New Chicken in Town

Howdy Folks,
With the youngest one now beyond my soccer coaching skills I decided that it was time to do a little fitness. I was riding centuries in the late 80's up to 1992 and decided to sign up for the MS150 (2007), without owning a bike nor riding for the past 15 years.

I have a 2007 Specialized Roubaix Expert Comp. The bike is a lot better than I am, man I'm outta shape

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

Hello chicken, I hope that user name does not refer to you being afraid to get out on the road with that fast, very fast, Roubaix .

The Texas regional forum is a very busy place...lot of good riding down there (if you can stand the heat, that is).

Welcome to BF!

No excuses ! There are cameras small enough to do the job nowadays. A few photos of the bikes on your website would be excellent .
