When I got my bike it had 1183 miles on it.

last week I went over double that.

I think this is blog worthy because just by riding it normally I have put more miles on it in two months then the previous owner did in a year and a half.  the bike somehow feels more like mine now.

I’m down in Tampa today hanging out with my pop.  He’s owned lots of bikes before so I’m hoping he can help me get the hang of the normal maintenance like oil change and chain tightening.

If I can lock down how to do that stuff I’ll be able to keep this bike in great condition for years. Considering how little I paid for it, that would feel very sweet indeed.
