Adding a pic of the new bike. Guess that makes it the most recent pic of me as well.

Its a Honda Shadow Sabre, technically called a VT1100C2. I'll be commuting on the bike as well as doing some trips, so I've ordered a wind shield, saddle bags, and a b!tch bar for the missus.

It has 1100cc of dispalcement, which is good enough to get movin' without being a gas guzzler. I still get ~52 miles per gallon, and the V-Twin is quick enough to take most cars off the line and comfortably cruise on the freeway without having to push the bike to its limits. A lot of cruisers are going bigger on the displacement these days, but I wanted to retain the ability to maneuver (as well as the fuel economy).

Its a blast to ride! :thumbups:

Pfft. He obviously used Mr. Clean to wash the bike for the pic. Thus the pose. The next pic he'll put up will have him drinking Captain Morgan while doing that stance

Sorry Pete, but you can't tell me there's not a resemblance

By the way, nice bike. Red and Black....my favorite

Why do you think I grew a goat and took out the earring? :thumbups:

Add another chrome dome to the mix here..... I don't shave it all off like Mr. Clean Pete, just take it down to a #1 guard with the clippers.

Anyway, just got back from vacation so I've got some recent photos of myself now. Usually, I'm the one behind the camera and my hard drive is filled with pics of my wife and 3 kids.

First one is my wife Carrie and I on a sunset cruise in Clearwater Beach. Middle one is her with our two sons at Sea World (we left our 19mon old daughter back home with my in-laws). 3rd one is a pic from earlier this summer at a neighborhood party. And the last one is all 5 of us at a wedding on Sept 14, '08.

edit: added recent family photo

Default Kocurs ugly mug

That's my ugly mug, I'm wearing a McCarty hat, and the picture on the wall in the background is a framed newspaper from the morning after the Wings swept the Flyers in the Finals, and the picture is of Darren McCarty, which by the way he autographed before I had it laminated and framed.
