Dave’s Fine Machine 1997-2001.
Until April, 2001, this was my baby and my proud bike:
However, since I was moving to the city of Chicago, I decided:
- I did not want to keep my baby out on the street, and I would not have access to a garage.
- My bike was born to ride… and not this stop and go city shit. It would be cruel to keep such a machine and not ride the open road.
- It’s a good 45-60 minute ride on really crappy freeways to get to decent riding areas around here, so I knew I wouldn’t hit the country-side much.
So painfully, and with much internal debate, I sold her. Rest assured, I put her new owner through the paces, and upon passing a rigourous interview, I let her go. *sniff*
