Even though I know the likelihood of me winning one of these is about as high as that of me being able to shoot the moon with a slingshot, I still buy a chunk of raffle tickets every year for the Wheels Through Time giveaway. I hope that one day Dale will pull my ticket and I can add a bike that I previously wouldn't have been able to (I got kids to feed) to my collection. This year he's doing TWO giveaways, a 1935 and a 1936 VL...oh come on little rock...hit that moon.

I hope all of your Christmas dreams come true. One of mine is to be transported back to Club La Vela some time in the late 90's when my body spit out a hangover like I was king of the world. Just one day of fun, then back to my working stiff nonsense again. Anyway, enjoy your Christmas and have some yuletide cocktails with your friends.
