Whoo, whoo. I got the little video to work at least on my site. I tried to do one at the HU meeting but I think it is going to be a bit big but lets try it anyway.

Lost boy living in London

Wednesday, June 28th, 2006

I was telling my flatmate James (who biked around South America for a couple of years) about the great bike that I found on the HUBB and he said that $8000US was much too expensive and I could get a brand new bike for that. And not to get hung up on a BMW F650. […]
