    Thanks for the update Yan.

    Wow!! That's a scary looking break. Apparently you're still in one piece.
    Just gives me more things to think about, the 8H I ride is nearing that many miles.

    I like it.

    Drafting?

    Sorry if this has been posted before.
    I found it on a blog the other day, no story with it.
    It would be nice to have a vintage photo forum.
    I wonder if any records were broken?
