Hammer's picture makes me relax just looking at it. Looks great.

Awesome Hammer! Long exposure?

Yep, Barb .... 2.5 seconds, with the camera on a tripod. I was just happy to be able to move quick enough to push the 10-second timer and hustle into the photo !

Nice looking kitchen, RS. I'm sure it will be nice to cook and spend time in there.

This weekend I put the liner in my riding gear. I feel like the Michelin man, though it's comfortable and warm riding in it now that temps have cooled.

There may be some but this one doesn't have dual pane windows etc. like the Winnebago did.

I could post these in the "Most Recent Purchase" thread, but I like the people here more.

I got a few plastic pieces and new graphics for my toy.

Very nice. I've been trying to decide what to do with my Sumo as well. I can't just leave it the regular XR Red and Black, gotta do something totally different.

Pretty cool, phydeaux. I think you need a few more logos on that thing though.

I do that for most every bike. Hoping a GS Adventure fits well.

Gonna have to change the logo on the side of the FJR to "Couch Rocket" pretty soon. That beast is going to be a dream to ride with that Penske I bet.
