Since I've somehow managed to avoid posting in this thread over the last five years, it looks like I have some catching up to do. So here goes!

Here's a recent one of my daughter Emmie and I about to enter Longhorn Caverns


My lovely wife Nicole with Emmie at the MotoGP race.


Sometime before the baby was born.


Where I can usually be found.


The creature in its natural habitat.


And lastly, Emmie having some difficulty reaching the forward controls on my Guzzi.

Nice photos, Drewteague, thanks for sharing.

Love your shop; it looks a lot like mine (not)...

Your fam looks like they're doing fine - lucky man.

Oh, almost forgot -- I think Corbin makes a Guzzi seat that places the rider a few inches forward from stock, so you might try that...

Love the shop! I'd love to have a space that large to work/play.

Emmie's got good balance ... Especially with the carefully placed hand of mom or dad Great photo!

It has been a few years since posting one.

Here is one from the VCdM Rally in Tuscany last year.

Me and Sarah on a ride in a beautiful place.

You can see the joy.

Nice pic Bill; it was indeed a fantastic adventure and the weather was certainly better than 2010. I'm glad I managed to find this thread in the bowels of MV and resurrect it; I've reread it too. It was binned a few years ago due to spamming, but Jess has now sorted that particular (misappropriation of the @ token) bug

I Can't Believe I Read the Wholllle Thing...
...partly because I couldn't recall if I'd put my mug someplace along it, but mostly because I was curious about ev'rybody else on this thing, so from the beginning I thusly began. Totally worth it, too - a stretch-collage of an online community and its shifts and changes, even amongst those who've stuck around throughout.

Me, I'm seriously a semi-newcomer by comparison. And, since it appears I didn't make myself known on this thread, I'll start right here:

He was an It guy too, but now he does spend a lot of time in an RV. Hmm

Geez folks, I know I'm not pretty, but to shut down the thread?

I guess I'd better add a little beauty and see if we can revive it.

Here's my wife and me in Chinon, France.
