I got a ride in on the Road King Special today – doing errands. Having a bike like this makes even the most mundane of chores a pleasure.
I went to the sound shop to pick up a microphone doohickie and collected some groceries on the way home.
The interesting take-away however was how surprisingly nimble the bike is around town.
On one roundabout enroute, over the crest of a hill, I found myself on the same line as a sunken manhole cover, but with a quick flick of the bars and a little weight transfer I skirted it easily … pleasurably.
“So chuckable” I thought to myself. Side-to-side manoeuvres entering and exiting roundabouts and intersections are equally enjoyable. It’s just a pleasure to be aboard. The bars work well for (mini) apes too.
Having the big panniers to carry the proceeds of said commerce are also a big plus.
I’m currently working on tomorrow’s excuse to ride it again.
I may have to go to Noosa to get bread.
