Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Sweet bike, Neil! Nice grin too! Show it more often (The Grin or Roark, either one!)

If a new bike won't put a grin on your face, nothing will.

Nice bike, nice shirt and nice beanie.

Must be an Ayn Rand fan if the bicycle has been named Roark!

That's the first 05 7.5 I've seen. Nice Score on that one! I'm so glad that Trek added the Carbon Fork on the 7.5 series. You should see quite a bit of difference from the Navi to the FX. Just in weight alone there is a difference to be sure.

Good Luck with the new Bike!

Chris

Hmm.. maybe I'll give The Fountainhead another try... I couldn't finish it when I tried to read it when I was 19, but I think it might suit very well, now.

Nice bikes, nice smiles, and great job on the ride

Very nice bike, Historian. Hopefully I can get up your way some day for a ride and a chess game! We could do both at the same time, but one or the other may not go so well

Due to differences between myself and the moderator, I am unsubscribing from the Clydesdale/Athena forum. Friends, if any of course, can contact me through my blog or by private message on Bike Forums. I like to smile, and I haven't been able to do much of it here the past few weeks due to reasons that, if posted, will be deleted. Best wishes to all.

Nothing like a brand new ride to introduce pleasant excitement in one's life. I'll definitely take a look at your blog. Best wishes, enjoy the bike, and see you around!

Unsubscribing to a forum because of some differences? Ah.. come on now. We are all grown up adults and should be able to resolve such.
