    What kind of bike are you looking at getting? How many miles have you ridden so far?

    Right now im using the bike as my way to get around w/o the g/f in tow putting on about 75 to 100 miles a day, i try to mix it up, some city, come highway, some backroads.

    Im actually becoming really comfortable, but still notice little mistakes i make and try to improve on them.

    What would be a reconmendation for 2nd bike? im think something late 90s
