Wow, is it fun? How long did it take? I get the impression it's not too technical but has a ton of climbing.

No, that's a piece of welding rod to prop the bike for the picture, meant to clone the rod out of the shot.

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin' high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
"We'll meet on edges, soon," said I
Proud 'neath heated brow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I'm younger than that now.

Hey, Bill, you know the Byrds did Dylan songs, right?

BTW Tom, nice pics. Love your use of the "magic light"--that special window after sunrise or before sunset.

Just these two for now:

I would have more, but I had to sell the others to make room for the new ones.
