Thank you Dale!

While each category (Touring and Track bikes) is VERY different; they both are 'smaller' categorys that each have many vocal spokepersons!

And while I have several 'track' bikes, it will be a bit of a challenge to decide which I will bring/ride. hopefully one still in the pipeline!
