    Looks Fun and Scary all Together

    Josh brought this photograph to my attention and I wanted to share, we are not doing a sidecar, but if we were, this would be the way to drive it. The expression on the passenger is what they call "priceless".

    Thanks,
    Shane

    Thanks,

    The sidecar rider is the "monkey"

    I couldn't name names but I'm sure the side hack rider "monkey" is female, very well known(in some circles) and is part of a very accomplished side hack team!

    Now you really have my interest peaked, come on, spill the beans, who is the team and who is the young lady monkey? I am new to all this new terminology and just found out that the passenger is called a monkey.

    Thanks,

    Dane

    The thread deserves another photograph of Dane, I think it will help the hits to the thread for sure. Thanks again for the education.

    Sincerely,

    Girls

    Funny how the thread just gravitates to girls and bikes even when we are not trying.

    Have a great day,
    Thanks,

    Besides elegant, I think I'd add the word "courageous" to your blog.

    Dear Lew, "courageous" definately applies to Dane. Thanks everyone for continuing to following all the antics.

    The Vintagent

    I have asked Paul the creative writer of "The Vintagent" www.thevintagent.blogspot.com to look into maybe doing a little write-up on Dane, as only he can do. I am sure most of you guys know about this website, but for those who are not a member of this blog, you are missing something truly special. The articles, the photos and the writing are extraordinary, check it out.

    Thanks,
    Shane

    Boy, there's an understatement! What a collection of images.

    The new go-to for me!
