Hail form Troutdale Or. (or at least expecting rain)

Hello, I'm a newbie supreme or supreme newbie rather. I'm no Road Master even though that's what it says on the head stock of my bike. Been riding for about 35 years and hope to continue for the next 35.

I like to fancy myself as a small time inventor but I'm probably more of tinkerer (if that is even a word).

I'm very new to posting, bloging and spining threads (inficise on the "very new") so if my stuff doese't show up where it's suppose to be kind enough to pick me up, dust me off and point me in the right direction.

best

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Well, I used to get to Troutdale from time to time....the Burn's Brothers there was my West Oregon address, actually.

Nice,

That is just down the hill. I live behind the Edgefield manor with a nice view of Washougal. I love this area.

What would you figure is the best way to get feedback on my new Rainfish umbrella prototype? I'm near completion of this and have just started to seek some public reaction. I need some simple avenues because I'm still very new to this posting and bloging stuff.

I reciently posted some video on http://www.youtube.com/user/TheRainfish

Welcome from the most temperate climate in the CONUS, you'll figure it out, it's kinda like tinkering.

Thanks Srg.

I did some work up at the local VA recently and my contact up there rides a catrike to and from. He is working on some bike accessories aimed at improving user frienlyness (if that is even a word) for use by disabled vets. I hope to work with him in the future on what I have designed to accomodate his bike, intended for users with disabilities.

Thank you for your service.

Oops, going to have to tinker with it a bit I guess
