That was my 1st real bike that I built in H.S. 7 years earlier. It had gone through one upgrade; ie. Campy wheels, new crankset, Cinelli bars. I still have the bike today.
Third pic is from '91 of my VFR750F. Motorcycles took me away from bicycles for a while. Seems a lot of us here are also avid motorcyclists.
Fourth pic was taken in Montreal Canada on their Thanksgiving weekend, 2007.
I took my stepson on a ride around the F1 circuit which is open to the public. Then over to Old Montreal. Pretty impressive ride for a 12 y.o. on a Supercycle gas pipe MTB. I was riding an old Bianchi Nyala that I pieced together.
Lastly, this is the most recent 'bike related' pic taken this Spring. After my stepson successfully stripped and repainted his MTB. He appears to have our affliction for bikes.

Next time I'm down to MTL for F1, I am brining my C&V to ride the track. That is an INCREDIBLE IDEA! The track is awesome and is the best part of Canada in my opinion.

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.

Is she also rocking Campy? Good thinking, attract the right type of guys!

I'm considering going that route, maybe when my son goes back to college in the fall (one less car in the driveway).
