Re: Uh, another day in pics

Bundled up this morning. Good thing too, it was all of 30 degrees outside when I left the house. Without further delay, the day in pics.

From the Lewis & Clark Monument overlooking the Missouri River Valley and downtown Omaha- check out the airliner which just departed Eppley Airport [Bacchus, you'll have to squint].



Yours truly, sporting full riding gear [you paying attention, LTL?]. Check out the new flushmounts.



I love this kind of stuff. A neat shot methinks - the ages old, rotting shed is going to dust, apparently soon to be part of its earthen environment. On the other hand, the CBR just screams at you.



Rob [Roadrunner954] arrived from Lincoln, NE and we toured the Loess Hills Scenic Byway. My trip odometer read over 200 miles when I pulled in the garage afterwards, not bad for an extended morning ride. Please note, I only let Rob pose his red/black model in front of the faster silver/black variant because I was feeling benevolent today.



Another shot a few miles farther up in the hill country.



All kidding aside, I truly regret that I don't live closer to other Fireblades.org members. Rob's the second guy I've actually met off this board and so far I'm battin' a thou - I guess there really is something to the old saw, 'You meet the nicest people on a Honda.'

Re: Uh, another day in pics

Nice pics Chain. I especially like the one with you kneeling next to the bike. The color contrasts are nice.

Great pics Chain....the one with you kneeling next to your (faster sil/black) bike is cool as hell. I totally understand about letting the 'other' colors out in front, even if it is parked. Those pics make me miss riding in the Fall in NH, although a bit chilly, it makes for some great picture ops.

Re: Uh, another day in pics

Thanks for the kudos guys and gal.

I believe Roadrunner will be weighing in here with pics of his own sometime soon. The rat-fink caught me in the ditch with my pants down. No, not mounting a billy goat Baketech, a simple restroom break, lol.

Re: Uh, another day in pics

Very nice pics, Chain. I like the new avatar, too. Good thing that was the '02 black & red model, and not the '03 red & black, otherwise your bike might look a little, shall we say, sluggish by comparison. I mean, just look at her:

Re: Uh, another day in pics

It was great meeting you Chain, we need to do that again sometime. I think Bubba would be jealous of you, that squirrel took one look and knew you were a dead eye with that front tire!

I tell you what people this Chain guy is good folk! Here's what he did for me today.

1. bought me coffee
2. loaned me his diaper to try out
3. gave me batteries when my camera went dead
4. gave me earplugs to try out for the trip home (which made the ride more enjoyable)
5. gave into the redNblack bike being first all day
6. showed me some great riding and scenery

Chain, here's to you big dawg!
