Welcome to 50. I hope you enjoyed the trip so far. Lots of folks don't make it to 50.

I really enjoyed your video. Having done a couple, I know how much time you put into editing and putting music and titles together. Where was it filmed?

You might want to do a spell check and a little editing. Spelling errors for me detract from the professionalism of this very nice product.

prefer
breathe
cruise
enjoy


Thanks for sharing and post lots.

Happy Birthday!

Now go dust off the bike and put some air in the tires, you old geezer.

I'd take them off tomorrow- or when the hangover clears and full vision comes back- Today is for celebrating.

Has Corben been informed about the forum's "junior auxiliary"?
