Not sure if there's a existing topic, but lets put some faces to names/userids.

Besides?...I just took this first pic of myself with my bike today.

Yours truly taking a break at the old well at the top of the mountain. This pic is a few years old. Ol' Fuj, leaning against the well, just recently rolled over 20,000 miles. He was a bit younger, then. I had cataract surgery last year and don't need those stinking glasses any more. I can wear sunglasses like the cool kids do.

Hard to find a photo of me without wearing sunglasses. With glasses, helmet and jersey I could be anyone.
Just finished climbing a 15% grade and took my glasses off because I was sweating so much. Asked someone to take a photo to commemorate the climb - thus no sunglasses.

Just a hint: my profile pic is not me.

A pic during a break riding a 70mi that day. Little Traverse Bay in the backdrop with my favorite bike, a Cannondale Criterium Series....

As the old saying suggests. A video is worth a thousand pictures. June video taken while preparing for the summer tour of the Allegheny Passage.

No, it's not

When the house was built, I told them I need a 6' bump in front so I could turn my motorcycles around and back in. They said it wouldn't look right, I said you won't be living here!

This is an old photo when the house was done, it is steep! It's a real pain to shovel!

Just about the only bike related photo I could find, taken last year on a XC ride in the Forest of Dean.

Serious face as I was concentrating to avoid falling over.
