Also, Katie and I are going to Japan on the 3rd, wife does not have vacation time to join us. After we get back how about meeting at the PC for lunch?
I used to take my niece on rides. We'd go to Dallas, hit up the Galleria, and I'd get her some Pecans, Cherries, & Cream ice cream at Baskin-Robbins. Every time on the way home she'd zonk out and I'd feel this thump-thump-thump - it was her helmet bumping between my shoulder blades.

She's all grown up now - I can't swing her around the front yard by the ankles any longer, but I'll always remember those rides.

I'll have to get her to pose in the midde of the road with a helmet.

You still think you might make it up to Dawson Yukon for D2D this year?

And what the heck, you gettin shy on us? See ya, Mark H.
REI does have a good deal on the GoPro at 20% off. I know the GoPro at Cycle Gear has a handlebar mount system. I am not sure that the REI GoPro has the handlebar mount, I know they come with different mounting set-ups.

Her helmet was thumping on the back of mine but I did not think much of it until she almost fell off. I got a sidecar rig so she will be riding in it.

Awesome a How To. I'll have to keep an eye out in my local riding area for TDP or TsDP (The Squeaky Darth Peach) impersonators. Of course someday (after 4/15) when I actually get my web site running, I'll post some of my own. I wonder if anyone has a road shot from the entrance to the Queens-Midtown Tunnel..... J/K probably get arrested around here for something like that. hmm, maybe Times Square would be better....

Another jerked awake in the middle of a long sweeping turn - almost dumped the bike.

My niece is begging me to give her a ride... I have such a hard time telling her no... I can't bare anything happening to her on my watch (or, ever!). There isn't anywhere near enough protection in my eyes for her to ride! (yeah, I see her as my own daughter).

They both love my bikes, but it's my niece who's begging me to give her a ride.
