@rollfaster I like seeing more World pics. Sweet!

@ballooney Good color car with your bike!

@tripple3 Your constant motion on two wheels is inspiring. :)

I rode Grandpa’s 41 New World 17 miles out and back on the canal to the AZ Mills mall. Took my clip on macro lense and saw some interesting stuff.

Lots of big carp in the canal right now. Many were over 12”.

Saw this bird fishing for smaller ones.

The ocotillo, and agave are starting to blossom.

The ocotillo blossoms have a really strange structure, fitting for a plant that is so bizarrely adapted to the desert.

Those two plants were alive with all kinds of insects. I managed to catch a good pic of this fly’s color changing metallic green body. Try matching that on your frame.

Also found a patch of Beavertail and cholla cactus that were starting to bloom.

When I got home my kids were freaked out that I rode my bike all the way to the Lego Discovery Center and back.

@Cory sent me a text to see if I was riding; yes; soon.
"I'm having a hard time deciding between Elgin and Velvet."
Cory text Elgin; so I rode it again.

I stopped in to give Mom hugs and hang-out for a bit before heading back home.
Another great ride along the OC Beaches.

Dude, you are going to ride the wheels off of that bike.
I have worn out the bottom bracket on this bike before.
I really don't do well with maintenance.
Damn! Five tacos! Thanks for the pics.hopefully im there next month.
I had a hard time finishing that pile.
I think the cook recognizes me and is "Hookin' me up".:cool:

It’s hard to imagine @tripple3 riding all the way there and back each month.
That guy gets the perpetual who rode the farthest award.
Anybody is welcome to ride with me. I miss @Hippie Mike
Most often lately it is Jim @Jimmy V , comes out from Michigan to Enjoy the Ride.

@tripple3 Your constant motion on two wheels is inspiring. :)
Thank you. I hope to inspire others.
The more I ride, the more I love it.
I move along; but often I'm weaving back and forth, carving like a long-boarder, honkin' my horn and smiling at everybody I see.
I got the call to work tomorrow, so I will ride my bike to the shop shining "Light for All".
Looking forward to my ride home after work.:D

I miss riding Huntington / Sunset Beaches. I lived right off of Goldenwest and PCH for a lot of years after high school, my old Huffy Good Vibrations logged many miles in that stretch.

First time I ever saw someone get a DUI on a bike was on the north side of the pier. :)

This is how it looked, well in much better shape when I came out to Texas. Then I had my accident and couldn't ride for about 8 years and it went to hell.

This is a trail sign picture showing one of the " locomotives" used on the line. A truck with a flat car built around it.
It would be a unique kitbash project in HO scale.

After selling one this weekend, I had to pick out the next one I'm going to try and move out. I selected the one that least fit my current needs and interests. I waxed the paint, and performed a spring time lube / tune up. Once that was done I gave it one last night spin to make sure everything was going to be good for whoever is going to be its next owner.

A 90s era Pepsi Point Bike.

I also checked the bike registry. Thats something I always do now before both purchasing and listing. Last year after a buyer and I agreed to a sale, the buyer pulled out a badge. Luckily everything checked out, but before that happened I was not as carefull in validation before a purchase and also a listing.

The best thing to do is is check it before you buy it. I never once found one yet that I was intersted in that was also listed as stolen. But when you find bikes at flea markets craigslist, and garrage sales like I do. Its definately something you should always check, as you may not have a receipt to prove your innocence if you find yourself in a similar situation I encountered.

I'm hoping to make it back to Rhode Island to finish the East Bay Trail from Warren to Providence this fall ( early October ). My brother-in- law, Bill started late in the afternoon from Warrren, riding to Bristol.Then we stopped to have some refreshments at the Beach House. When we hit the trail , daylight was almost done. We had to catch the Block Island ferry in the morning.

Would like to do the Eastern trail in Maine as well.
