I'm in for the long haul...

DIY mud flap

I took my LHT out for its first ride of 2008 - in search of espresso beans. I love that first few KMs each year on this bike where I remember exactly how nicely she rides and fall in love all over again. One of my friends thought I had sold my LHT to Doug because of a recent post on this blog. I was aghast - this is the last bike I would sell and only under the most dire of circumstances. It is fast enough to make my road bike unnecessary, comfortable enough to tackle all, but the longest rides, strong enough to haul a ton of cargo and it has a really sweet ride that inspires an ear to ear grin while the kilometers melt away.

Long live the trucker!
