Default My Astral Form Says Hello

Hi there,

Click the image to open in full size.

I actually joined back in 07, but a whole lot of life got in the way in between then and now.
I had an 06 MCS until last year, when we sold it due to my wife's concerns about infant transport. A year later, after driving an otherwise quite flexible Element around, we agreed we couldn't do it. So we're back, waiting for delivery on a Clubman S.
So, being in-between MINIs, I feel like a forum ghost.
But in a week +/- I'll have more to contribute...

I'm an architect and a comic artist in the SF Bay area, and I build bikes.
A few sites here:
My illustration work: http://www.thirdraildesignlab.com
My bike club site: http://www.teamlopetyreclubbe.com

Anyway, nice to re-meet everyone...

thanks low
With my new ride days away and off the coast of Baja somewhere, the wait gets a bit more annoying. But I have a toddler climbing all over my face so that's some distraction...

sup Ace...
it's a Clubman S so it's going to look like the MCS in my Garage thread, but 9" longer, the same webspokes as the ones you got from me, and of course no sweet, sweet aero kit. Dang!
But hey, if a Clubman gets me a MINI despite the kid factor, then I am IN.

ginr13, you gotta love that guy. plus you know from being in LA that won't fly. He'd be getting air from being smacked around so much. Where you at?

astro, financial necessity requires that it be 'stealth' and by stealth, I mean mostly stock for awhile. HA. I AM test-fitting the concealed hitch for the 2011 model year, so that's going in and under first available weekend...

After that, its Lyle time!

Sounds good! I was talking to a Swiss MINI driver on another forum and we laughed, how we want to travel WITH our cars. Dorks!
