    I've not ridden my upwrong in some 4 months, apart from a couple of short
    trips last week, and so I commuted in on it today. Well I was amazed, it's
    really only a little slower than the recumbent, though I must confess to
    being a whole lot more tired tonight. Definitely less comfortable though,
    all the usual complaints, my ass has lost all its toughness. I did enjoy
    the improved ability to traffic jam, and felt like I was for the first time
    overtaking all the other commuters fairly. I also noticed how much less
    respect the cars give me, I don't feel nearly as safe on the upright. All
    in all a very pleasant ride and I won't make the mistake of not taking out
    the upright for ages again, though the 'bent will still be no. 1 bike by a
    good margin.
