New member from Cape Cod Ma., and Fort Myers Fl.

Hello. I'm Bill I'm a professional musician (bass, and vocals). I live on Cape Cod Ma. most of the year, and Fort Myers Fl. for four months. On the Cape I ride mostly bike paths, and the Cape Cod Canal, plus some of the safer neigborhoods in my area. In Fort Myers I'm all over the place.Fort Myers Bch., Sanibel, downtown Fort Myers etc.I currently have an Iron Horse Adventure hybrid, and an old Favorit road bike (Czeck made). The Iron Horse is great for Fl. (bullet-proof), and I'll be looking for a new road bike soon. I've kept the Favorit running for a long time, but it's getting tired. Anyway it's good to be a part of this forum. I'm sure I'll enjoy it.
Bill

Hello Bill, before you hang up the Favorit for good, take some photos and share with us in the Classic & Vintage forum, please?

Check out the regional forums, too.

Welcome to BF!

I think I have some shots of the favorit right before I changed the handlebars, and tape I'll try to pull them up shortly. It's not a pretty thing, but rides real nice. It gets new derailers when I get home.
Yes, If you can play through a circle of fifths after drinking one, or identify, and play notes beyond the root,third, and fifth, then bass players too,can call themselves musicians...But only in a pinch.

We'll look forward to seeing the Favorit.

If you can still play bass after drinking a fifth--then you're a pro !

We're working on the photo thang! Could take a day, or so. Playing bass after a fifth of Jack is way easier than doing the computer thing. Hopefully we'll get it. It won't be pretty though. (I could NOT look away). 00

Hope to see you on the Cape Cod Paths in July when I'm there, Bill. Where on the Cape are you?
