Long time lurker here to say hi :) Few pictures..

So I have been a long time lurker and have found it's time to say hello to all.

So it's a groovy Easter Sunday, Here in South Florida
And what better to do than wash the mini and take a few pictures.

So here come some pictures of the mini and the nice sky in s.Florida


Also its a 2003 MCS that I love more than my girlfriend







Fun With TEST 2.0









My 2 day old Yoko tires 2nd set <3 them



Its a bird






So I hope you all welcome me

Also I plan to start doing some major mods as soon as I hit 48,000 only 5k more to go :P

And if anyone needs any help with motor cycles (Harleys)
Just pm and I will help


Thanks
Shawn

The camera is a Nikon D70S and the lens I was using is a Nikon DK 18-70mm
(It's my other baby)

About the girlfriend thing, We were driving along one night and she said you love this thing more than me. So I said umm it gives me just about as much joy as you do. So she was ok with it

Life is good

Shawn

Welcome & great pics

Just curious which Yokohamas you have & how you like them. I am gonna ditch my runcraps in a few months & I am torn between Goodyear Eagles & Yokohamas. I used to have Yoko low profile tires on a Honda CRX I had years ago & they were great (plus they are a hec of a lot cheaper than the Goodyears )

They are the AVS ES100 2nd set Great tires.
The first set lasted about 20,000miles the way i drive.
The runcraps that came on it only lasted around 16,000

sorry to hear about the incident.

I have always wondered how many MINI owners are bike riders (motorcycle that is).....
