    I know at least some of us have other interest besides Harleys, whether it be boats, planes or cars.

    Post some pics here and tell us a little about your other "obsession".

    Uh, Hobbit, are those platform pedals on that bike????? Or the cool shoes that just makes them look like platforms? Nope, I just looked again, I think those are platforms....probably are. What year is that, I'm guessing pretty old since it looks like a rigid bike. No suspension in the front? Hard to tell from the pic. I haven't raced since 1998, I don't know if I have any pics of me on the bike or not, should have somewhere, I'll dig around for some....Uh, I think you can have the zorbing....do you happen to have video of that?

    I am into my 1967 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme, Competition combat pistol shooting, Helping out with the junior rifle team at the gun club I belong to. I used to be really into racing RC cars on a dirt track. All of which are expensive habits. Rc parts and ammunition are getting as bad as harley parts to puchase but the hobby shop is right next door to the harley dealer.:D

    We also had some time on a sail boat in the Florida Keys.

    Sold the boat though, talk about retiring on another one someday.

    I have grown up around old cars. Original & street rods. My dad & uncle have a nice collection, which my uncle recently created an old car museum. If anyone is out riding in the Huntington, WV area, (where West Virginia, Ohio, & Kentucky meet) feel free to stop in. It's free! My uncle usually has some one there on Thursday evenings, and the weekends. If you get there & no one is there, he has his number posted on the door, just give him a call; unless he is taking my aunt to the doctor, he will run over. If you are headed that way, PM me & I can call my dad or uncle & some one can be there. (located at 14th St W & Washington Ave).

    There's probably 30 or more cars in there, some street rods, some original. I'll throw in a few pix. He also has a 2003 Road King with no miles on it. It's never been licensed or ridden. He won't even push it around the building.

    Some of the cars are my dad's, some are my uncle's. But this is my dad's 1940 Ford.....I like it...:bigsmiley10:

    The guy on the right is my uncle many years ago, sort of looks like Fonzy I think. He has that picture in a car like the one they are in. I'll have to find out if it's the same one or one like it.

    A typical weekend day....

    Last but not least. Unfortunately, I don't have a better pic of the scoot, but I can't get it outside for the good light!

    My husband & I have a 1950 GMC truck (original) he just got finished with, & a 1973 Cougar convertible. We'll probably get rid of those and get a street rod more like pop's 40 ford....:s gotta start some where though.

    I hope you guys enjoy the pix, and if you are in the area, and want to stretch your legs, I hope you enjoy the place. Uncle J had to build a building for the cars anyway, & he can't take them all out to shows, but he likes to let folks enjoy them.

    Ball park on the date.....no biggy. I used to race downhill too, but I would do it basically the way you were dressed, figured it would give me more incentive not to crash if knees & elbows were exposed. Worked for the most part! That's why I waited so long for a motorcycle.
