    My name's Van. I live in Alaska and ride most days when It doesn't rain. Right now I've got a 43cc friction drive on my Trek 830.

    I have friends in AK. Welcome. I would like to visit your state one of these days, but I don't do so good with cold so it will have to be in summer.

    I'll try to get around to taking some pictures for you all. I have lots of pics of eagles, otters, sea lions, and of course scenery (we stock it). But it's tough to get pics with the bike. I'd have to stop and get off it.

    I've had a couple of people ask, "What the heck is that avatar a picture of?" Or words to that effect. So I thought I'd show you. I think that it is appropriate in this area, since they are mostly pictures of me, and may give you an idea of what kind of (warped?) individual yer dealin with.:grin:

    That's the Junk Yard in the background. ACME (As in the Roadrunner cartoons).

    Hey, Van...

    I read in your Tadpole build thread that you live in a remote area outside of civilization and one that's dependent on ferries and bush planes. I'm curious... What kind of internet connection do you have? Is a 56K telephone modem or other connection?

    I ask because our association with you way up there via MB.c and our combined interest in motorized bicycles is yet another plus of the internet.

    Love the mushroom pic! LOL. That's a big'un.
