I had already some disappointing rides, turning down the idea of taking a new best friend home.
And than I saw her – perfect, black, perhaps a little bit too tall but still…
The first ride was promising. The movements were so smooth, soft, giving a exciting sensation of speed.
The negociations with her owner were disappointing. He refused to negotiate and to lower the price. Doubt was gaining my mind until I took a second ride and then I knew – she was worth it.
I do not know why my new, black, wonderful bicycle seems to be a “she” to me. But I certainly gonna like it.
