park this thing so I don't lose it?'
Do most people chain their mopeds to bike stands or what?
