You can read some/many of the FAQ/HowTo threads (including how-to post pictures) here:

I have rode home with worm clamps in a pinch. Sounds like you had a blast. I am off to make a new friend today through the wife, I think. Engineer moved out here ,oil boom. No place to put his bike. So jumping on the bike to visit this morning.

I wish I had some riding buddies around here. Between the wife and my 5year old who starts kindergarten next week, there just never seems to be enough time for much of anything.

Get a bike for the 5yr old. Once they start riding, they wont stop asking to go anytime they're awake. I started mine at 3yrs, 12 now, bigger bikes. Ride atleast once a week 4-5 hrs. I need to find riding buddies for him now that can keep up. Flat track raced last night, currently eating breakfast before we head out again today to ride in the coo pines up north. I may need a second job just to keep tires around here!

With the price of hotels in Midland, Odessa and the jam packed mancamps out in the Permian, Id be buying some 5th wheels to put on your property to rent out. You'd have another new bike in no time!
