He gets decent mileage. It's an ongoing tradeoff between give and take.

Luggage goes in his hands. Baggage will be sorted out by his therapist in 30 years.

Shot was taken the first week of August 2004, if I remember correctly. Man, it was serious cold up there!

He's probably off and secretly taking spy photos of some Newfoundland lighthouse, as I write this.

It's like the freakin' 'Cold War'. Which it kinda is, when you consider the temperatures we've been experiencing here, this Spring.

When you get into politics, this is exactly the kind of photo that will surface! You with the enemy!

Or when it comes down to New Year's Eve, and Mike has beaten me by just one lighthouse photo, I'll look back and kick myself for inviting him along on that trip to Trinity Bay, in May.

Tormenting your kids again John? He's got the same look on his face as the last time I saw him?

Here's another one from me with no contrast for the lighthouse in the sun (I'm sure Geoff will try an edit ), you can actualy see the lighthouse in the second pic:

This explains why Geoff never posts anymore "anyone up for a run" threads? I'm still going easy on him....:grinner

Lighthouse

So, here are some photos from Point Loma, CA.. There are 2 light houses on the same site. One of the lighthouses is now a museum while the other is protecting the busy port of San Diego.

How can you miss the bike? It's that black metric cruiser with the low end torque, the perfect machine for doing battle in urban traffic.
