I freaking love my Brompton, I cant believe we’ve already been together for 8 months. She’s been on trains, planes, buses and a trolley, boats and planes that float, cars, ferries and even in a baby carrier.I will never forget my first day with mine, amazing these bikes are.
Sookie spent her first and last night as floating boarding house when I met two adorable young girls in desperate need of a bed. I spent the afternoon cleaning and getting her all ready and then moved aboard a friends boat next door for the night. I have to say hearing the giggling voices of this amazing mother daughter dou made me a bit jealous of them and thier beautiful home for the evening. It was good to have an arms distance view of what others see when they walk by Sookie.
When I moved back aboard Sookie now two friends richer in this world she was spotless and had fresh herbs hanging everythwere, it smells so good in here and I love the look . So backtracking, with a pile of things to do I sent the girls off to play, while they were out I signed them up for sailboat race to give me time to make Sookie perfect. As usual I was able to sneak in an amazing ride on Brompty, my legs are finally in full recovery mode and hopefully my lungs are soon to follow.
Dragging Brompty through 6 inches of horrible Hawaiin clay and a full load I cursed the weather, her small tires and every turn in the road that revealed yet another emty stretch and no relief in sight. Looking at her after a complete detail I could plop her on the shelf in any bike store and you would think she is new.
I did a massive amount of research and riding of all folding bikes and now well over a thousand miles into my second set of tires I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Brompton is the highest quality folding bike in the world. My map is stretched out in front of me, the only question is where shall we ride for the winter
