Riding the Prairies

Gee, perhaps a time trial bike might have been another good way to go to cover that much straight and relatively flat distance. Couldn't be as comfy as that Barcolounger you've got spec'd for a saddle on the 'bent, though.

Loving the plains photos. What an incredible landscape. So vastly different from my daily views. I like the photo shot in the mirror also.

Smudge, your right, not near as comfy. What's more, I'd have a hard time believing it would be near as fast. I would not have believed it until I actually had a bent, but on the flats, any DF bike would have a hard time keeping up. In fact, they just plain can't. It all about the aero-dynamics.

Doug, Thanks. I can be a bit plain to some I'm sure, but this is where I was raised, this is what I love. I've spent several months working in the Rockies, and they are most incredible. But to look at every day, I would oddly enough choose the prairies. It is nice to see all types of landscapes. Cheers.

Love the plain shots. To me, your world looks strange and exotic.
