My total mileage for the year is 10,388.6. Not bad for a 4 mile commute. The two weeks touring through Quebec, New Brunswick and New England helped.

    Thanks for keeping up on the blog. I stumbled across it today and it makes me glad I’m a rider, even if I waited a bit longer than I wanted to do it.

    I drive a Zuma 50cc on my short commute, or to run errands. I only avoid driving when there is ice or it’s below 10 degrees, neither of which tend to happen too often or for too long in CO.

    I’ve also decided that my next bike will be a Buddy. Zumi (my Zuma) needs a bigger brother!
