Viking Biker wrote:Hi all. My name is Todd. I met Mike a few years ago. Actually, I met him online back around 1999 or so, and we met in person around 2002 or 2003? Man, where do the years go? Anyway, it's my fault that we didn't keep in touch. I had some personal issues the last few years, but have overcome them and have been able to stabilize my life.

I bought a new motorcycle back in 2003. It's a Suzuki Volusia. It was silver and white. Not anymore. It's now purple and gold. I had it painted over the summer by a friend down in Des Moines (Ed Head Graphics and custom painting). The result? Well, I bumped into a guy that knew a guy with the Vikings, and I now own the official motorcycle of the Minnesota Vikings. It was like winning the lottery. Last week's game against the Eagles was the first game for the bike. Ragnar rode it out of the tunnel onto the field, and I was on the field watching it all. I get on field credentials for all the home games, which is the sweetest thing I could ever dream of. Before the game, I was standing in the player tunnel next to the bike, and all the players are walking right past me. You should have seen AP. He looked at the bike, then looked at my buddy, then looked at the bike again. Incredible.

It's great to be here. I hope I can meet most of you. I'm going to see Mike this weekend for the first time in a few years. I can't wait!

Todd

Well, don't you suck :)

Just kidding. Congratulations on the good luck, etc. Do you have a pic of the bike?

I noticed the different bike last week but had no idea it belonged to Todd.

Hi everyone. Life long Vikes fan. Now living in China, still watch all the games (although the games are normally on from 2-5am). It's nice to meet some like minded souls on the web! Now I have something to do when I'm bored at work!

I'm sorry, but there can be only one Cliff. I'm going to need you to discard your name immediately.

Seriously though, welcome to the board. How's life in Beaverton?

Hey whats up? I'm a Redskins fan and a member of Extremeskins. My whole family are Vikings fans except for me. I still root for the Vikings unless they're playing the Skins so I guess the Vikings are my 2nd fav team if there is such a thing.

btw- good game against the Skins. I was worried in the 2nd half that the Vikings would come back untill Portis scored the TD. I think the Vikings will be a good team again soon. The Redskins offense was really horrible until we got Santana Moss to help open things up for Portis. Ever since then the offense has been a LOT better and I think the Vikings just need a better passing attack to help Adrian. Maybe some better Corners on defense too, I haven't seen the Skins WRs get so open all year..

Hi there. I'm a new member from British Columbia Canada. I'm on a couple of other boards on the Web, but have visited KansasViking many times over the past year or two...sooo I thought I'd give this board a try as well. I don't know if that's good etiquette or not, belonging to more than one board, but here I am for better or worse -- so you are stuck with me. 8)
I'm a lifelong Viking fan from way back to the days of Bud and Fran and look forward to chatting it up with y'all in the near future.

Oh yeah, and my stepson is in the U.S. infantry and I'll be visiting him in Georgia next month -- first time to see his base so I'm pretty excited.

skol Vikes!

:welcome to the board. The Vikes may add another OU player in this years draft so you should be right at home here. Nothing like a few Big 12 boys on the team. :)

Wow, just realized this was here and now I feel rude.
My name is Mark and I have been transplanted into the enemy zone of Milwaukee, WI from the likes of SoCal and AZ.
Been watching this board for a while and thought what the heck might as well join up. This is BY FAR the best site for Vikes news and I greatly appreciate all your insight (well except for those few pack and bear fans)
I bid hello to all :D

To you too Chap. Believe me, it's not easy livin in the land of cheese balls. Although I do love sportin my #44 jersey up in Lambeau every year, of course it would be nice to walk away with a win. Last year was not good as you can imagine!!

My name is Larry, when I was 8 years old I turned on the television on a cold winter day and a football game was about to start. My parents were baseball fans and never watched football so I had no family influence. Anyway, the game on television was called the Superbowl and it features the Vikings and the Raiders. For some reason I decided to root for the Vikes and it became an obsession for the rest of my life. I attend the game in Detroit every year but have not been to the dome to see a game since 2005 when I attend the Steelers trashing our Vikes on the way to a Superbowl victory a few months later. Anyway I am glad to be here and I am always hopeful this time of year.

P.S. My screen name is the one I use at ShelbyForums.com where I am a moderator. I always use the same screen name everywhere I post in case someone I know is over here.

WOW! Talk about an influx of new blood to The Kansas Viking board! Kudos to you Mike! And a fan all the way from China to boot?
A big hearty :welcome to you all! Hope you enjoy your time here, Mike has made this place worth coming back too, time and time again!!

It's great knowing some old timers have joined as well! We at least have that much in common! Check out my thread which is a tribute to the 1969 Vikings! Some of you mentioned you started watching the Vikings while living in SoCal also so we have that unique bond we share! I was just a little shy of my 7th birthday back in 65 when I first learned of the Vikings and living in Riverside I know exactly how odd it was to be cheering for the Vikes! People could never understand it! LOL!!! Sometimes I don't to this day!!!

At any rate, good to see all you new members here! Don't be shy and post more than I do!!!

SKOL Vikings!!! :beerchug:
