I was referring to the Messerschmitt, which holds a quite close resemblance to a Mochet, or the likes, thus spawning my eternal desire for a velocar.

No daily pictures to show off, but I was ran off the road by a LBS mechanic, driving a motor-vehicle. Nice.

I'm not exactly sure what pp is? But it is just the way the photo turned out, no editing. I do wear a helmet, on occasion, but that's for another thread

Oh, ah, yeah, that thing is cool, for a car.

My aunt used to drive a BMW Isetta. I remember playing in it when I was like five years old. Strange little car!

I tagged along with my LBS owner to collect a vintage Trek 950. I ended up with a Frankenbuilt Gazelle. We ran into slow moving traffic (<10mph) and decided to make a U-turn and follow some local roads. Here's a shot from the window. That's a pretty typical south Kentucky scene.

i guess the color of the sky is from the tint on the top of your '78 Plymouth Volare windshield right? Anyway, it worked out, nice pic!

Yes, he is a bit... different, but in a good way, at least in my opinion. Not a bone of pretense in his body. Not a leach, it's part of the collection of scabs; it goes with the other ones on his leg.

The first time he showed up to ride with us, he was riding an ancient Schwinn with badly out-of-true rims and a playing card clipped to his fork that made noise in the spokes. He shows up with all kinds of bikes; yesterday he showed up on this:



A gorgeous 3-speed path racer, some brand I've never heard of before.

This is the rest of the cyclists gathering for yesterday's ride. We had about 4 dozen riders for the pub crawl again.



The orange Schwinn near the front left of the pic is mine.

Rains over?

Rainbows are always "doubles" it's just the way it works


(sounds of crickets and a bullfrog)

Just a nice spot to rest 1/2 through the ride

Just a bad pic of a couple bikes I've yet to post proper pictures of. My, new to me, Motobecane Jubilee Sport and my GF's Apollo SS Mixte outside the coffee shop.

Just got back from three days camping - sorry no bikes in the pics. My wife said if the kid's couldn't take theirs I couldn't take mine. The Scott mtb was disappointed also.



Teanaway River:



A treat for the kids - wild huckleberries:



Everything was cool until yesterday afternoon when our friend slipped coming up the bank from the river and dislocated his kneecap. He landed on larger rocks and in a tree. Took 2.5 hrs to get him into the back of an ambulance. I was fortunate enough to locate a forest service employee who had a radio and could alert the rescue squad. Other than that it was a 16 mile drive out for cell service.



Up the first steep bank from the river - that's our priest at the rear of the board. He had great timing to be that extra person to help carry.



The large hill was quite steep - with a patient at 230 lbs it took all six of us to get him up to the ambulance.

Brisco and I went for a DoggyRide/Jeunet ride this afternoon. He finally likes his trailer, after being rolled a couple of times and chewing it to pieces once. Good dog.
