As you know, I've had a lot of bikes, and each one was fancier than the one before it. When I got the 'dub in this thread, it was in many ways kind of a novelty. However, it feels great to ride around on one of the simplest bikes around- no power, no brakes, and just a hoot in SF traffic (especially with the knobby's, and being so very, very nimble). It also feels good to not stress out about someone knocking over your $20k supersport when you run in to get a sammich and a soda- if I came back out to find the 'dub on its side, I'm pretty sure that I'd just pick it up and shrug it off. Can't wait to get it out on the trail too! I'm sure that it'll remind me of what I need to work on (either that, or it'll make me feel like a huge friggin' hero), and in the long run, maybe even improve my riding skills.
