    I'm like Bubba; it's more "bitback" than "wayback"...

    My first (and last) charity "rally". It was a ride for a place called "Mom's House" (for pregnant girls trying to go to college) in Toledo. September '05; 3 months after I started riding. I'm doing my rather tough "Squint because I'm looking into the sun".

    I met my first other BMW rider there, though (Doug, who posted in this thread earlier, actually).

    From the wayback machine...
    1978, Ocean City, MD. My first "long" trip. I think I did 180 miles that day. I think I'd owned the bike for about a week. Still going strong - the bike at least.

    This one is from 1975. Just way back!

    Nicasio, California. It's a wonderful 10 mile ride up Lucas Valley Road from my house.

    It's one of my favorite locations for bike photos.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    That's also in Nicasio, about a half mile from the church.

    Nicasio's about 45 minutes outside San Francisco, in Marin County. Most of the masses don't make it out of the 101 corridor, which leaves rural riding to the rest of us. All the photos I've posted were taken within 20 minutes of our home.

    My R1100RT

    Here is photo of the 2000 R110RT the next day after unloading it off the trailer.
    My wife and I traveled to SC to buy it. We trailored it back to Illinois on Sunday.

    During the trip back we had a flat on the trailer in Kentucky south of Paduca. A Kentucky highway patrol service truck pulled up behind us and asked if we needed any help. He removed both our trailer wheels and took me to Walmart, where we replaced them for about $160.00. The service provided by the State of Kentucky was free. We were astonished and very greatful to Kentucky for the hospitality.

    Sunbeam pointing the way through a arboreal arch over the road. My ole PD patiently waiting.


    When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

    I just thought I'd bring this one back for a moment.

    Such a great shot! Not only of the subject, but of what makes up the "sport".
