1. Congrats on the weight loss. That is quite an accomplishment.
2. Cute wife! ;)
3. A suggestion about the pictures/slideshows: there is no easy way to get out of the middle of it and get to a menu or back home. Perhaps a link below the bottom of the photos would be helpful.
4. A description of each photo would also be helpful. Who's the asian dude you're standing with next to the motorhome?

That is Jake Zemke, American Honda AMA superbike/formula xtreme pilot.

Thanks, i'm literally 1/2 the person I used to be! ;f

Double thanks, I think she's a hottie as well. ;)

You're not the first to ask, i'm just really lazy. It's coming time to re-vamp a few things, so I may do that. Only problem, the MS slideshow creator is very basic, but very quick to create. If you hit the BACK button, it takes you back the links

Photo descriptions, read the part about "i'm lazy" above. :) The asian dude is Jake Zemke, AMA superbike racer.

I had a scorched titanium micron on it at first, sounded cool and looked great. I wanted a carbon fiber can to go with the black and found a good deal on the 2-bros, sounds even better. About the only mods I did were the front/rear suspension, slip-on and PCIII, the bike dynos at 140HP at the rear wheel...about 100 more than I need! ;f

Oh yeah, the videos. I forgot to check them out the first time. Very nice.

Salt River Canyon... ah yes.... :-)

Never did it on a bike but caged it many a time.

How did you mount the camera for the rear-facing shots?

Click on the links for some of the mounting locations. Amazing what you can do with some heavy duty velcro.
