    Couldn't figure out how to "rotate view" on this video so just lay your little heads down sideways on your desk to view this amazing sculpture/metal art.......:rofl

    Ok, Katoomer. Inquiring minds need to know...

    The picture in your online file just prior to this one below is a highly unusual photo that totally steps outside the lines of conventional art. I'm guessing it might be the inside of a Canuck bathroom as it was a raw and pervy individual that drew it. :arg

    What's the story?

    Oh yeah... if any of yous looking want to see it, the file has login protection. Try a backdoor if you've got the hankerin'.

    (edit: thieving bastard ! get the hell out of there !)

    Winter got the better of me and I just had to get the hell out of Alaska for a bit.

    I met my Dad in Las Vegas as we spent a few days bike hunting Arizona. Before it was all said and done we both owned Suzuki DR-Z400s and we were enjoying a little two-wheeled desert therapy. I got to spend my dad's 69th birthday riding in the dirt near Kingman, AZ. This is the first bike my dad has owned in 35 years.

    While in AZ we visited my sister and her son, Sean, in Yuma. I got a much need Sand-riding lesson from Sean at Picacho.

    The bike will be waiting where it's warm for the next time I need to escape.

    Thanks, Fite, it was fun catchin' up with you. Barb does a hell of a job bringing people together. :clap

    About my Pop, I truly do saver ever moment I get to spend with him. To have a Dad, a hero, a huntin' buddy, a friend and a riding partner all in the same guy, well, I'm a lucky man. I don't plan on missing many chances to make some memories with the wiry old fella, if I can keep up.

    The TAT for sure my brown brother, but not in 2011. I'm burning a lot of leave this year. Just did the week in AZ. Doing 16 days in Nicaragua in March, two and a half days in June for D2D, :clap then two weeks in HI July, then I'd like to take a week to do the Montana 1000 (which concludes at Westfest in Darby, MT) with my Dad. Then I gotta save a little time for a fall ride in the warm dirt somewhere. But with any luck I can avoid any horseback elk hunts!
    I do wanna do the TAT, but the CDR may be more do-able in the near future, or Baja, I'll have a bike- or two- in Yuma by fall! :evil
