Absolutely, Colonel. And WNG can come along too and we'll see if I can catch a keeper size fish.
I think I could be talked into killing one, for a special occasion.

I agree, WNG. Besides, I pruned one in the front a while ago. Took me half a day and it looked like hell for two seasons.
I just whack back the path encroachers now and again and call it good. They're impressive plants.

Please explain the pic sixty fiver. I'm really curious in what you have going on. Is that something you donate your time and knowledge, or spare bike money?

I hate those, I have campy proton wheels and I swear they are 2 sizes smaller than my tires.

Was volunteering for Bikeology, a one day festival that is part of Bike Month here.

Decided to pay tribute to my favourite superhero this year... this was very well received.

Great pics! I fell in love with that black Porsche. The Morgan is really cool. The new Harley-powered one looks very close to the original.

Old Hercules road bike I picked up at a flea market in Frankfurt for about 15 euro. Rode it about 200k over the border into France when heavy rain forced me to continue by train. Unfortunately it was stolen a very short time later, before I could learn too much about it. Fantastic ride for cheap though.

That's quite the venue for a guy with an acoustic guitar.

Stopped into my LBS and saw this there. 50s Schwinn with an 80cc Chinese engine. Kid says he's put about $1,500 in it.

The copper gas tank was pretty slick. Those bars look pretty terrible, though.

I just posted my first Ebay auction in nearly two years a day or so ago; here's the item in question:

Seriously. I have two. I carry one on the Masi when I run clincher rims with those tires.
