Went to the all British show in San Jose yesterday and it was killer as usual--two of the guys I went with are brit freaky and spent a lot of money and found stuff they hadn't seen for decades--looked a bit like a convention for the elderly--I think too much time with that group might terminally depress me--the parking lot was sort of a show in itself and watching guys ride in on assorted pristine 50s and 60s bikes going TICKETY CLACKETY TICKETY and then start leaking oil the minute they stopped reminded me why I'm here and not on some Triumph or BSA forum-- Really beautiful things to see, especially the BRAND NEW Egli Vincent, made from a kit I guess because it wasn't yet painted. Never hooked up with Todd S. but us old guys left before noon. It was worth seeing but a 7 hour drive each way-- What are all the millions of little boxes and circles for? Why did the stupid log-in page decide what my avitar would be--then asked if I wanted to pick one and then refused to change it? what does input your message mean? why do they need to know what your occupation is? what does the "disable html/ubb code in my post" mean? (below) Does the statement at the bottom mean we can't post url? to see this you'll have to be in post mode I think.......that's about it, back to my nap--)

Hi Bob, If you can make it to the All British Show, surely you can make it to the Caldwell, ID show in May. And then there's Corvallis show the following weekend. You didn 't happen to see Rick Blunden there did you? He also tries to make it there every year.

I agree about this board, btw. Way too busy.

I think I did see Rick---remember I only met him once--
started to say something--then it seemed this guy was too small--don't rmember Rick being that small and thin--
could he be shrinking? probably just me--I should have asked--)

obviously going to take a year or two to figure this thing out--that was supposed to be an edit---how do they expect you to know what those stupid things do?? is there a place to go where they explain--or do I need a giant screen??
Why would you ever need to do what I just did?

Sorry for the late reply...just got back from the WA coast. It probably was Rick...if he wasn't dressed up in his riding gear, he probably did look scrawny :-) I'll be sure to tell him about this new XL board, Bob :-)
