    Cool Pre-Digital photo's only!!!

    Lets give this a try. No Digial need apply. Fire up that scanner and show some of your older bikes. I'll start off with a photo from April, 1976. Me sitting on my 1972 Suzuki GT-750cc, 2-cycle. What a great bike. Watercooled 3 years ahead of the first Goldwing. Wing-a-ding-ding. What was I thinking with that hair???

    Alas, I have some from the early to mid sixties, but they are stored in Colorado!

    Me, my first wife, and a 66 Shovel on our wedding day. I bought the Shovel off a Schriner the day before. No longer have the either, though I miss the Shovel.

    My buddy and I after a trip to Nova Scotia in August 1978. What would we have done without milk crates on the back of our bikes back then.

    Crowsnest Pass

    Taken in 1986 on Pat and Bob's trip thru Canada. Heading West thru Crowsnest Pass (that's a Crow on the pole above the GW).

    A few pics of my lovely wife scanned from slides of our 8,600 mile tour out west back in 1979. It's hard to believe that has been well over thirty years ago.

    That's me to the left on my 1973 GT-750 Suzuki, the water buffalo. Summer of 1977 I believe. In 1978 I would discover BMW's when I saw my first R-90-S, Daytona with red stripping. I could not afford itd at the time and instead purchased a R-80/7 with free bags and fairing for a wopping $3100.00

    At the Beartooth Rendezvous, some years ago. It was quite a chore getting the bike to this parking spot:



    Our happy little gang, in front of the cabin, at the Rendezvous. The guy behind my brother Hans (seated), Bob, co-prosecuted Arlo Looking Cloud and John Graham for the murder of Anna-Mae Pictou Aquash, which took place after the Wounded Knee standoff. He's a judge in South Dakota now:



    My brother calls this the Bob, Bob, Bob, and Bob shot.
