Re: What have forum members been up to?

Some great bikes in that post... I wish my arm was OK to go for a ride out..for me a quiet weekend, a little bit of one handed sanding work on a rib, a chip butty with some very, very, good people, a good chat about using workshop tools, guitars and music with the next generation, a few beers after ...
