Nice piccy's Kris - looks like you had some fun. I shall hopefully put up some pictures from the four day CMBA Falmouth Rally that I got back from yesterday. We had calm conditions & sunny weather - fabulous! :D

I'll have to correct you for fear the owner ever reads this :D ...it's a Thundercat - I'm told there's a difference :notworthy:

And he didn't go upside down on it - he has mastered the art of handling it. :perfect:
