Great weekend

Just had an awesome 3 day weekend, downhill biking all day Friday with an uplift, at Antur Stiniog in North Wales with a great bunch of mates.
And today I had a great ride out to the Back Street Hero's custom show at Doington Race circuit. 2 hrs there and back through the peaks in some lovely weather, wearing my old leather and jeans, not a waterproof textile (that I seem to have to have to wear to and from work all week) in sight glorious, although I did have a numb bum by the time I got home. Think the foam in my 1200 bandit seat is past its best at 13 years old.

The show was OK but not worth the £14 entry I felt. I know these things dont put themselves together but still I felt it was a bit steep.

Anyway, here's some pics.

The latest incarnation of Chris Ireland's Indian that was on the BBC documentary "Speed dreams" (its on youtube go watch it if you haven't seen it) the only thing that's off the original bike is the engine which has now been supercharged. He's taking it back out to Bonneville in 2014.

Destiny cycles, pure art.
