Having been riding a 1995 DB since almost new I finally got a new bike today, at 42 yrs old I have to say i'm like a kid at christmas.

Apologies if it's bad form to just post about my new bike but i'm so excited I wanted to share it with the world(or at least a world that knows what i'm talking about)

It's so different from what i'm used to,feel like i'm going to have to learn to ride all over again in certain ways, but it's so much better

I only had an hour of daylight after work tonight but it was a fun hour, very muddy with heavy rain in Scotland today. Can't wait for tomorrow, might get 2 hours :D

That's the beauty of mountain bikes; it makes 42 year olds act like little kids at Christmas. :)

Congrats. It looks like a beauty.

I read that whole thing, then got to the Scotland thing. I had to go back and read it over again in the accent and it made it so much more awesome!!

Nice bike BTW, I love that new bike feel and smell!

Cheers foIks,I thought you'd understand :thumbsup:

Got an hour or so daylight again tonight , pushed it a little more, it really is awesome, I can't wait to take it to Glentress Forest.

BTW it's a Glaswegian accent, don't want anyone reading me with some weird east coast/Edinburgh accent :D

Nice bike. But you DO realize you're going to have to change your sig now, right?
