Nice!

I have three monitors on my work computer and your wallpaper is on #2. That's the monitor that I use for shared work and presentations online. My co-workers always have great comments about your pictures.

Now all I need to do is Photoshop Shoodaben into a couple of them!  :beerchug: ;)

Well thanks so much for the encouragement. Shocked someone actually used one as a wallpaper - too damn cool!

Maybe I'll start taking a few pics with my connie in the frame, and then roll her out for the last exposure - make it easier for you to PShop your own ride in  ;D

Nah, the solution is simpler...I need to get on the bike and ride! :motonoises: Take my own pics with the gorgeous scenery instead of living vicariously through the wallpaper.

UDOTHISWELL! No, that's to big for a vanity plate. GR8SHTZ? That may work but open for interpretation. NICPIX? NFOCUS?  :great: :beerchug:

Hi,
        Looks like Florida!!! ;D ;D ;D >:D >:D >:D
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” -Samuel Adams

40,000 Miles on October 3, 2017 -- approx. 2 years and 3 months of sunny, clear, hot, rainy, snowing, cold, windy, dirty, exciting, straight, boring, curvy and so much more, riding adventures. And you can see it all over the cockpit, not just the odometer. Looking forward to the next 40K!

:D :D

Literally rode it out of the dealer from getting new rubber and pads all the way around at 39988 miles.  Had 38 lbs per tire from them when I got rolling.  Stopped a few miles down the road, added air using a gas stations in nozzle gauge at 39992 miles.  Road 8 more miles, pulled over, took a few 40K pics and let 2 lbs out of each tire (by estimating how long a release).  Rode on and it settled to 44 per tire. :nananana:

Forgot that part till I uploaded the photo today and saw the 47/46 and just KNEW someone would give me grief - but only 40K photos I gotz.

Figures it would be you two bustin' my chops  :rotflmao: :truce: :rotflmao:
