    Found a cool picture of my wife's folks. It's a picture of a picture. Still very cool. Check out the dent on the tank. Katrina (Kitty) Keener and Daniel (Danny) O'Sullivan.
    If that isn't, Irish I don't know what is.

    Sucks man, sorry to hear that

    My incident was a trike that ran a red light doing 60+ in 2001, hit me dead in the passenger side door of a brand new 01 sport trac, totalled the truck with 8 YES 8 miles on it, you know that fear of buying a new car and getting drilled leaving the dealer, well I made it to the first stop light in mine...

    Guy that hit me had both ankles behind his head and gurgling blood, exactly what a 20 year old kid needs to see...

    Family history...don't have a pic, but wish I did...

    My grandparents migrated out here to West Coast in 1920's on motorcycle after burning down house while rendering lard in Ponca City, Ok.

    Grandma and Dad (year or two old), and what belongings they had left in sidecar, Gramps steering bike...(Dad is 87 now and still likes taking mine out for a spin around the block! - well at least did till couple of years ago) :eek:

    Great picture Otty. I hope to one day have another bike. Or a Vette. I think mommy would rather it be the Vette though...

    Nice pic Scott, shoulda known you had a HD wedding!! I thought about getting a dirt bike and making it street legal, but it's a tough choice. My brother died when he was 15 on a scooter, hard not to think of that... kinda the same thing Tangster was talking about...
