Does it make me any less of a rider if I ride a 10 year old bike when all my friends that have brand new bikes? I know the bike doesnt make the rider, but I feel like shit when my spoiled-ass friends get new bikes every year, when I'll have to save for years just to be able to afford one. Dont get me wrong, I love my bike, but I would give anything just to have the power and reliability of these newer bikes. Hopefully this application goes through and Ill be getting a new job soon, but Ill have to help my mom pay bills. So does it make me any less of a rider?
