In my enthusiasm, I didn't read everything before posting to another area. I work for a local police department as a 911 operator and dispatcher. I had a call from a cat who wanted to know what the locals would think about him riding. I had no idea what he was talking about, so explained a short bit to me. Where have I been, that this idea has escaped me? I live 8 miles from work, and the first mile of is rather dangerous to pedal, but after that, it's a straight across the city into the next one. I used to ride it everyday until a scary experience with the side of a Ford F550. There's quite a bit that I don't know, how to get these disparate parts to work together, and questions I have. Looks as though I've got some reading...
