Mine is as follows:

Becky and I heading from El Paso to Las Vegas. On I-40 just east of Flagstaff. I took out the camera to shoot a pic of the snow capped San Francisco Mts. I then turned the camera around and took a quick pic of us scoot'n westward at 80 mph. A true action shot!!!

Self-explanatory. Autobahn. Or maybe a lonely Welsh motorway. I forget which. :D

Mine is as follows:
The boss said I remind her of a moose; Affable, interesting, very large, funny in appearance and manner and definitely not someone you want to "piss off".

truth be told i am less interested in the moose than i am in the K1200R shown in your sig line. what's HER story? a hot babe on a beemer in the middle of a desert next to a winnebego. is this some sort of post-apocalyptic fantasy?

Photo OP

My wife and I were on our FIRST real road trip (966 miles, puny by some standards) and on Friday, my 66th birthday, we were on a lonely road between Raton and Taos trying to get some photos in motion, etc. I stopped to let some traffic pass (which had been non-existant BEFORE we tried to take the pictures) and while stopped, Cynthia snapped this one of me. Not really very exciting, but a good shot of our trike.:bmw:

Cockpit

Travelling across NE Colorado, picture of the cockpit when the bike was naked.

Basically I was bored, shot the pic, liked it.

BMW came out with a short movie called "Respect" to promote the K1200R. It was a nasty movie and would be rated at least "R" :eek: (bear in mind that this was an authorized BMW promo :eek: ) At any rate, the girl was in the movie and this image is a "wall paper" from it. Story is she's "done" with the "hero" in the trailer and going to sneak away on the K-R.

BMW pulled the promo when they got complaints about how racy it was:eek: and, more importantly, because they came to the conclussion that they had missed the target demographics :confused:

Deal's Gap, Hwy 129, Tennessee, borders Great Smokey Mountain National Park.

www.killboy.com took the photos along with hundreds each weekend, you go to the web site, check for your pic, send in the fee per pic, they send you CD disk.





Photo as the bottom, yes that is detour sign in the glare, taken in Southern Georgia while returning from Groveland Fla, RTM/Eat this year... I will downsize it or delete it in few days, was playing with the new feature on the NEW and IMPROVED site.

Link contains some sexual content

Not if you're member of the Northern California forum ;) Here you go, Gary, we'll keep it just among us two :rolleyes:

Here's the link and remember it's rated R :eek:

Seriously, it has some sexual content and is inappropriate for the work environment or for young children.

Avitar?

When I found this one, I just couldn't resist. Nothing deeper than I refuse to be "PC". There are absolutes in this world.. and I'm absolutely sickened by attempts to make me PC.

Guess I'm absolutely hopeless.

Photo taken in 1969. Baltimore Police Department Motorcycle Unit. 1968 HD with side shifter/foot clutch and those very inefficient drum brakes. Made by AMF! Those were the daze!

Liked this one - the part of the bike you hardly ever see.

Had the Suzuki (2nd one ) since 1994. It qualifies for antique plates this year (30 yrs old). Was working on it and told the wife I was going to the junk yard to get a used faring. She said why don't you just go out and buy a new bike. That was in April 04, got the LT in June. 'nuff said.

Avatar or mug shot?

On the front end it's only a simple headshot but now y'all have got me thinkin' and tellin' about it. Probably way too much disclosure but here's the gig.

The shot is taken off of a picture of the last visit I had with a cousin of mine who died too soon from cancer. I had made the trip back home on my 2000 Basalt to see him and we had a great reunion. His wife took a shot of the two of us doing a little posing at their cell phone shop. The stuff that looks like a background for a mugshot is shelving material. All in all a pretty clear image of what I is!:eek:
