so i did meet the bike at my parents in Michigan. i did a few rides of about 50 miles or so to see how i liked it. it was really nice but didn't end up riding back here to Chicago. i didn't have a rack and panniers on it so i would have to have gone with a backpack (riding with that on my back for two days would suck) or just go with nothing and i thought that would make for a pretty crappy ride. i ended up shipping it back here ups and it made it in one peace so that's good. im working on getting some racks and panniers to review and a lot of other touring stuff to help people out.
