    Fully Loaded Touring Bike Gallery, new website and links.

    The photo gallery for fully loaded touring bikes had so many hits in its first week that I decided to do something I'd never done before....build and publish a website.

    This will eventually put the gallery in web search results and it also gave me the change to list links for personal touring pages belonging to the bike owners. Have a look and bookmark the page. There are over 30 images there now and that should triple by the end of the year.

    I enjoyed looking at all the wonderful bikes!

    My LHT is too new to have a touring pic, but when I do get a pic of it loaded, I'll send it along.

    It's really neat to see all the different configurations people use for their touring rigs. I'll send you mine once I get out on the road this summer.

    Interesting to see quite a few rigs with flat bars and bar-ends instead of drops.

    Great pics!

    Very nice site.....
    I understand your guidlines regarding fully loaded rigs. Any chance of creating a sub-gallery for those who tour light, using rear panniers or trailers only?....

    Thanks for all the kind words! It's quite the collection of touring machinery isn't it? We're up to something like 37 photographs at this point.

    I've been spending some time here and there around the world (online) to ensure that all visitors have a chance of seeing something new to them. That said, I've only just begun! Just wait until I come back from Switzerland this summer!

    PS... Nice to see you on this forum Harv. You were on T@CO about 10 years ago weren't you? If so, Judy says hi. I talk to her on a regular basis.

    Cheers,

    Well done. Bravo!
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.
