Thanx!

Your narrative is much-appreciated; I hope to wander across South Dakota later on this Spring solo with my SE. Hopefully I won't have a need for X-rays or the like.

Watch your size....

Color-coordinated Fleet?

Tell me it's pure coincidence your new four-wheeled acquisition just happened to be black & white. Tell me you're not going to be sporting black gear and a white helmet.
