Recumbent Road Tandem bike
Description:  After 25 years we decided our marriage was strong enough to attempt a tandem - so we got a silver one.

The picture is me giving my mother a quick ride at their house in Michigan. The "TR" version breaks apart for easy transport and is well worth the extra cost.

I usually ride captain so it's my job to track mileage on the front tire. :)

Retired 11/08, RIP.
