So I was just browsing craigslist, and I do on occasion, and came across this:
And the memories came flooding back.
That bike, a seafoam green murray ten speed, was my first road bike, way back in probably 1986. Bryan had a blue huffy with blue tires, and I had that Murray. And we'd ride around pretending our bikes were F-15s, and calling each other Maverick and Goose.
It's too bad my bike allocation has been filled. I could really use a crappy Murray that I'd never ride.
