Allright--Who is it? ? ?

Trying to post a Video and I am having trouble finding the original but that is another story=

But while trying to get it--I found a mention of "Club Tombay" attached to a clip.

Must be a 50+er as No-One else could possibly have come up with this name.

The video is of the one of my friends son. It was made by Metric Man and the boy is 13 or 14 and a converted MTB rider. The Rider in the Army Jersey is yours truely. It ws last Memorial Day I believe, Huntington Beach, CA. We will not say what he might have been looking at in case his mother reads these posts.

Notice i didn't mention his name or his fathers name? Now if he can just avoid seeing it himself. However he did take the fall, in front of two club members and was photographed. Looks like a member to me.

But he didn't have a couple of those California babes you hear about come dashing up to see if he was okay so he didn't get the full Club Tombay experience.

Well they were there but Metric man had on a helmet cam and they were a bit too young for him to be looking at. we did tease him a bit about what might have made him fall.

Yep that was me! And I'm happily married so the "babes" were all observed out of the corner of my eye.
