I cut across from N-D-de la Salette toward Poltimore many times. Windy roads. This is my first 50/50 bike(sort of) since I was 15. Started in the trails but progressed to street as soon as possible. Now I'm fed up with straight lines and stupid car drivers. It's like discovering a whole new world. I gave up riding 2-3 years ago because of boredom and lack of adventure. Now the motivation has come back stronger than ever. Check this out. Last May in front of my house I just got this bike on the road at the end of June. 22 July, I went for a short run to test the windscreen. I wasn't 5 minutes from my home when a car turned in front of me. I must be more careful. ATGATT is a must. I broke my right knee. Could have been worse. Got lucky. I will be paying much more attention to other drivers from now on, until I hit the trails. Life happens.
