I just tire of the nuances of a chain when I could have a belt for commuting).
plenty of hills in the piedmont, where he is - I am just north of that lake near him.
in fact, he is probably riding on us1 and 64, exactly the built-up state highway I was thinking of. you can sing along at 75-80 on 64 all day if you want, and still get passed, at least until it devolves back into a windy state road. us1 is pretty similar until South Carolina.
I was trying not to just come right out and suggest a vstrom, but, well, vstrom.
