A little late on posting these pics, but the wife and I had a fabulous 50/50 ride around the state of Colorado over the 4th of July, four days and a little over 1,000 miles.

Just takes some time away from work and family commitments.
My goal is to get a shot of me jumping this new one and some porn like this:

Maybe I can photo shop my new one in there?

No no no... if you do that with that, you can do it with the new one too, no doubt about it, and you count with our support. Just post the resulting pics
