    Could it even be possible I've been riding CACK's cousin? I've read the riveting story of Verm and his trusty steed from the beginning. Much like the original this bike bring's a smile to all who have the privelage of gazing upon her (except the A-hole's of course.) [​IMG]Wish I wish I could include a scratch and sniff of my garage after this thing's been flogged but... Would like to thank Verm and all who have had a hand in spinning this tale of adventure. You are an inspiration to me. Oh, the paint job on this machine named the Fishing Assault Vehicle (FAV) was inspired by Wonka. Flat chocolate brown and flourescent orange. Didn't turn out as I had hoped but as shitty as it turned out I couldn't be more pleased at this point.

    Welcome Poondogger!

    I see the Cack has a new fan.

    How did you find out about the Cack & us here at ADV?

    I saw an original picture of Verm on ratbike.org. I think they had a link to his story, a mention of it or something and I got hooked. I've had the best time whiling away my life living vicariously through a ratbike.

    i tuned out for a few days and came back and there's apparently been some deleted posts and hooplah.

    i didn't know and missed it all but even if i hadabeenhere i doubt much would have offended me. ya see i ride a little red scooter to work just to keep up a steady flow of nasty looks and holier-than-thou comments - i think of it as a sort of an inoculation to being offended by what people think of me. and a few months back I got a nice booster shot by riding a real eyesore of a motorcycle through parts of Alaska, Canada, and the NW, so I'm all dosed up :D

    Don't worry about it Thomas... I was here all through it and saw nothing... I haven't got a clue what got chopped out but I suspect that GB was pretty quick on the trigger when it all went down (hill) :lol3

    I have never owned a fashionable bike in my life and I don't care what others think about what I ride, so I must have been dosed at birth :D

    All I care about is that I DO have something to ride and, I think, many here feel the same.

    How is that planning going, by the way??

    Cheers :freaky

Or did thomasclark sell it on ebay? or are you using it for a basinette? I was totally uncomfortable throughout mexico with part of my kit missing.:D You know I am old and crabby and a creature of habit.

    I'm just finishing up a great book called "Born to Run". Vermin, might the fella in that last pic be a member of the Turahumara tribe? My first time to chime in on your adventure-thanks for taking us along.
