Anyone know a guy with long grey hair that rides a green Waterford and is from Mass?

we were on the last day of our vacation when another cyclist pulled up
beside us. He had long hair and a beard, a Magellan GPS, a nice Waterford
with brifters. He had front panniers, but not rear.

Anyway, we have a nice conversation. He had a lot of miles to cover, and out slow
pace didn't cut it, so he took off after a while. Later I wondered if he was a BF member.

No, but I'm an aging longhair with streaks of gray.

Interestingly, today, while out for a ride before work, I happened upon an bearded gray longhair. I didn't catch the bike, but there was a Brooks saddle and a set of four bright yellow Ortleib panniers.

I had pannier envy.

Anyway, he was from somewhere on the coast of Oregon, heading for somewhere on the coast of New England. We had a nice ten-minute chat. Keep an eye out, he's coming your way!
