After Timmy's post on considering a new bike I thought it would be a good idea to start a "Show Your Ride" topic rather than hijack Timmy's topic.
So here is mine and me. Not the best shot of the bike. It's a 2000 GT Avalanche, XT drive train with LX braking. No disc's :cry: . Z2 Bombers and Rhino lites. I've outgrown it and would love to upgrade but my next bike is waaay out of budget for me. $3400.00 CDN for the Specialized Epic. :cry: :cry: :cry:

Here's a couple of pics I found on the 'net...
It is an M reg Volvo 440...In the UK they use regs or registrations to tell the year. In this case, the licence plate is M812 MPR making it an M reg. The older ones would have been like MPR 812M. The latter is also known as the first time thru or around. The newest regs I have seen are 04, and other than running out of letters in 2001, the 01/51 (2nd half of 2001) reg, I can't imagine why they went this way. They went in 2002 to 02/52; 2003 was 03/53 and so on. There are some letters that are not used/special designation. Letters I, O, S, U, V, Z, I have not seen. The letter Q is reserved for kit cars. Here are a few pics:

These are the British oblong plates I amy have mentioned to the people on the other sied of the Atlantic.

Maybe, but when I test rode the Epic it was soooooo sweet. By the time I'm able to afford it there will likely be a new desire for me to drool over anyway.
The way things are right now it seems the way for me to go is to build one a bit at a time. Then I won't have to drop a few g's all at once. I know it's the more expensive way to go but I guess that's the trade off for getting exactly what you want.

Conk,
Take a VT 1 out for a test ride. I believe they are available up at Whistler Bike Rentals for demo rides.

Hmmmm. I've done Sun Peaks but Whistler has always been in the plans. I go to Squamish lots, so I'll have to check it out. I know what's going to happen too. I'll ride one then end up hating my GT.

I'd love to try that tandem on a Burnaby moutain downhill. That's where the photo of me was taken. I know it's not meant for it but hey, That's why they call me Mad Dog. Some even call me Crash Dog. 8)
