That's at a Three State Mountain Ride as that is on the porch of the Blowing Rock Inn. 10 years ago? I think I recognize a mustache hiding a sly smile of a guilty party. MikeG is that our friend in crime who sometimes rides a Norton with a piece of white or perhaps red oak in the Rh header? Probably before my time!

The pic is at Blowing Rock Inn
I also seem to remember Peggy Strain telling me about him drying his socks in a microwave and found all he got was hot wet socks!

I wonder if the person recognizes himself?

I think Bryan was referring to this trip, and it was from Barb, not Peggy.

You're probably right Richard.
Since "something died in my head" some memories are a bit jumbled and I need to be corrected.

And it is not just memories that can get messed up, when I read MikeG's post I thought Commando Cat had a blowj*b

It's funny that Paul was the first to recognize you. He didn't even know you when could fit in that outfit
