Default New shoes

When I was a kid, my folks were pretty tight with cash.
Maybe once a year we got new shoes. It was very exciting! I felt I could jump a mile high in a new pair of sneakers!
It was so exciting, that we'd beg Mom to let us sleep in bed wearing our new shoes, and we could the first night.

I just got a Victory.

Teach a kid about bikes, and he'll never have money for bad habits.

Although I have had my XR since March of 2010, it's still a new bike to me. Whenever I park it, as I'm walking away, I HAVE TO turn and look back at it. I have done so many things that "make it mine" that, in my mind, its the only one out there like it. So bbgjoe, the new may never wear off. Make room in your bed.
