Probably going to be a gooey day.
Did you ride the Guzzi through Lyons mid-morning yesterday. I thnk I saw you just as you entered town proper. I was the orange 950 going the other way.

That is a nice looking bike. gotta admit, I didn't even notice it had a rider

Unfortunately you can't. Once you've posted your 20th photo the app will ask you for $1.99 if you want to host your 21st.

I had no problem with the $1.99.... I just can't stand how crappy they make my pics look with all of the compression

Two summers ago I was passing through the park from west to east. When I whined about having to pay the entry fee just to get home I was asked where I lived. When I said Boulder Co. I got in free after agreeing not to use any facilities. I couldn't help myself though and used the views.

First Sprinter HDR photo ever? (i.e. why would anyone bother)

Work is done, hay is up (ouch, usually we put up 150 ton, 30 tons this year!) So Tuesday I am gone fishin' where to you say? Mmmm the White River, then Roaring Fork. Wait maybe, Whiskey PArk, Hog Park, North Park, Rabbit Ears.. To many choices, I think I will have a beer and then decide.

I found photobucket is an easy enough alternative. They have an app you can use with a free account for direct phone upload and easy grab of the sharing link.

I just built an Android app that will take a picture and upload the picture to your dropbox and then paste the link along with your reply into the forum. Just built it a night ago though, and it's buggy as all hell since it's my first Android app and first time working with the dropbox api. I plan on working on it here and there and see what I come up with. It's going to be free so I don't have any obligation to support it...

Have a great trip. Be sure you did the required maintenance on your DR.... check the air in the tires.

I used to know Michael a bit up in Estes. (He dead now).
I know he did comissioned work for the White House and several Presidents and at one point he was a pretty big deal and had quite a following. I thought he only worked in pewter, but what do I know from sculpting?

Here's a website that might help you get an appraisal

I did have to order some new brake pads today.

stockings for leg braces

I've taken to wearing my poly-pro long pants under my Asterisk knee braces. I'm looking for other options. What about women's leggings or stockings? Important criteria: Must not run and not be too hot. I want to stay away from fish-net for fear of leaving unsightly patterns on my tender skin.

Lycra cycling tights. Light, comfortable and dry quick.
