I enjoy getting RAD, it's the crash that follows i'm not too keen on :)

Never been confident with jumps, though i like speed, steep twisty singletrack etc, the thing i found with the DH8 i have (big 8" full susser) is i love it's ability to eat anything in it's path but because the weight is heavily biased towards the rear it launches you into the air no matter what :lol:

Be great if there was a RAD masterclass for old farts :lol:

The sight of you picking your way down that steep sketchy drop at the Sidlaws that none of the rest of us would have attempted makes you 127.5% RAD in my book Rob 8)

I've been an old fart for years and years, I don't even know what RAD is, I used to do a bit off jumping with my young son on the mountain bike track in my early thirties but have never been a youf as such.

I'm 46

In the same Sidlaws run I seem to remember you flying head first down a cliff, extracting yourself from the bottom, climbing back to the top and roaring with satisfaction jimi, i reckon that makes you equally RAD :lol:

The roar was a glad to be still alive type of roar though :oops:

Only when I drink. I have practically given up riding motorbikes now, I am so soft. :)
