    3. I have never been to South America.

    Reclaimed my youth.

    3. earn a shit load more money while doing far less work



    1. Backflip

    2. Ride around the world

    3. Have time to ride as much as I’d like to

    #2 I plan to do in a gap year after university.

    #1 will have to wait until I’ve done #2 and #3, because I’ll probably break my neck. Need a big ramp and a lake to practice I think.

    2)Drive n Cycle across RUSSIA .

    3)Go to Iceland .

    1) A threesome of the good kind

    Premier Icon Shandy

    Ski Mont Blanc
    Finish an Iron Man

    Premier Icon Daffy

    1. Orbital Skydiving – Oh Yes!
    2. Been able to jump (on a bike of course)

    I’d trade all my bikes except the Mojo 🙂

    Premier Icon geoffj

    1. Big game fishing in the Indian ocean
    2. Setup and run my own business
    3. Design and build my own house

    All doable, some more doable than others.


    mmmm. there are several of the above that i have done, none of them involving the ladies in the photos, mind.

    had/still have own business. have designed (very adlib) and built myself a ‘house’ (more of a hut). done two of the three mentioned by TINASpoon (have driven round it though). have built my own bike (fixed gear) from scratch (inc. painting, wheel build and putting together) as well as putting other together. already lived by the alps (will retire there by the time i’m 45 but, thinking Slovinia – it’s cheaper than germany/austria).

    1) dirt jumps with silly steep kickers. have tried. last time was last week but i always bottle out at the last minute when i see this 2′ high wall of dirt in front of me.

    2) apologise to various people that i have/may have upset in my time but never had the courage/face to do so whether it be at the time or at a later date.

    3) spend more time with family, especially my parents but, alas i am not there to do so and ‘life’ gets in the way of living/doing what you want to in life. we speak often but i know my mum misses me not being there for her. dad is a little more ambiguous and we get on better since i left the UK. would really like to get down the pub and talk bolloks more often,not just when i visit.

    – first takes pratice, second takes guts and the third i still (luckily) have time resolve.

    1 Gain my pilots license

    2 Fly a Supermarine Spitfire

    3 Make it down the Fort Bill DH course in one piece

    First two are doable but I think no3 is impossible I am too fat too scared and dont bounce these days


    more please. and more offers to help dreams = reality!

    Keira, Beyonce, Shakira :o) One at a time, obviously.

    Hmmm – again apart from the things involving the young ladies I have done many of the "things I always wanted to do" above.

    Still to do.
    Climb a 20 000 ft mountain
    Design and build my own house
    Go to a cricket test match in either india or the west indies

    Now too late 🙁

    Play rugby for scotland.
    Race a motorcycle


    1. 6ft Drop Off
    2. Big Double
    3. Silly little gully drop down local woods that I have not had the guts to drop into – boo hooo – SOMEDAY IT WILL BE MINE!

    Done Fort Bill and Innerlethen but that 6ft drop eludes d.t. self preservation!

    1) partied enough
    2) ridden a proper big kahuna gap jump
    3) learnt to bunnyhop consistently and on demand

    Play rugby for scotland.

    Forgive me if im wrong here TJ, but did i not read on here once that you arent actually Scottish?

    Boz – correct – not scottish born but grew up here and lived more than half my life here. I would have qualified by residence 🙂 I played some club rugby in glasgow

    Not as Scottish as Murray then? 8)

    But more Scottish than Nathan Hines 🙂

    1: Never met a nice south african

    2: Managed the pull up Kyme's up to Cowpe low in one go

    2: Managed to stop constantly going from one relationship to the next


    1. Road ride to Monte Carlo
    2. Go to Whistler for a year
    3. Climb Everest


    in what order?


    air 10ft on a vert ramp


    1: Go to Canada and learn to ride the shore

    2:Learn to manual (it would look good on the daily commute)

    3:Do a week long epic ride for charity


    1 – Megavalanche
    2 – John O'Groats to Lands End
    3 – 24hr Race Solo, or ride in one direction until I can't ride any more (be interested to know what my limits are)

    i) Megavalanche
    ii) learn to hang-glide or if I could afford it fly a plane
    iii) see the curvature of the world from the edge of space

    1. Help find life on Mars (failed once, want another go)
    2. Learn some bike handling skills rather than just blarging downhill
    3. Most important: be a better human being


    1. Race a pairs event at Bonty 24 this year and not be so, completely wiped out that the week afterwards is not lost forever. My race partner is so much fitter and better prepared than I am.
    2. Ride Dalby's Red route in less tan 2:15
    3. Find the time to do more. Then, just maybe, I could understand my pc and the software better so I didn't get so damn frustrated with it.

    The first two I am going to have a go at this summer. The third one will elude me for all eternity .
