I appreciate the comments. I'm sure she'll be back out there. Changed oil and filter today on the Sherpa so we can all ride this weekend. Doubt that we'll do a lot of miles before.
We saw the airhawk at a bike shop and it looked interesting. She was worried about the extra height with that. Might not be a problem though, and we'll revisit it.
Agree on the underwear. I don't wear padded, or atleast not yet, but I use compression shorts on any ride that could go more than an hour. We'll follow up on that as well.
Hope everyone is getting the riding weather we're having in SW Missouri :)
