Great editing, Stephen Spielberg!!  Welsh scenery making me homesick - but a better looking sky in OZ!  Gron.

The colours of late Autmn, and the special lighting effect of this time of year, was stunning on the Rhossili video, Wattsy!

If ever there was an advert to inspire people to take up PMing, it would be one of your videos, Wattsy. Great stuff. Perhaps we could get you to give a 'PM'ing for dummies' talk on club night......and the following month one on making trendy videos :like

Hope to get out paramotoring with you soon - after I get a trip to the Olympics, and then to the National Eisteddfod of Wales out of the way first!

Hopefully not a trip to London on your paramotor Gron or you may be dodging some ground to air missiles LOL!!

Well, - judging by that photo of Phil Thomas (scroll down) .............. it looks as if he's been participating in that extreme sport ..............................Budgie Jumping!!    OR    even possibly , the other exreme sport of  ....................Parrot-shooting!!!
(Sorry folks - feeling silly tonight!!, - must be my frustration at not getting airborne today - while taxying out in G-LEEK, the yellow peril, I discovered that my left toe-brake was not working, and so it was back to the hangar for me  :'( ! ..........  should have gone to Rhossili!)
Wattsy - pity about the bike ...................... BUT now you have a Ducati that can fly !!!  ;D  - much better!!

Hmmm, perhaps I do need to rethink my profile pic....

13 Kms more than I, Wattsy. Thanks helping me lift my GS to the upright position at HS. Can't believe I drove 10,000 miles around Oz without a hitch and managed to drop it at HS  ;D . BTW the bike weighs 1/4 ton ! plus the 25Kgs PG, which, because it was stacked high-up on the back, prob helped topple me over.
Well done on the XC. Been to Graig y nos from HS on many occassions. Keep the enthusiasm flowing; it rubs off on everyone ;D
