    I'm a regular under a different name over on MTBR and recognize several other regulars over here. I grew up in OC so rode all these trails in my younger days but now usually don't go any further North than the SJT unless we're doing something special like Mt Wilson this weekend :) I'm retired and have a wife still working diligently so try to get out of town to ride at least every other month to mix things up. Attached is photo of me riding last Fall in Crested Butte.

    Welcome to the looney bin @mtbMike. I can already see you’re not a one hit wonder and we welcome that. Just a word of warning though you might want to put up an avatar picture before one is picked for you:laugh:...I’m a bit north of you but never afraid to travel for a good ride.

    Welcome @mtbMike . I may be making a move to North County later this year so maybe you can show me the goods down south.

    I'm willing to show you what I know and I'm available any time but have to admit I'm a creature of habit so don't get around as much as some people. Depending on what you like too ride and how hard, Salespunk on MTBR is the North County guru. He's leading a 20 mile, 5000+ foot "Tour de North County this weekend but he likes to hammer a pace I'd rather not keep with my AARP status. :rolleyes:

    Yep, I did see that and I was planning on heading down to join but he ended up postponing the ride.

    @mtbMike you are in good company.

    We need to organize a hare scramble race of all of the @mike s on this board. Purely for bragging rights. We all know @Mikie is the big dog. But when it comes to pure grit and domination my $ is on @Mikie Robin Mcguire

    Hello @mtbMike! Welcome here from elsewhere. Ride a lot, write a lot.

    Can you change your name though? We have a lot of Mikes. Could we interest you in one of the following:
    Chester
    Bernard
    Jebediah
    LeRoy
    Artemis

    Ahhh, well, I s'pose we can have another Mike. Welcome aboard! :thumbsup:

    The name Artemis Gordon would rock! Man! Does that carbon date me. Remember the show Wild Wild West?

    Anyway! Welcome @mtbMike . I’ll guarantee you this is the friendliest MTB forum on the planet. I’m the sheriff around here... see how I hooked that in with Artemis and Wild Wild.... oh never Mind!) Like the other brothers have said, ride lots write lots, it’s how it works round these parts....

    Don't worry about the AARP junk, until the whole "old enough to know better" thing kicks in. Welcome

    Maybe we should just number the Mikes - Mike1, Mike2, or go the BMW route M1, M2, M3 or my favortie M4!

    Welcome to IMTB who is co-sponsored by AARP (not really)

    Damn AARP riders, trying to make me look bad!

    You gave away your secret identity already. Now stay off my lawn (or...horse pasture, I guess)!

    So I tells this new "Mike" guy the same thing I tells all the other new members of the Illustrious IMTBtrails crew. I says "Ride a lot and Write a lot."

    This man took me seriously! Props for starting ten threads, beautiful photos, relevant and useful info, poignant opinions and two pretty bikes.

    Well done, sir! :cool:

    Now about that name change to Artemis Gordon... :confused:
