You're gonna love commuting on this bike! I'm in my 16th year of using my R90 as an everyday rider, and it suits the mission just fine. Yeah, there's some fiddling and fettling to be done, but that just enhances the experience, IMHO. There's something to be said for having an "appliance" bike for workaday stuff, but having a mechanical relationship with yours will be something special.
40 degrees and raining today, but the Airhead is still going to carry me to work.
