Hi All,
Lurking for a few months, mainly to gather info and opinions. Hoping to contribute now. Have a gray 09, since 4th Jul weekend, with 5500ish miles on her. ECU flash, sonic springs, Penske 8900 shock plus some cosmetic/comfort bits and bobs. Riding for 30+ years. Not real savvy with contemporary "social media" (whatever the heck that is?) so posting may be....clumsy.

Temp above 40 Saturday afternoon. Anyone game?

Welcome aboard.

Above 40?
It will be in the 50's here, but not good enough for me. I'm weak.

Live a bit west of Atterbury. Spent a lot of time on those roads you mentioned abe57, though don't get down to West Baden that often. I suspect we've passed before. I also like the area between Madison and Rising Sun. Occasionally down to Tell City/ Corydon area if an extra day off shows up. Sunday usually my only riding day. Mid shift worker; need Saturday to adjust to normal sleep. I have some heated clothing to cheat on those cold days.

Well, time to turn in. Cheers!

Welcome Barchetta and I think your social media skills are more than acceptable. Ride on!

Cool! Why are using Bachetta as your moniker? I own 2 Bachetta recumbents so I suspect we something in common.

EdVR, Barchetta from the "Rush" song. Perfectly describes the impact a Sunday morning ride has on me. You know, a little of that dancing on a knifes edge. Well, when I was younger anyway.
Read briefly about a real Barchetta, Ferrari of some sort isn't it? Waaaay out of my disposable income range. If that's what you've got, good for you. Enjoy!

I lived in Brownsburg for few years before I move to Florida. Never had the chance to enjoy bike riding while living there.

Oh - sorry. I missed the "R". I don't have a Ferrari, just a bicycle.
