Never been to Big Bend, but have several friends who have been many times.  Until recently, I was a workaholic/dedicated employee.  Got dumped by my company so my accounts could be given to younger reps.  Over 90% of my acct's went with other companies, so my company dumped me for nothing.  Sad part is now I have the time to tour, but not the funds. 

Like you, I am divorced and my boys are grown and gone, too.  Hopefully I will find a new job soon, and actually get vacation days to do some touring.  Only God knows for sure.   Thought you were afloat for a while.  If not yet, have a great time and keep us guys on the straight and narrow.

All in good fun Sword Guy. I thought we got that echo thing worked out to the OP's satisfaction.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Rick, that was too much, being a grand father myself.  Guess everyone has fun riding Harley's.  Perhaps I need to change my middle name from Eric to Harley. 

 Hope all have a great week and pay special attention to that ECO indicator, to improve your MPG.   See how I fit that in, Jim?

Actually Oscar. But your lead in was too much to pass up ;)

Old school from the old boys club!


Doesn't carry as much weight as it use to, considering the women that race sport bikes today.


I have always wondered why there are no ladies doing MotoGP or WSBikes? Seems like they would be the ideal weight for those bikes, and find sponsor money easily. The only one I can think of is Melissa Paris in the American Daytona 600 c.c. class who runs back of the pack.

.... on my small bucket list is riding to Texas and go camp for a couple of nights in Big Bend national park. From what I've read, it's beautiful.
Never been to Big Bend,...   

My dinger sounded...
...did someone say Big Bend?.....I love it out there.....







..so what does this have to do with the (current) topic? (women of Concours until it gets moved or changed)....my wife refers to my motorcycles and Big Bend as my mistresses. (that counts, right?)

..and yes there is sailing there too (of a sort).

Great pics.  BTW, how many ladies are on this site?  I only know of Nicole, but don't go to every section or thread here.  Just curious about C14 riders.  Seen tons of ladies ion cruisers/Harley's, but few on sport or touring bikes. . . tomp

I would like to know too.  She is the only one I have heard of on these forums.

That should not be surprising.  The C14 (and other sport touring bikes) is a tall, heavy, and big bike- which is not the demographic that most women would go after.

Beautiful pictures Marty! Now I really want to go to Big Bend.

I'm okay with being the token female on here :)
As far as the demographics of the bike,  yes it is a big tall bike, almost to tall for me. But when I was looking for bikes, I wanted something sporty, with luggage and fast! I need my speed fixes.
It's kind of funny when I take my Vmax out and people usually comment on  a woman on a Vmax, and I look at them and tell them that's it's my small bike. The looks and remarks are priceless!

I looked for a picture of the token female, but didn't find one.  This is what I currently resemble, with my twin, Big Foot.  I'm too old to be embarrassed, so where is your pic?  Not on a bike with FF helmet, but maybe one in your uniform.  I respect all those who have and are serving our country... tomp

I agree! Here's me.
