Thanks Grumpy  I always enjoy your picture's  I want you to do what you feel like you must do I will miss them but you have got to spend a lot of time on this and I am sure it is almost like a job and not fun anymore so take a break or quit I understand  but when I am in town I will give you a call once a year and I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving  hope you have a nice meal somewhere.

I can understand why you need a break from the weekly photos.  It's got to be a lot of work and consume a great deal of time. 

That looked like a R75 BMW.  I had a couple of R75's.  They were a great motorcycle; light weight and fairly responsive.  The fact that they didn't vibrate much was quite a change. 

In our area I don't see many Victory motorcycles.  I haven't spotted a new Indian motorcycle either.  I think the dealer network is a little weak in our part of the country.  I do like the new Harley Street in the 750 cc version.  I'll have to take a look at them when they come out this spring.  As I approach my 7th decade the RG can get heavy and more difficult to handle when I'm moving it around.  My '76 FXE is easier!  I guess I could ride the old shovel cheaper than buying a new bike. 

Your gas price is a little higher than ours but I'm sure ours will increase also.  In the 1960's I had a Standard Station and sold gas for 29.9 for years.  Everyone complained at that time the price was too high! 

We'll miss you and your photos if you decide not to continue.  How are we going to keep tabs on Lisa?

Grumpy, Thanks for all the time and effort.  I'll miss the weekly picture thread, but you need to take care of yourself.  Maybe you could at least check-in from time-to-time and let us know how you're doing.

Grumpy, I don't get over here to often but when I do you're my first stop.  Hope you're doing well, would hate to see you go if it comes to that, will just have to make a special effort to ride down and swing over for a visit.  Shouldn't be to hard to talk "Coastie" into it as well!  Take care my friend.

Hey Grumpy, Thanks for all the weekly pics. Sorry you feel you have to give it up but whatever keeps you healthy and happy. Hope you feel better. Are the Dr's ever going to wire up your sternum? I bet that would make you feel a lot better also.

Grumpy thanks for the pics, I really look forward to them. I may have to relocate to your neck of the woods, cause it has the three things that makes life worth living.

1. Fine women!

2. Lots of bikes and nice cars/trucks.

3. Oh and really fine women.

I thought I had replied to this thread.

As always, I appreciate the comments.  It's one of the reasons I do these threads.

Health is what it is.  I probably won't get much better, I do need to quit smoking, but don't have the balls to do it.  Add to that the aches and pains of getting older.

The main reason I feel like quitting is I get frustrated with the two sites I work with.  Some days they don't seem to work well.  The other is that sometimes I don't feel like I got enough or the right pics to post.

I don't see me actually quitting, but maybe scaling back and taking a couple of days each week to not do anything.
