agreed - I'm going to pick one of them and have it printed to frame. It will be a good one for the office wall.

Wayne,

I'd leave the parking lot in -- as you have it a few posts above. Makes the realistic mural stand out all the better.
Ride There!

They all know how much practice you've had plugging a tire, so they were just there enjoying the show! I'm sure Petey was just full of helpful suggestions!!

I was thinking of sharing this photo of four of my favorite people NOT helping me fix a flat. But decided against it. It was a little off center...

Yes. Petey was the one that discovered it. In the comms as we were leaving lunch, he said, in his german accent, "I think yer tire is a little low!"...then the frivolity began. SE Ohio has taken more air out of my tars than other places... After my experience with you laughing at me as I stop 100ft into a ramble ride...I check air pressures every morning when I ride. Ridicule has a way of modifying behaviour...sometimes.

I've seen photos of Marty dressed up for a fancy event. You'd never know it was the same guy we see in the photos on this board. Surely someone else dresses him for those events because there's clearly a complete lack of fashion sense there.

A fresh tire? 4000m down in the App. mountains.

How many miles are left on this front tire? It just went through the Cherohala both ways and Wayah Rd.
Didn't look like this at all at the beginning of the ride.

Just funnin widcha...I am a bit more conservative now...I just give jwilly my takeoffs so he can wear out the outside edges of the tars.

Yeah. 100ft from the starting gate of the Ramble. Like I said, SE Ohio has taken more air out my tars than any other state. Even Kali-FOUR-knee ya.

Pics submitted. I had 4 that I had narrowed it down to.
If Tapa Talk was working, I would put the ones I did not put up on here.

Thanks for all your hard work and taking your time to put this together! I find myself looking for a photo for the calendar when riding to worthy places all during the year and looking forward to seeing everyone's great captured moments for this years.
