    Gonna start a topic here to share your hobbies - other than motorcycles or riding. 

    Let's see what you do with your time when you're not on the bike!

    One of my favorite hobbies is remote control Off-Road Trucks.  I am not as much into driving them as I am building them and working on them, probably because I suck at driving them and spend most of my time crashing.

    But it works out great because my 13 year old son, Riley, is an outstanding driver.  He winds up in the top 3 almost every time he races (most likely because of the great pit crew he has...ME!)

    Let me tell you, if you have a youngster, this is a great sport to do togethere.  You get to spend hours at the track, actually interacting, not like most kids sports where you just watch from the sidelines.  Plus it is a good chance to teach your kid the basics of tools and fixing things...you will be fixing a lot.

    Heres a couple of pictures... one of our trucks (guess who designed it), and the track we race at...

    Lucky, Where's the Cyclefish sticker ???? Well I have been know to collect Kiss stuff......   I Love the outdoors, Riding in the summer months then trade the chaps and bike in for the waders and drift boat.... Hit the woods for Deer and Elk hunting. Then back to Steelhead fishing til the rain stops.... It a vicious circle, But someone has to do it.

    Although not really a hobbie, photography (Fine Art, girls and cyles are my favorite subjects) is my passion along with riding. I do earn some income from it (NO! I DO NOT do weddings).

    My hobby is target and skeet shooting. Not really into hunting, mainly because I am not a patient man. But I can go out and shoot skeet all day, or just shoot some bottles and cans with a .22!

    Sailing... although it's pretty difficult to choose - go sailing - ride the bike!  So we usually ride the bike in the great weather - there is plenty of wind for sailing when its not so nice!

    Me, I like boating and target shooting. I have a small speed boat we use on the river as often as possible. And since we kind of live a bit our of town, I can go out skeet shooting or just pinging cans about 15 minutes from the house.
