I like how the cooler provides easy access to adult beverages to help calm your nerves from the truly awesome cross-winds you would encounter

Not only the dog, but I would love to figure out how to easily carry a small loom and/or a spinning wheel. Of course, a couple of my small looms weigh substantially more than some the light weight bicycles around these days.

All right dear. Rev 0.1 of the design requirements document will be sent to you for review.

Start shopping for a 55 gallon drum. Aluminum or Stainless would be cool. Maybe a beer barrel?

Stop on by..I've got a spare steel 55 gal drum and a 1/2bbl keg shell.

I'd like to see what Hellsickle comes up with...

Really? A back flip off a 45 story building before you pull your chute? Would be thrilling enough for me to just jump off w/o the backflip!

Dale! As soon as I saw that trans with a bike on it I wonder if it was you. That bike has to have a million miles on it. This is Mike and you likely wouldn't remember me. We kayaked and probably skied together. I know Kay/Dean and I think that is how we met (?).. I remember some crazy tele binding you were messing with too. But maybe it was all a dream....

Now that you mention it, my Sienna is built on a Camry body.

It's just that at times, it would be oh so nice to have the bike. For instance, every other year there's a weaving convention in Durango. I would much rather ride my bike there and have it available for toodling around on that the van. Not to mention how much less gas it would use.

Then there are the local dog shows and herding lessons...it would be great to be able to buzz out to them without always having to take the van.

You're right though...it's not very practical...more of a conversation piece.

Moody fire caught early and contained. Lightening caused.

I keep thinking about buying a Ural Patrol just to be able to use the bike more. Yes, I know they have their issues. But they're 2WD with a reverse, which would be mighty handy in mud and snow. And dogs just look so cool when riding in a sidecar.

Hi Mike. The TA has about 86K on it. Still running well, but not getting the mileage or power it used to, so probably time for some work. Still strong enough to provide motorcycle support for the Pro Cycling Challenge Vail Time Trial last week. Haven't talked to Kay & Dean for a while, but I'm still boating and snowboarding when I can. Only tele some, but I might have been testing out the tele binding Bomber was making a while back.
