Feeling lucky and loved right about now…
So I was 40 in the summer and although the psychological hurdle I expected to accompany this birthday never really came an outpouring of kindness and generosity from family and friends most certainly did.
Yesterday I travelled to darkest West Lothian to visit the factory where the frame my wife unbelievably bought me is being built. Excited doesn’t really cover it, but I’ll need to be patient!
And today I’m heading to Innerleithen for one on one coaching with Dirt School courtesy of a voucher some good pals got me as a birthday gift.
So 2 days in November and 2 great reminders how lucky I am to have great mates and a loving family who understand and tolerate my obsession with these here new fangled dandy horses!
Much love to the universe on this fine Friday.Posted 4 years ago
Well. Yesterday’s coaching was great. Obviously I’ve doing everything wrong for 10 years and somehow getting sway with it….but seemed to be able to grasp what he was showing me Nd hopefully now I can unlearn all my habits and become a riding GOD!
Regarding the frame it is a Shand and was cool to see around their factory, various frames in different stages of completion hanging around….and the guys were very accommodating towards me and my family…
Scandal42 – my wife did start out trying to sort all this as a surprise but quickly realised that if she was going spend a Klondike on something special she would be better off getting me to choose rather than get it all badly wrong!
And although my actual 40th was in August, I’ll put your suggestions to her Lucien!Posted 4 years agoRorschachMember

And now I can actually justify owning 9 bikes 😀user-removedMember
My biology teacher was known as Jones the Oracle due to his never ending stream of useless trivia. One of the many gems he enriched my life with was, “Radiators should be black – look at Africans!”…
Looks like a lovely bike but not sure about the brown and red. How about green tape and saddle?Posted 3 years ago
Other than change the colour.. No. Unless I change brakes later on but they’re there for the foreseeable. White antlers!
Btw suffered it’s first crash this morning, 9 month old pulled it over on top of herself. Resulting in a sort of diagonal Adam Ant bruise stripe across her lovely wee face. Bike is unscathed however.Posted 3 years ago
