OK (LOL) I'm dumb I guess? But, what do you do if you hook a VW doing 80 going the other way.

Bikerman...I can drink with the boys on this one... I get to pay my ex!! Long story... but women's lib bent me over on this one.... lol

Since the love of my life passed away last Sept. 11, my hobbies seem to have become mowing, weed-eating & house maintenance!! He gets a 'blessing' every now and then for being gone!!!

But I do love to collect depression era glass - mostly green boopie (bubble), primitives, old chalk pieces - mostly dog stuff (am owned by a French Bulldog), old advertising stuff, Whiting-Davis (it's a shiny stuff thing lol). Not going to admit that I liKe vaseline, too.... lol THE GLASS!!! THE GLASS!!!!

Used to be into archery... won all of our 3 state tournaments 2 years in a row, back to back (in my other life), love to hunt and fish... mostly approach the woods now with a camera... things change..... and bikes... always bikes.

Just anything to make me get off the couch!!!

Music? Old Time Rock & Roll!!

My boys have been my hobby since my oldest was born.

We have mountain and road biked. Fished, waterskied, gone four wheeling, boated, watched movies and played PS2 together.

Early on I was their (and other kids)hockey and tennis coach and have watched them develop and progress. They have competed at varsity levels even as freshmen and garnered state honors.

My older son is a terrific artist and has all of personality traits of a biker. My pride in them is immeasurable. Their accomplishments will far exceed mine. My accomplishment is them.

Hey Kevin! I've also done some stereo photography using slide film when I use to work at Eastman Kodak. That is how I got involved with their camera club. I have an old stereo Realist that I used.


Most folks use slide film for it. It just adds a certain richness and - well - depth, that just isn't there in prints. I used Realist format cameras for a few years, at least until Kodak stopped mounting them. Cheap commercial mounting was the only attraction of it to me. Without that advantage I VERY quickly shifted over to twin camera rigs of one sort or another until I finally built the new camera from a pair of old Argus C3s. A hacksaw, some epoxy a few bolts and you've got a full-frame interchangable lens stereo camera. Using that I get standard mounting commercially which I can easily preview and then switch over to 7-sprocket stereo slide mounts if I want to.

Got a few radio control race cars too, been racing them half my life, they have come a long way.



I knew I liked you for a reason Jerry.
This is my Hyperdrive Hyper10 with a 9 turn double Mister Twister motor, panasonic 6 cell batteries and a Tekin regen electronic speed control. It's belt drive, carbonfibre chassis with full suspension tuning.

I go surfing.
I like different types of music.
I have alot of things I enjoy doing but come to think about it, I don't really have any one thing I could call a hobby.
That is since bikes are out.

Lately though, I've been into camping trailers. Going camping in them (duh), but also restoring older ones.

Pretty obvious I like tinkering with things...

Welcome to the State of Insanity.
You have just passed the outer reaches of the Mind.
You are now entering the Biker Zone.
If you are experiencing Audio or Visual difficulties, do not be alarmed.
This is not a technical difficulty with your motorcycle,
but rather a breakdown of your psyche.
The illusions you are about to experience may cause dizziness, sweating,
heavy breathing, heart pounding, exhaustion, and ultimately "ECSTACY".
Hope you enjoy your trip at the 'Biker Zone'.
Happy Trails

Can you realy fire a long bow while on a bike? Makes me wonder if there are a bunch of road signs in your area with arrow holes in them...

Sin city was incredible !!! A true masterpiece . I will own a copy the second it becomes available .

You should try mixing some of your interests , for example Kitten wresteling , now that I'd watch , cept it would probably be fixed .

So how can we convince the youngest woman on the site to show a pic of herself ?
Maybe if I say Plese , or pretty Pleeeze

I'm 2hrs from 'Sin City', wanna see the real thing?

JUST SAY YES YOUNG BRO!!!

I use to love comic books! Have you seen the movie Sin City? It's not a movie everyone will love, but I thought it was fantastic! I'm also really into music and wrestling...I know, I'm FAR from your typical girl. Don't get me wrong though, one of my favorite parts of wrestling has a lot to do with the beautiful biceps and body of John Cena! I'm sure there are many who will agree with me on that. Has anyone heard his new CD that just came out? I haven't had a chance to pick it up yet. There are some really girly things I like too. I love kittens and the color pink!

I know im really crap at it, but ive taken to fishing; i love it. Really started on the ocean now its purely river fishing. For the first 2 months a fellow nurse and i used to take off down to the river about 40km away and caught nothing; zippo, nada. But slowly im getting there. Won't kill them though; too cruel so I say sorry to them and let them go unless my buddy grabs it before me and then we light a fire and cook it. Ive in the nurse team for the Reel Women's Classic up here; Any suggestions for a team name?

Tuesday Karen and I went to the local auction, what a slow sale.
Bought a spaniards saddle stirrup boot protector made of heavy brass. Reminds me of a boot skid the flat-trackers use.
Fits all around the front half of a boot.
Way too rare to find one of these. Whats it worth?
I have no clue, but have only heard stories of it, never seen one till now, and I own it. Thats the best part.
