introduction

I am a retro biker originally from PA but living in Minnesota since 1970 and mostly with British steel. I have about 15 bikes but am not a collector, I ride them, just shy of 420,000 miles in 45 years including most places in the USA and Europe (& NZ). One of my Holdsworths has gone 105,000 miles. I have also written books on the AC's Northern tier trail across the US and biking the Canadian Rockies. I would like to locate a Viking Severn Valley like I had as a youth, in 22 to 23 in size. My main interest is touring and did Route 66 with a 66-year old friend spring of 2003. Next year? Alaska I hope.

Hello and welcome Thomas.....

That is one terrific set of cycling statistics you have to show Thomas.
Hope you stay around as you must have quite an input to inform us with.

Dood... you got 15 bikes! You're collecting if I've ever seen someone collect!



We hope to see a lot of you in the Touring section especially! It sounds like you've done quite a bit of travel.

Must... see... pics... (when you get the chance).

Thomas..sounds lie you have a lot of traveling...I'm very jealous that you got to go to New Zealand..that has been near the top of my dream vacations for many years now...I have a few friends down there to stay with but haven't been able to afford the airfare as yet.

Yea...would love to see pictures...
