Hey man.... why are you selling your P3? Nice pics on ebay by the way. 17 bids is a good start! Good luck on it... just curious, did it really help out in your split times? thanks

Hadn't even mentioned it here.

I'm getting out of competition. Can't see having a $5,000 bike just hanging in the garage collecting dust.

Yes, I probably should keep it for when I get back into things later. But, my personality is such that if I have it, I will want to use it. It's sort of like an alcoholic getting rid of all the booze in the house. Must remove temptation.

Doug, based on what you have posted here, you could have nothing more than a unicycle hanging around and you would compete on it! I think you are doing a wise thing by selling the P3 now, because by the time you get back into competing (in a year or two when Luke becomes your greatest fan?) like you were doing in the past who knows what kind of new technology will have come into play.

How was Luke's first Christmas? Sean barely played with his new toys, but really did not get into opening gifts or anything. It took him about a 3-5 days after Christmas before he began playing a lot with them. I think he had to get used to them being around first.

Not a sure thing, but it reduces the temptation. It's all an odds game.

Luke was fun; here are some photos: http://www.midcalracing.com/luke/luke1202.htm#Christmas

Of course, he like the ribbons and boxes as much as the gifts. I really likes riding in this little bitty old fashioned wagon we got.

Got any photos?

I upload photos about every week to the family website to keep the relatives, all live out-of-state, updated on his growth. http://www.teamwhatley.com/baby

Luke is cracking me up...what a great personality.
