I was recently in Eugene on a motorcycle trip. I've always wanted a Bike Friday. I walked to their location to see the bikes in person. Walter let me take one on a test ride on the bike path behind the shop. 10 miles later, I was hooked. I bought a Pocket Companion, with the provision that I could ride it while in Eugene and have them ship it home when I left. I don't yet have a great way to carry it on the motorcycle. I tore around the Eugene's excellent bike path system and averaged 20 miles a day. The day before I left, I dropped it at the shop. I drive a small car that my other bikes don't fit into, so I'm looking forward to taking this one on my adventures. I was amazed how fast and stable the little bike was. It was also nice that it fit nicely in my hostel room.

I picked up my Pocket Companion at Coventry bike shop in Portland after discussing my needs with Sandy at BF. Four days later I was riding down the Oregon coast with two friends on their Surly LHT's. Had I known it would rain for the first three days of our tour I would have gotten the fenders, but I had no problems whatsoever with the bike. I had panniers front and rear and it handled the load well. I had to walk up some of the steeper climbs as I'm not a strong rider, but the bike felt stable and was fun on the fast descents.I spent some time in Eugene and went to the BF factory where I was able to try out a few of the other bikes on the bike path behind the factory. At the end of the trip the mechanic at Coventry helped me pack the bike into my new TravelCase. There were no extra charges or unpleasant surprises when we checked in at NWA and the bike arrived back home in perfect shape. This experience has me thinking about where I want to go next with my bike. I feel like a whole new world has opened up for me.
