If I hadn't paid Todd Z's and Dr Kanyon Keeney's mortgage last month I'd be all over it!

I'm, no, my wife is happy to say that unfortunately the little Duc was sold today before I contacted him. Thanks for the link though, John. It would have been the perfect Giro bike.

John- I wasn't paying attention...that Duc would have been nice in my garage and after your contribution to my retirement, it could have been an option.

Anyway I was thinking about riding all day today, so I decided it was time to test ride the Baby GS...ran nice but looked like something from MadMax...

I call Dibs on this one

Just saw this, but can't get down to see it until we get back from WV next week. Don't none of yous guys steal it from me.... I've already contacted the seller.

It may not be the perfect Giro bike, but it sure looks cool. And it's a scrambler!

I saw this one as well but I have a 1965 YG1 that needs reassembly. Lucky you if the guy has a title since mine does not. :)

Monday afternoon I had my 2nd Refractive Lensectomy and 2 days later seeing 20/20. Wow, what a difference being able to see clearly and at a great distance than before! For the first time in 50 odd years No more glasses!
If you go with just Lasik Cullom in Williamsburg is discounting 900 clams ($450/eye). Since I wasn't a Lasik candidate they honored the discount for the Lensectomy which was cool.

Sweet deal. Glad you made out well when everything was said and done. I've been considering laser surgery for a long time.

Managed to ride the DRZ back home from Powhatan. Needed to straighten out the forks a bit and still need to bend back the handlebar some but otherwise she's looking pretty good. We've gotta do a ride to eat on Sunday, OK?? Who's with me?!
