I am finding it difficult to relate to that.

Not really sure what to say to someone who doesnt obey gravity.

Not really OBT we know but he's got a new one out - more mind-boggling, off-the-wall moves.

You can't take it all in in one go - I can only conclude he's made some sort of pact with the devil ;-)

Actually it's Red Bull as you might expect, but at least he wears it lighter than most.

Brilliant....

about four weeks ago on the plane back from Orlando, having taken the grandchildren to Disney seeing a fella reading MBUK I got chatting to him and he told me about Danny.Until looking through the threads I had forgotten about him so finding this was brilliant.What a bike rider he needs to now progress to bikes with an engine because it maybe more lucrative for him.

More in the same vein...

No overlanding content, but quite a lot of 'landing'.
