    Hey Everybody,
    Got the Spaceliners out for a ride to Dairy Queen with My wife's son, girlfriend, and "The Little Guy" who has Mag Ray
    [​IMG]


    Figured out that his bike was 12 inch (not 16) so he needs a little more growing time yet
    He helped me tune it up and reminded me to lube the chain :lol: 8)

    He was cranking on that the little bike keeping up and trying to pass :D
    We got my wife's son and girlfriend out riding for the first time on a long time
    [​IMG]


    And the Ultimate goal: Dairy Queen
    Everybody had fun and treats

    Tomorrow, Back to DQ with my wife's Dad :D
    Today was a good day. Thanks for looking
    Steve

    Been waiting a long time for you to post some pics. Sweet Bike, great in action :D Thanks for posting
    Thanks guys about the DQ run (warm March). Think Skipton commutes with his so he's probably the highest miles
    Hope more people are getting back out with the nice weather

    It was a perfect weather day in Mpls! 80F, low humidity, and really sunny :D
    So I corralled my wife into a short ride on the Spaceliners

    Thanks GCrank and Skipton! :D
    Hopefully you caught some of the other Rat Rod cars that my FIL and me saw on Sunday:
    viewtopic.php?f=1&t=54249&start=45

    So since I took out the Liner lately but have been riding the Felt more,
    I realized I really miss the Spaceliner (still have to fix the creaky BB)
    I also got inspired again after Jackdaw got the chrome frame thread going (thanks Bud)
    viewtopic.php?f=6&t=59083

    Unfortunately for a lot of people SW of MN (Colorado fires),
    We are getting a fair amount of smoke in our skies
    Lots of bright orange sunrises and sunsets

    Mplscoaster came to Chicago last weekend and brought his super cool Spaceliner from Build Off 6

    The bike is soooo fast it's hard to get pics of it :roll: :wink:

    Thanks for posting the other pics Skipton.
    The action art shots of the Spaceliner in the rain are too cool

    Kingfish: we may have quite a few more visiting now, I hope...
    Yours looks good in front of the fountain!

    Okay, so now that I have some time after the build off,
    I'm going to add the pictures from the next day after visisting Skipton in Chicago

    Next morning (after the Skipton and Rick gathering) I went for a ride to find the beach while my wife went for a run
    It was only about a mile away (way over shot it the first time) :lol:

    This shot was when I realized why my seat hurt (unusual) becasue it tilited backward :lol:
    Really nice morning!
    [​IMG]

    Looks really differnt shooting into the sun, HUGE Beach, I'm in heaven!

    [​IMG]

    Rode out to the end of the pier
    When I was doing this shot, a guys says "Those are some wide whitewalls!" must be the glare :lol:
    [​IMG]

    Kinda like the curving of the pier in this shot
    [​IMG]

    One more with downtown Chicago int he background
    [​IMG]

    So head back to the hotel, really cool little street it was on
    [​IMG]

    Headed out with my Wife , back to the beach
    [​IMG]

    It was GREAT! Super soft sand, lots of space, sunny and ~90. we both ended up falling asleep :lol:
    [​IMG]

    After some sun, sand and water, we headed down the lake
    Lots of people take their bikes to the beach volley ball courts
    [​IMG]

    Back out on the pier for some more shots
    [​IMG]

    Sea gulls hung out here. Funniest thing I saw was seagulls eating bees that were after the clover?! :lol:
    [​IMG]

    Nice shot looking out to the lake of my wife. Heard some monster motor power boats in the background
    [​IMG]

    One of me
    [​IMG]

    Rode for a several more miles and just absorbed the great day
    Later that day we rode to get some chicago style pizza (MMMmmm!)
    We ended up having to weave through the thousands of Cubs fans exiting Wrigley field :shock: :lol:

    This area (just north of Downtown) reminds me of Uptown Mpls but enormous
    My Wife took one more shot at the hotel
    [​IMG]

    Packed up the next day and headed home. Kinda short trip but well worth it, for a whole bunch of reasons
    Thanks again Rick and Skipton

    Thanks for looking
