Greetings from the Pacific Northwest

Hello All,

I was just referred to your fine site, by Kpug505. Looking forward to gleaning some information from everyone here, and providing any where I can.

Live in Seattle, and with gas prices topping $3.50 gallon this week for regular, it's time to put two wheels on the road more often than four.

Hope to see everyone on the road!

You know Kelly? Do you know stringbreaker as well? Are you going to join our merry crew in Classic & Vintage?

Say hi in the regional forums, too!

Howdy! I can't believe East Hill didn't demand pics of your rides! You should post them up in the appropriate forums.......

I like to encourage everyone to post two or three times so they get that "Newbie" thing away from their name.

So, have you got any photos?

I do have some photos! I'll try to get them up tonight. I've know Kelly for almost 24 hours now ... ;-)
We seem to have a similar appreciation for beautiful bikes.

Good! We are always happy to have another member locally. Where do you normally ride, by the way?
