We're now in the initial planning stages of a bunch of riding in Europe in 2014!

Still have the 'zuki - but also moved up to an 1150GS in December.


Dude - Why did you give up your gig of Antiques Road Show...
Just kidding.
Enjoy your retirement and riding.

Are you referring to the picture above your post?
If so, can you elaborate some more on it?

Oha, a Squirre Sidecar. She must be tough, or did you change the swing arm of the Sidecar? I start my hack carriere with an combination like that. The bike stays, the sidecar is changed now. . .

Hello! It is the original Squire ST2 from the early '80's. It still has the torsion bar suspension. Nancy is pretty tough, but appreciates it when I try to miss the big holes in the road.

It is a huge mural (55' high by 35' wide) on the decommissioned grain elevator in downtown Berthoud, Co. The painting was executed by fine artist Susan Dailey and Eleanor Yates. Titled 'Berthoud's Roots' it reminds of the beginnings of the town. The project sponsored by Berthoud Arts and Humanities Alliance. More info: http://www.susankdailey.com/Berthoud.php

There are more murals on grain elevators in the US:
Colorado, Wyoming and Iowa each having 1, Minnesota 2 are the ones on record.

So, if you have a SO and are looking for a fitting backdrop you know where to look for
