Well be careful not to get a hernia--they're heavy

And welcome.

"Western suburbs of Chicago". McHenry county was my pre-pubescent stomping ground. Someone recently swore to me that they haven't yet completely paved over northern IL, but I didn't believe him...

I'm sure I sent 1,956,888 copies of the book of newb at the local book store. You should seek it out and read the passages on the importance of rule #1 and all the others to. Rule 1 states that all newbs that pick up Raiders shall tell the forumees where they ride and what is their favorite dinosaur.

Welcome to jurasic park, er forum. Ride safe and keep the shiny side up

Oh yeah forgot, I work on Harvards does that count?

I'm all lined up to pick the nebulous purple Raider S today. Anyone strongly object to that? I was really leaning toward the raven but the color on the purple one seems to work well with that bike.

When you go to Roget's Thesaurus and look up "Raven" it says; "See also "coal dust".

If you couldn't get it in Black Cherry, then Purple will do...sorta...

Enjoy it
