Your Best Pic from Memorial Day weekend!

Haven't been around the Foo in a while. Which sucks, but what can ya do? Just popped in to say hi and "Man, did I ride my ass off this weekend!" Seriously, I have no ass left. And my legs are crazy sore today.

I've really been enjoying Springtime in the Rockies and lots of riding (road & mountain). It is so amazingly beautiful right now, words simply can't do it justice. So below is my favorite pic from the weekend--- Taken at Walker Ranch, just west of Boulder, Colorado. The peaks in the background are part of the Continental Divide.

Post your fav pic from the weekend. Surely you got out for some riding, yes???

I have like 5, but I picked 2. Riding in Pacifica, Ca up Montara mountain. One is me looking towards the ocean, the other is facing south towards HFB. Such a beautiful day.



If you think that's me with a helmet on, you are seeing things.

Probably this. It was a warm 80 degrees out, but with snow! Elevation is wonderful.



....oh why not

I saw a bunch of cool helicopters and planes while I was playing golf at my local airbase, but I didn't get any pics.

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

Mine is my wife's trike.

I figured out how to adapt a standard rear rack to a delta trike for touring gear!

I WISH I'd had my camera for the ride around Lake James on Saturday, so you'll have to settle for the pix from Monday's ride near the old mill instead.

I went riding in the mornings and wine tasting in the afternoons. This is the Iris Hill Winery 16 miles from Eugene, they make a wine worthy of the setting in the Coast Range:


In the tasting room, these ladies had interesting back art.


Lovely place to have a bottle of wine and enjoy the day

do they cause much damage, or just keep you up all night with their racket?

I don't think they are interested in eating, I think they are in the mood for love, on a massive scale
