Smiling Tourers—a photo thread

Here's to you, Ten Wheels.

We've all seen the "loaded bikes" thread. No faces to go with 'em. Feel free to post a pic of you and your ride. C'mon Ten Wheels.

Hey Ten Wheels, you're absolutely right. That shot of you and Deann is way cool. Nice bike(s) too. I'd keep an eye on your mechanic.

How can you not smile after climbing this little hill. It took a little over three and half hours for me. You start by the lake and climb three thousand feet
