G. G. D. and M.

Here's a place for the group to discuss their other brands of bikes, hobbies, and personal interests not related to Ural & Dnepr Sidecar rigs. But not politics...
Forum rules
Here's the place to chat about off-topic stuff, hobbies, and other toys you got. No political posts, they will be deleted and the poster warned. We're not always "politically correct", but the Steeds site is apolitical.

Augusta Van Buren and Adeline Van Buren, sisters, descendants of President Martin Van Buren, were the 2nd and 3rd female transcontinental motorcyclists. Arrested many times for wearing pants (leather motorcycle riding gear). At that time there were virtually no marked roads west of the Mississippi River.

(I guess this just qualifies for the 'M') In 1913 the Abernathy brothers (age 14 and 9) rode from Oklahoma to New York City on this Indian motorcycle. This was 2 years after they rode horseback coast-to-coast by themselves. Earlier they rode from Oklahoma to New Mexico when the younger - Temple - was just 5 years old. Hard to imagine kids that age heading out cross-country on their own. Their adventures are documented in a book called 'Bud and Me'.

Jaybird you got me going, for now, on this G. G. D. M. thread.

I know I'm not playing fairly not having all four in one pic. But Who is ?

When it comes to Dogs I gots a bleeding heart for them. I'm the type that wants to make them comfortable, feel loved and it's all about what I can do for them.

Here's Charger. My oldest daughter rescued him at age 4. Charger is not normal in that he is very emotional and can be passive/aggressive. Seeing his "Mugshot " helps me tolerate him.

And of course my friends dog Eddie. Broke his leg on a ground squirrel hole, chasing ground squirrels.

Or not

Your friends dog Eddie who broke his leg... is he a German Pointer or a Blue Tick Coon Hound (or some combination of both)?

2019 Honda CRF450L (Elec Start)

1991 Honda XR250L (Kick Start Only) *NOT running amok, out for Bottom & Top-End Rebuild.

List what you "have", keep the others in your precious memory bank.

His human says he is part Aussie Cattle Dog and part Jack Russel. That's funny you ask the same thing I did because when I fist met Eddie he looked more bluish than blackish gray and white and I asked the same about him being a bluish Coon dog.

Here's a still from a video of him showing his teeth. ( I'm not adept enough to dl the video )At the time my friends pack was 7. Eddie was the smallest but the fastest. I was in Colorado visiting/working ( notice the order lol . ) Then again my Mom's Husband had a some type of cattle dog, (named Bert) mix breed that had a bluish tint too.
