Mikey,

I "Fudged" a little. Although the weather in south Georgia is wonderful between October and April, this picture was made last Spring. We pay for it in July and August when the humidity

and gnats make life miserable.

It's pretty hot and humid in my area in July/August as well -- which is why I ride really, really early in the AM during these months.

I would be petrified to ride this on public roads. It's snow bird season down here in Florida. Those Yankee sun seekers still think they're in Joisey!!! YEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAWWWWWWWW

There's enough old incompetent drivers in Florida anyway, but I bet snowbird season is the worst part of the year.

Congrats on the birthday, Sculptor, even if I am late, as usual. You and Rudy are setting the pace around these parts, its good to see that we can keep going if we are willing to get up and get out.

Im not sending a picture, but picture an incredably handsome man that is well built, and looks 20 years younger than my age of 76.

Welcome to 50+, McTrebor, looking mighty fit and trim there, big guy. Glad to have you aboard the forum, many members in your neck of the woods. Pull up a saddle and stick around, we rarely take our selves seriously, here, at least most of us don't.

Bill

Good morning All,
Here I am with my son and grandson, 3 generation picture taken last August.
The second picture is yours truly with my 17 month granddaughter, who asked to be picked up and fell asleep almost instantly!

Best regards
