I have several bikes but the one I ride most by far is my Ď84 Miyata 1000. Until recently, I hadnít been riding for several years but Iím back in the saddle and I have a few short tours planned. The bike is stock except that I changed the freewheel to 14-34 (period NOS and still 5-speed) and I swapped out the chainrings for 48-38-24 (also NOS). This was all in deference to my aging body.

I currently also have a set of Kirtland panniers and a handlebar bag, all of which I bought new in about 1980. But I will probably retire these in favor of some Frost River bags.
