    * real name, if you like
    Mike

    * explanation of your handle
    Occasionally active on a golf site and my drives often end up in the trees, hence: treebound.

    * explanation of your avatar
    Will vary somewhat often until I find one I like. In fact I think I'll go change it now just for fun.

    * age (general or specific)
    Late 40's chronologically, 20-80 physically depending on how I feel and what I've been up to, 12-110 mentally because if you don't live you die.

    * occupation
    In transition. Currently in a dead-end career and currently two classes short of graduating from the Univerisity, but taking the semester off to get back in the saddle and take care of set aside things.

    * favorite bike
    Colnago Master Light. Always wanted one my whole life. Finally got one thanks to a LBS super deal on a trade-show setup bike that he previously got a deal on and passed on to me. And perhaps he got tired of me druling all over the floor in front of where he had it hanging in his shop. I've got a small collection of other bikes as well, but the ML is my favorite.

    * what's in your stable?
    Do you want the short list, or the list complete with broken/removed bits as well? ;)
    Currently around 6-8 adult bikes including one tandem, and a couple of kids bikes I'm fixing up for my wife's grandkids for when they come to visit.

    * fastest speed on a road bike? where? when?
    Hit 50mph once in my pre-teen years on an old Firestone single speed 26" tired cruiser when my friends all had Stingrays. The speedometer hit 50mph on a short downhill road, and speedos never lie (do they?).
    Since then, in my adult years, when the speed gets that fast I pay more attention to the road than the speed.

    * how many miles ON THE ROAD on a road bike last year?
    Twenty years ago it was in the thousands, ten years ago it was still in the thousands. Last year less than 100. This year it should be back in the thousands.

    * image of yourself or your ride?
    Huh? Do you mean a mental image, or do you mean to post a pic?

    * make up and answer at least one additional question.
    If you could have one major fully financed and supported ride of a lifetime what would it be?
    Start from where ever I am at the time, train for a year to get ready, then set out on a bike and pedal from here to the east coast, ride up north along the coast and travel to Newfoundland. Hop on a boat or an airplane and then ride across Greenland and Iceland. Get another hop to western Ireland and pedal across Ireland, then across to and ride around Scotland, Wales, and the whole of the English countryside. Then hop across the water and ride around in Norway, Sweeden, Finland, Belgium, Germany, Austria, France, Spain, (enter all european countries here as well as some more eastern ones), ride over all the passes into and around Switzerland, ride around Italy, Greece, Hungary, and make my way to outer Mongolia and ride across that. Hop a boat to Japan and ride around Okinawa and then around Japan. Then hop another boat up to Siberia and ride there for a bit until I got too cold. Hop another boat over to Alaska and ride around in Alaska and south from there into Canada. Criss-cross over the Canadian Rockies a few times. Then head into the lower 48 states. Ride the Pacific Coast all the way from Bellingham to SanDiego, being sure to ride around the Olympic Pennisula on the way, and riding on as many of the San Juan Islands as I could while in Washington. Once in SanDiego head to Colorado and ride around the Rockies and north across Wyoming and up to South Dakota. Ride past that Senator's house who killed the biker with his car and got off with a functional slap on the wrist and deposit the bag of dog crap I've been carrying with me on the whole trip onto the top of his car's muffler so the stench will stay with him for as long as he drives and owns that car. Then ride through Iowa, possibly joinging the RAGBRAI circus for a bit. Then up north along the Mississippi all the way to Duluth, then across northern Wisconsin and then south to home just north of Milwaukee.

    * and, something fun.
    Win the Tour de France just once in my life. And to do that after I turn 50 as an independant unattached rider with little to no support would be a dream feat all in itself. But I'll keep it as my dream because it's fun to imagine and it keeps me in good spirits while on long rides.

    Is this the sort of thing you were looking for?
