This photo represents the end of 59 years living at the same address in Laredo, TX (since I was 3) and moving the last of my collection 285 miles north to Leander, TX.
The house on the left side of the fence (obscured by tees) is where I grew up, and the double-wide modular home that I've lived in for the last 19 years is already gone from the right of frame. Where the red Suburban is sitting used to be my garage; it's getting moved up here next month once I've cleared the land and poured a slab.
Anyway, here you see in the front row my '72 Rickman Montesa 250 that I actually raced in 2008, with none other than Dave Aldana who blew my doors off.
In the middle is my '74 Commando 880 custom cafe racer with Kenny Dreer VR/SS bodywork.
On the far side is the original Dreer New Norton monoshock prototype bike with MkIII engine.
My bitsa Bonnie race bike at the rear, left side. I've fired it back up after a few years, it woke up instantly and wants to race again!
Never mind my son Kevin's '82 Honda CB750F which originally belonged to my late kid brother, Zed. I'm keeping it for my son 'till he rotates stateside in 2 more years.
On the far side at the rear is Kevin's '68 Yamaha YDS3 250 GP replica bike that I built in 1999 which I'm also storing for him.
Now that we've moved here to central Texas, there are any number of WONDERFUL hill country roads that start less than 5 minutes from my driveway, so already a few of my other bikes have been out and about, more than in the last 5 years combined!
