Wait? What?

I missed Mandy's birthday? Great shots!

Now, to paraphoto the Peach's bridge photos, here's a couple of mine, taken today on Texas 19 just north of Riverside, Tx. This is the old bridge that crosses the Trinity River.

Thank you Peach!

Susan was having problems last night and I didn't get to share these with my girls last night.

I know Mandy will get a kick over them.

You guys are the greatest.

It's always fun meeting random ADV'ers in random places!
Speaking of random, when are you traveling through again?

Soon, very soon and I would enjoy having a chance to meet up with you. We will be headed S. from Portland the morning of th 25th and need to be in San Diego by about noon on the 27th. On the way S. I'll be caravaning with one other pickup as four of us ADVers head to the Mexican 1000. We'll be picking up the oother two in San Diego.

I'll see if I can get specifics as to when we will be hitting your area and PM you.

Easter

Another beautiful day out.
Feeling charged still from the ride the day before I decide I'm going to get out and put a few more miles
on.
I was so upset over my friend passing and didn't feel like riding at all for a bit.
But getting out sometimes is the best RX.

Today I had the pleasure of some company in the form of a Frenchman on a KTM....



















Such a cool bike..
almost as cool as the Triumph.


















Not 2 seconds after snapping that last shot, I get pooped on
Luckily it missed the fabric part.


















And since we're stopped, JL offers to to take a few pics....




















And I the same....

Darth Peach-ish..............


Though not strictly speaking; No helmet, No pavement, No line down the middle, but it made me think of you...

Fantastic photography and perspective on the world.

I'm only a third of the way through and this thread has already lowered my working day productivity to that of an infant

A bit of colour from sunny London for you

No. That was weeks ago and on the golden gate bridge and had thrown the camera on the dash of a car with long exposure thus the jagged light lines.

I agree it was a great send off indeed! Very niece to meet the Peach! Let me know what day your at Laguna, maybe i'll stop in, I pass the track almost daily on my way to the restaurant.

Cheers,
TB
