Yeah, we find the strangest places to park sometimes. Last week I parked Gina's butt in a sticker bush!..Well it was her fault. We were ahead of some friends, I pulled over to get a good shot. Tandem riders know stoker doesn't unclip. Well, I pulled the camera out and as I put my arm up infront of me to shoot, without turning around, she leaned over to the right to get out of the camera view.

Camera in one hand but I was able to grab the bars with the other and the opposite barend caught my belly (I'm bruised). I was able to catch her fall. Much better than falling hard but she ended up sitting in a sticker bush.

Me picking stickers out of her butt. Pic from a buddy's cell phone, trying to talk his wife into helping me for some kinky shots, dirty dawg!


BUTT she's fine! Up and at 'em racing the recumbents this weekend!

You need a camera and to move out her near the trail we ride. Summer is th best, of course I'm a cleavage guy. Hmm, or am I booty guy, both I guess! Well, either way, there are tons of pics to be taken in the summer. I dont cause my wife is with me most of the time but don't anyway. Not that they wouldn't be great pics, but gotta keep what I got so that when I do need to pick stickers from someone's butt, I got more than just my own to pick from!

I'd say I'd come a long way in the months between the two pics. (and learned to wear darker less form fitting clothes)
I meant it in the sense that we are both big-framed like football players. It wasn't a fat joke.

I don't have any action shots either, but I've been hovering around 200 pounds for a few years now... every now and then I'll dip under, and bounce back. I'm about 5'11" or so. This bike looks so small next to me...

OK...you're forgiven then...Just feeling sensitive since I have at least another week off the bike for recuperation.
I'm slowly going insane from the enforced inactivity.

One of my teammates loves to take pictures at cyclocross races. This is an excellent opportunity to get pictures of myself.

Most of the time, I just look like a fat guy in need of a shave who's about to die...



But with 5-8 laps per race, I usually get one or two chances to try and look pretty for the camera. Usually by getting somebody else with a crazier 'cross race face in the frame.

LOL. I've got some family and friends up that way... I don't actually watch football at all. But the bright orange stripes definitely help with visibility!

It was the Dalmac, The day before Labor day.
Great weather, little wind that day, and great group of riders and organizers.

Me on the Cannon Valley Trail on 8/30/09. My weight then was 212 lbs. The bike is the Nishiki Century, before I bought the Trek as my 200lbs reward.

BTW, I was in the Montana State University class of 79, so had to take a picture of the M and 79 milepost.
