We went to Red Rocks where my buddy set up two lights. We took a bunch of photos.

I liked the shots and they are the only shots I have of my wife of 22 years riding with me, so I decided to post them. Now my question....Why does anyone care about the other crap, it is a good picture of my wife and dog. I was out riding today while you internet critics were sitting around looking at pictures of me riding.

Now I believe that is the most I have ever said in a post.....and I am done.


P.S.

Thanks Jon and Jguerin for the nice comments.
Great response Juan and a touching story. We lost our 15 year old German Shepard in 2006 so I know exactly how you feel. I too was confused about all the concern of HOW the photo was created I just thought it was a cool photo and IMHO no different than some of the color enhanced or artistically modified shots others have posted. So now every knows "the rest of the story" (not that it really should matter)

So sorry to hear about your dog you have my sympathy as that is a tough loss!

When I saw this photo and read the post I thought "Wow, that guy really IS lucky to have a girlfriend who so obviously loves to ride". When I looked closer I said "Damn, I know her!" Dude, you're way past lucky, better hang on tight to that girl.

Dad!! What's up?! Have I just caught you checking out my girlfriend?! It took me posting a picture of her for you to sign up? HAHA! figures.

For everyone else.......I'll post one up for you Dad. Heres 2 good ones of him (xrttman) and his "significant other" on a family trip we took to Scotland.

I've lost two German Shepherds so far. One at 10 and one at 9. It sucks. My Boxer is 5 going on 6 and my Boxer-Pit Bull is only 2. Dogs are amazing animals and should always be treasured. I'll give my two a hug from your Husky Juan.

You caught me! I admit it: shapely blondes and motorcycles still get my attention! I also love the photo of your Mom and I at the head of the arrow in Scotland. Wonderful trip!!!

"Dogs are amazing animals and should always be treasured", a very true statement!

She's pretty good with accepting my hobbies and partaking in them too. Here she is doing some precision shooting:


At 100yds she got the body of the lock with the 1st shot, and then the loop with the 2nd.
