Thanks for the tip on the story hy_syde. It's about time some positive articles get put out by the press. I wrote a pretty lengthy "Thank You" to Elizabeth too.

I just wrote her a thank you e-mail as well. This is the kind of press that we need and deserve. Maybe she'll be a starting point for others to give us a chance rather than always writing about the negatives.

BTW: anyone know the area code for Raleigh, NC? I'd like to give her a call and thank her personally, but she didn't list her area code there...

Liked the story and all, but I was a bit dismayed by the piccy of someone on a bike with no leathers or anything. Okay, they had a helmet on (I think), but still a short sleeved shirt is nothing to riding in!

Nice to get some good press though.
Cheers for the link!
