Yeah, I know today's the first day I've really had a chance to take you out for a ride since you came home from the shop a few weeks ago. Let me tell you, I am impressed with how you ride now. It's like you're a whole new bike. I can't remember the last time your engine purred like it does now. I promise to do a better job of keeping up with your regular service requirements from now on.
I know the twenty miles I put on you this evening isn't nearly as many miles as you wanted to go, but I needed to get home. Maybe I'll have time to take you out for a real ride this weekend.
