My bag is a NOS Kirtland h-bar bag. The only attachment points are the clips on the rear of the bag which clip into the hanger, and the pockets that the hanger arms slip into. It provides a very secure hold with no need for stablizer straps. The plastic eyelets on either side are for a shoulder strap (which I keep in the bag) for use off the bike. It's a nice clever design IMO

Great pics Bryce. that bike is even better looking moving than sitting still. Didn't knew AZ did longsleeve jersey's though, but then again, my view of the US is based on ride pics of members here, 9gag, HBO shows and clips on facebook of republican morons saying dumb things on record which make us libral Euroboys laugh.

That looks like Shepherdstown WV. Near my stomping grounds. Great road riding in that area and the canal is not bad either. There is a great little pub in town called the Blue Moon in case you are thirsty the next time. Thanks for passing through!

Thanks, man! I'd say that your view of the US is about spot on then.
That was the only time that I have worn winter gear, I was definitely grateful for DD to lend it to me for the day. I think it was about 40F or 50F during the ride. I'm sure you think that type of weather is just peachy though


And it is worth noting, ****** kicks 9gag's ***.

This past fall, all of my cousins and their families had a really, really nice day at a pumpkin patch. The circumstances were sad, but I think we all had a day that could be called perfect. I won't post their pictures, but their were a TON of kids, the new generation is getting big!

My wife, daughter and myself. These steps were in the middle of a corn maze.

Hmmm...I rode my ST600 for the second time, but, the first time with the bag installed on a very windy day. I had a few things in the bag, a multi- tool, my pocket rocket pump, and some water bottles. I haven't installed my bottle cages yet after rebuilding it so everything went in the bag. I thought the bike rode differently from the day before! Maybe some extra wind and some extra weight!

Yep, right across the bridge from you. This Spring I'm doing the C&O again with my son's Boy Scout troop, so stopping at a pub would probably be frowned upon. You live in such a beautiful part of the country. Some day I'm gonna do the whole GAP/C&O. Pittsburgh to DC - 300 miles without cars!

Well I've none of me on my old bike, as I only ride that 'Billy no mates'. So here's one of me racing in the mid 70's

Me up front on my old Reg Barnett, wheels were given to me by Falcon pro Nigel Dean.
And here's my only old road bike.

Still racing in the over 50s and now I'm the chairman of our club!
And here's a blurry picture of me just about to start this summer just gone.

Awesome Chilipapa - that's inspirational. I've never lived where there was a lot of racing so have to create it in my own mind while training.

Oh yeah, me too. Especially since I had a ticket and they made the application procedure for this year a random one.

Yes, the lottery style entry for 2013 is a real bummer. If I wait 4 years I can get in on the "over 60" clause. That is if they don't change the rules again!

+1.
Great photos, Oldairhead. That event is one of my "bucket list" rides, now made harder to get into with the lottery.
