Damn you Sam........ I was just inspecting the sills on the volvo...pre mot check - honest Strangely enough i don't consider alcohol to be a contributory factor in the slightest - although others may beg to differ but seeing as pedestrians walked into the unfinished street furniture in broad daylight and injured themselves just makes me glad that i was under the influence when i face planted as the pain was dulled by the best part of a bottle of Ardbeg?...or was it Jura?...perhaps it was the Balvennie?...or the Highland park?.......Ah-hah... it could've been the Laphroig that pushed me over the edge...so many bottles...in so few days
Yeah i'm glad i didn't go the S&S coupling route, they are a fantastic bit of kit to hold and fondle, so well machined that you instantly feel the "need" for them but they would have spoiled the lines of the soulcraft tubing and to be honest i'm never gonna ride abroad so what's the point in having a bike that comes apart to fit in a suitcase? - if i want a folding bike i'll just close my eyes, fill up on whisky and hit something at speed......anyway, after riding Galloway for 25yrs+ i'm still finding new trails n' paths to amuse myself on.
Cheers Chips, i may take you up on that offer, i've messaged Sean but i realise he's always tucked up in his workshop so if i don't hear back i'll be in touch before easter, So you've still got your Soulcraft?.......your frame/bike back in issue 4(?) was the deciding factor for me - soon as i saw it i was sold on one......"yep, that looks right - i'm having one" - best frame/complete bike i've ever owned, and to think i almost bought an Airborne instead . Despite having my Cove Hummer, Kinesis Tripster ATR, Salsa Juan Solo etc i am so looking forward to getting my old Soulcraft back up n' running again.....my old faithful friend has been ill and out've action for 7 long years - gaw'd i missed it
Can't be that many Soulcraft's in the UK?, perhaps a weirdy beardy whisky fuelled meet n' greet sometime.
