I'm a big fan of this thread. I'll have to (regrettably) keep you guys in suspense for a little while, until I can find my camera cable. I just moved into a new place and can't figure out which box it's in...

When I read postings - especially ones by the regular contributors - I always get an image in my mind what they look like. Sorta like when I read a book: I mentally picture the characters, you know?

Characters...now that describes quite a lot of us here on the Forums!

Anyhow, let's see you guys and gals post some pics of you with your bike(s)! Working on them, riding on them - or just standing there looking proud/happy/confused/goofy/whatever!

A little story behind the pics is always welcomed.

First I am a newbie.

I shoot pistols in NRA 2700 point competition, and I raodrace motorcycles in WERA & CCS.

If went to a shooting forum, and posted a picture of where I went clean (perfect score)in 25 yd rapid fire and showed a picture of me showing peeps the clean target and my 1911 is pointed at the people I am showing the target to, I would get replies, and rightfully so, that I gota pistol pointed at people. My response would be, the pistol ain't loaded?

Also, in WERA motorcycle roadracing, I post a picture of me lapping the track sans helmet, I would get replies of where is my lid? My response would be, that is a practice lap?

What kind of message do we send to others?

Where is it when the truth is taboo?

Picture me and my wife on our bikes. I am 69 years old, I guess that makes me a little cranky! :)

I just saw the thread for the first time, and didn't read any others, and I gave my honest comment!

Am I supposed to read the replies too. I just gave my reply to the OP.

You still want me to delete my post, it was just my HONEST OPINION?????

stringbreaker 07-11-10 10:16 AM

BBM you look like you could kick everyone A$$ on the road, glad we are on good terms. :)

No, we're glad to have you here. We just stay away from the helmet issue; it has a history of getting really out of hand, and I was one of the guilty parties, though I thought it was kind of funny.

Great pic, and welcome....Looks like a LeTour and I can see the top tube cable guides in front of that Brooks......

Thanks man :beer: Don't mean to be cranky, but at 69 years old, being cranky is natural!! :) No, the wife is on a Schwinn Traveler that I picked up at a thrift store for $25, I am on a 78/79 Raleigh Competiton that my son gave me some 30 years ago.

Not so great picture taken about a year ago at Cabrillo National Monument, San Diego. Bike is the 72 P-15 with modern Campy drivetrain except for the early Shimano Barcons.

Believe it or not, I (or rather my bike) was recognized out there once by a rider who had posted in C and V. That really surprised me!

Old ride, bought by me in '72. New ride, bought by someone else in '73.

I didn't think I needed a helmet for a posed photo. I should be mowing the lawn.

You'll have to click on the thumbnails. I know, that's asking a lot. :lol:

Looks like you did some cradle robbing there... :)

One of the greatest joys in my life is having a partner that likes to ride nearly as much as I do... and I did a little cradle robbing of my own.

Our age difference is only 9 years and most people take us for being much younger than we are and think healthy living and lots of physical activity has a lot to do with that.

You don't look a day over 45.

That made me laugh out loud.

Another one with me and my 15 year old daughter.

cehowardGS, welcome to the forum - we can always use another shooter around here. :) This won't mean much to most of you, but cehowardGS? My daughter (pictured) went Distinguished Expert with her rifle a day before she turned 10. She got her second Distinguished Expert in pistol a few months ago, just in time for dating.

She has a very, very good instructor and coach. :D
