Happy Foot…

10102008 083 In the midst of all the reconstruction yesterday- Jan took the trike to Charles for a new front tire- We had a new tire put on earlier this year- in February as a matter of fact. And we were both quite surprised at how bald it had become in less than 9 months. But… after looking at our paperwork we realized in that short amount of time we have been approximately 17,000 miles- Can you imagine 17,000 miles on a trike in less than 9 months- awesome huh? We went 6,739 miles on our cross country trip- leaving over 10,000 miles on our smaller trips and local rides. 17,000 miles doesn’t seem like a lot for the life of a tire, but a trike creates a lot of wear on that front tire- you can’t lean into the turns, so all the wear is in one spot… anyway- We now have a safe ride…
