Yesterday I saw a Green SW heading East on Ventura under the 405...I honked, but you were focused on changing lanes

Saw this at the landmark theater. I didn't know the hanicap were allowed to have defenders. Next you will tell me Asians have them too.

Saw this white 94 on 20th in Santa Monica. It's crazy because in a few blocks all north of Montana there are the following
20th white 94
20th two houses away from white a defender under a cover I posted before
16th a green fastback with a ton of safigaurd crap.
Euclid (13th) Copley plated LE directly across the street from the guy I bought my 110 from.

Yes. I have a pink Defender with rainbow wheels. It's very rare. It's number 69 which happens to be my favorite number.
Sometimes you guys call them "D's" right? I think I'll call mine a "D".
I drove my "D" to the Starbucks to get a double mocha cappacino chocolate fudge latte with a double shot of something or other.
I love my "D". And coffee. And rainbows.

Hey Geoff, nice meeting you and seeing your 110 today. It's nice to know a fellow enthusiast is also a cyclocross racer.

Also look out for a modified 110 (roll cage, snorkel, etc.) with a Rovers Down South sticker. The owner works out at the same place as a good friend of mine, and you can spot it around Calhoun/East Bay. Apparently he loves to talk Rovers too.
Went out for a ride this AM and saw the 90 on East Bay you were talking about - white ST w/ a RN by Badger top that has seen better days. 1997 # 0937. Also got a better shot of the blue 90 parked in a new place. Can't load it right now.

There we go. Goodbye Charleston! Hopping on the plane now. We went to some great restaurants (thanks Steven - "cafemosaic" for the recommendations!!!!). Rue de Jean was awesome.

That white ST is parked on East Bay all year in very close proximity to the water, so it's definitely gotten some wear from the elements.

Great shot of the dark blue 90! Shoot me a PM the next time you're heading to Charleston - it's my home town.

Pike Place market, Seattle over the weekend; '95 Arles Blue SW, #04 of 500.

Looked to be galvanized frame, had ECR sticker on it. Seemed vaguely familiar. Local truck?

Check the back of the T.
Saw that when I was down in Ocean Reef last week at the Vineyard Vines store there. Funny I just saw the front with the BFG A/T tread. Didn't think of looking on the back side. Needed board shorts so I was in the store - but couldn't find anything I dug. I think VV stuff is pretty neat - just not my style.
