    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...

    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.

    Thanks!

    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 ****** pointed at people. My response would be, the ****** 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!

    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 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.

    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.

    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 ***** a day before she turned 10. She got her second Distinguished Expert in ****** a few months ago, just in time for dating.

    She has a very, very good instructor and coach.
