First ride in my new bike! Well it's a 2010 but it's new to me :) I know - I'm positive I looked like a dork but I just wanted to spend some time on it and get a feel for what eventually will be my commute/fun machine. First thing I noticed is the way I have to merge w traffic and the terrifying way I have to be a part of traffic. I've ridden bikes since my bmx days but on my bmx I recklessly darted in an out of traffic, not the most responsible thing to do!
It's very strange to wear a helmet though I know it's a must. I've seen friends get in accidents and it's not pretty . Lots of wind, had a nice push on the way back home. It's so nice to put down mileage of any kind on here :)

    ha ha ha! Thank you for posting this, I almost posted "this is going to sound weird but I'm contemplating naming this bike, it just feels right but I haven't decided on a name for her yet"
    I totally don't feel weird now!
    Nerd bonus - my top three names are sci-fi related - (since the all white looks futuristic)
