what's on your computer desk top?

I have a photo taken this summer of my bike and a lot of others parked at the Deals Gap store in NC. Just wondering how many of us have MC photos or MC related photos on our desk top.

Re: what's on your computer desk top?

Both of these are memories of our recent tour of northern Spain and Portugal. One was taken over my shoulder on the road from Potes to Fuent De and the shot of the lizard was taken at Penha, near Guimaraes, Portugal. They grace the two computers I use regularly.

Re: what's on your computer desk top?

Are you sure that's on the Dragon? I've got the original and I believe that's after the Dragon after you cleared the Cherahola Skyway. I've been wrong before.

In July 2006 I did my first documented Iron Butt and I pulled over to the side of the road and snapped this picture.
