Here is my list of names. Pick the one you like the best and let's run with it. Make it official right now.

1. Agua Strasse
2. Wassa Boxer (pron: Vass-ah Box-ah)
3. Golanda Wassa
4. Das Steam Vagon
5. Das Veener Sliden
6. Slicken-Zee-Dickens


OK, the last two are the anglo names I use for Vaseline, but it doesn't mean I can't use it for the bike too.

Thanks. Joey
I don't know, but the thought of it getting gummed up with mud, malfunctioning and needing replacement scares me! What will THAT cost!?
