    Hi Guys & Gals,

    My name is Chopper Dave, native of Washington State (not the other one that causes all problems) I live in the Yakima Valley and am into anything motorized...Hot Rods, Harleys, airplanes, boats, trucks, and yes now even Bicycles. Got a Cadillac Fleetwood Bike with the NuVinci hub and installed a Zoombikes engine kit with a SBP shift kit. I will post some pics once I get privileges...Then I promise to quit lurking and start typing.

    sounds nice! I grew up in the Spokane side, but gave up on the snow and moved to Hawaii.

    Hi Ed, yeah I know what you mean about the weather, I was born and raised on the wet side and moved to So-Cal for the motorcycle weather for about twenty, finally found the Yakima Valley to be the best of the lot, not too much of any one condition rain, snow, heat or wind all seem fairly moderate.

    Chopper Dave!!! Yakima is best during hop harvest season. Gotta love the smell.

    How the heck are you? I hope Loafer Jim got ahold of you the other night. I was neck deep in Aussie/Canada/Vietnam/Israel/England/Chile/Japanese orders. Sorry about that.

    Sweet. Today I'm installing the new wireless network....I guess that's why there is "work" in the word.....

    I used to live in Grants Pass when the hop fields were still there. Sometimes the aroma was so strong....I'm not sure there is any legal smell quite like it.
