    I am an avid triathlete and spend a lot of time training.  I trail run and lap swim a lot.  Anyone interested in the sport that also rides give me a shout.

    [blockquote]Dirk said: 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![/blockquote] Wow! Great hobby! Something I always wanted to have knowledge of and never had the opportunity.  I am jealous! Enjoy!

    Other than motorcycles, my other hobby would have to be taking care of our adorable Pomeranian, Waffles. He’s a very energetic dog that loves to play with my kids, follow my brother around (urging for food), and even enjoy walks in the park during my days off. Other than that, he’s a spoiled brat (you can thank my wife for that), with a part of our shopping list dedicated to his dog toys and treats. In general, he’s really a nice lad, a handful, yes, but a very loyal one at that.

    Although Mountaineering was something I usta breath...not doing it so much now a days. Got to say it is hands down equal to riding for me, and I kinda miss it.

    New Hobby... Airbrusing R/C Cars.  Many know my son and I love off-road RC car & truck racing.  Up until now we always went with pretty basic paint schemes I did myself.  Wel I have been working on my air brushing and these are my first attempt at a little more complex paint scheme...

    Very cool Lucky!  I'm in the process of getting ready to try and Airbrush / paint my own new body for a custom dually build.

    Cool, be sure to post a picture when you're done.  Here is another I recently did for myself (my son gave me a hand-me-down he doesn't race anymore)

    Very cool I just got my Custom Dually rolling under it's own power today with the battery and changed connection plugs.


    Zip ties will be my tempoary set up I have more parts on the way.  As for the body I may get a different body.  It may not fit with my old body I wanted to use.

    Nice. You could replace the zip ties holding the battery with Velcro straps (like the ones u bundle cables with) that is what we use to hold the batteries are most of our vehicles. Very secure and quick removal

    Can't wait to see it with the body

    Ya my custom dually build is slowly comming together.  Now if I can find a hard body style I like and modify it to fit properly then paint it.

    Repaired my grill's rotton guts, the grill shell is stainless but most of the guts were sheetmetal.

    Not now, 1/8 " angle iron and stainless sheet.

    I made everything but the new burners.

    I'll send mine up Rev!!! Wish I had learned more about working with metal.

     

    Fine Art photography is mine...We have some VERY interesting Skies down here in West Texas...View from our front yard of a storm and full moon rise. That is a working water windmill.

    A friend of mine has a large pond full of fish on his property, he put up a windmill to areate (sp?) the pond.

    Thank you. I was doing the same.

    I've been doing these kind of projects and fixing all my broken stuff when I can.

    Hopefully my wife's and my health issues quiet down some this Winter so I can get to my bike build.
