    I have these:





    The blue one is my first adult bike, bought in high school with grocery-bagging money, 14 years old and every single part has been replaced now. The red one is new -- and all-wheel drive.

    Thanks fyrstomer,

    The Townie is a great ride, very responsive and I love the upright position. Being 55 a Boardwalk bike suites me fine. If you visit the bicycle thread, you will see the Townie I fell in love with. I think it's on the last page of the thread. It's the white customized unit. I B diggin it the most!!

    Still having your first Big Boy Bike after 14 years is way cool! If I was you, I'd never let it go. Just replace/upgrade what you need to. I don't understand how your red bike is all-wheel drive, please provide better pictures, and more information.

    Hope you have a great weekend,

    ~ Chance

    Actually, I more often find myself uttering the phrase "why didn't I get THAT instead..???"

    Is that a real thing, AWD?

    Edit: I have found that it is. Neato.

    Now that I think of it, I rarely use my PC, except for major apps, like Maya and Photoshop. I use the iPad most of all.

    When I first got it, I didn't think I'd ever have a need for an oversized iPhone. It just didn't seem to fill any need. Now, it's my most used thing I have - more than my phone or tv. It simplifies almost everything work/play oriented.

    That's the one. They were in-production from 2001 to 2011. I ordered one of the last frames in late 2011, and built it using proceeds from the sale of my Cool Fall Tri-V. (when I realized I could pay for ALL the parts using money from selling the Tri-V, I gained a whole new appreciation for just how inflated my expectations of prices had become since I became a full-on flashaholic.)

    I recently saw the last production model at auction on eBay for a ridiculous $20,000. Now the company is focused on building AWD motorcycles for the US Army. Man, I'm glad I got that while I still could. Should be fun in the snow this winter.

    Default What Are Your Best Recent Purchases? That Was Worth Every Penny

    What are some of the best things you have bought the last few weeks, months, or years that still pay off TODAY.

    I'm talking about things that have continued to be useful as ever or things that are just extremely fun even through time.

    for me

    Wolverine DuraShocks boots.....they have been the best work boots I have ever had super comfy and tough!

    1995 GEO Metro. Purchased for $350 in 2005. Spent maybe $600 on maintenance (all the basic stuff) over the years. Had 50K miles when I got it, now over 120K and still going strong. The car is ugly but it gets me to work. And the truth is, I've been waiting for the car to die on me so I can get a new one but she wont give in, lol. I dont think I'll ever find a deal like that again.

    Ridgid 36'' Professional Aluminum Landscape Rake. I wanted one for years but wouldn't spend the money. $45 for a rake? No way! Received some birthday money from the inlaws and off to Home Depot I went. I've never regretted it.

    18'' Paint Roller Tray & Roller Handel. I don't use them that often, but when I do......worth every penny.

    Refurbished iPad 2, purchased from Apple. It came with a new back cover, and factory warranty. Instant FanBoy.

    Malkoff MD2 with high/low switch sporting a Nichia 219. I love the versatility and tint.

    Every Japanese Maple I've ever bought. 23 They're my only weakness.......besides beer.

    My house, built in the 1950s, constructed like a tank.

    The additional investment for thermal insulation of the complete house, new heating system, new power and water installation, new roof, facade and windows and completely reengineering the rest of the house as well.

    My little workshop with interior, tools and machinery.

    My Sinn and Guinand watches.

    Definitely! Especially the early run Ws and the Neutrals that are no longer available!
