I'm on my first bike ownership for a year and went a month without it. Thinking I need a second, I missed it so much. Can't imagine going more than a few months without. hope you get something worked out. :-)

Yeah, I know. I rode starting around age 12 thru college. Then for a variety of reasons never got a bike, then got married to a lady who was not supportive of the idea. Then we had kids, and lived in North Africa and such. Just this year, after a 35 year gap: got back into riding and I am having a ball. I am addicted to riding, and the stress relief is immense. I will ride until I die.

If I am lucky I may get my old one back from auction.

I have been without a bike twice for more than a week. It sucks. Can't imagine being without one for as long as some of you.
