    A Happy New Year to all:

    I have been into Oakley sunglasses since 1988 but only recently joined the forum and I have been impressed by some of the members' collection. Especially X-Metal's and Nortika's.

    I got into Oakleys as a result of taking up cycling and watching Greg Lemond win the Tour de France 3 times and also the cycling World Road Racing Championships twice. Who can forget the 1989 TDF and that 8 second victory over Laurent Fignon at the final 24.5km time trial???

    My oakley collection consists of Radars, RadarLocks, Magnesium M Frame, 1st gen FrogSkin and Juliets. I am in the process of acquiring the X Squared in Ruby. I sold my entire collection of M Frames except for one, a 1st gen Blue Iridium Sweep lens with a 2nd gen Metallic Blue M Frame with white Earsocks.

    I had a Romeo R1 X Metal with Black Iridium, just like what Tom Cruise wore in Mi-2 and I was stupid enough to sell it off for only AU$250 few years back. Not learning from that lesson, 2 years ago I sold off my pristine X Metal Penny Ruby for what I thought was a great price of AU$425. HUGE REGRETS NOW!!!

    Hopefully over the next few years I can hunt down a Romeo R1 and Ruby Penny for not too ridiculous prices while getting to know some of the great folks here on OakleyForum.com
