Jane knows that me checking out lovely young women (of which there were several on this weekend's "3 Speed Tour of Lake Pepin") won't lead to anything.

OTOH Me checking out lovely old bikes (of which there were several on this weekends "3 Speed Tour of Lake Pepin") can lead to even less space in our small house and more time spent tinkering. Which means less time for riding.

I appreciate bikes with a patina attesting to many miles and women who age gracefully. Restorations and Botox, not so much.
