From '94 into '99 I lived just off Lynnhaven near Indian River & Kempsville. And I'd have said this via PM but it says yer overdue to clear out your messages.

Hi Civ,

I too, live near Indian River & Kempsville.

My premier membership just expired (yesterday?) so now I have to delete a TON of PM's before I can receive another. :/

Cheers!

Pics of my Triumph coming soon. @bmwguyx5, your 998 is perfection, what a beautiful and classic design before the ugly 999 came out. Love your Beamer mc too!
I agree on the 999 being butt ugly, hence when I was hunting for the Duc, it had to be the 996/998. I wouldn't of mind if it was a 1098 or 1198 but at the time it was priced out of my reach. BTW,She only has a little over 3 thousand miles.

Post pic of your Triumph when you get a chance. I actually wouldn't mind a Thruxton myself.

^You're reading women magazines? How would that take away time and money from your X?


AquilaBMW, they come to me for car advice now

So far I count (4) E39 in the same stable as E53.

I wanted the R, the traditional frame (for Cervelo) compared to the aero S, so a traditional grupo made sense. This was a dream bike for me, so if I was ever going to do it, it was this time. I haven't regretted it. While it is beautiful to look at, especially the details, it works very well too. A friend always told me that others wear out, while Campag wears in. I get it. Now I have to decide how many custom Campy shop tools I am going to add to the kit. And I had to move away from SPD-SL pedals, I couldn't put them on this bike. And then I decided I needed Zipp 303s. And so it goes.

Distractions indeed.

A couple more shots of the details.

Jeff, you have chosen wisely. Campy never let me down and had smoother feel than Dura Ace for me. As precise as Shiamno is, Campy never had a notched or snappy feeling. It's hard to describe, but Campy just has a distinctive feel about it that I kept coming back to. Much like a BMW. Enjoy and watch out for those Campy exclusive tools as they will take over a tool box. Ask me how I know.

- with the pic, I get it! "TwinsPoppa".

Cool.

Watch out though, 'cause they grow up sooooooo fast. I just walked my youngest daughter (26) down the aisle on Saturday. Man, and picking her up from kindergarten seems like yesterday....... Yep, they grow up really really fast.
