My son, who will also ride this bike at times, made one comment today. (I will also mention this in the bike stand thread). He said, "Dad, more bikes fall on their sides in the garage or driveway, than on the road." Smart boy. Of course, he's 38 years old, and has been riding for 10-15 years too.Better than nothing at all, being black it will help to blend in and sort of be stealthy, still obviously noticeable to anyone.
