Wow! Wow wow wow.

Thanks Kap'n!

Fantastic vid....beautifully shot, great guy and superb story. 

As a teen, this is the direction I was heading in, under the influence of my old man. Was going to study Industrial Design. For a range of complex reasons it did not eventuate. 

But life is long they say. But its all too bloody short too!

I had a friend in primary school who would draw cars and hot rods...all day, every day. Black and white at first then he started using colours. Amazing stuff.

I wonder what he ended up doing for a job.

Talented people annoy me. At 56 I can't draw for crap and can't even click my fingers in time to music. Embarassed

But I can cook bacon!   cheers

Mmmmm bacon.

I hated maths and accounts, but spent the next 26 years doing just that.
The last 4 years fiddling with these bikes has been the most rewarding thing I've done. Wish I'd been a mechanic.
And at 62 I can nod my head and click my fingers to jazz and blues, finally. Must be the beard.

I have 2 trades, an electronics tech and fitter but my biggest passion in life is to play a violin well. Big things considering I cant carry a tune in a bucket and tone deaf. I can usually get a good tune from a blown nitro engine.

Yeah. Bacon makes it better. Laughing


I think a lot of us have some sort of talent, whether its cooking bacon or blowing up a nitro engine Very Happy . Most of us just haven't learnt how to get it out. Its weird where life takes you, but as the line in Desiderata goes...
'No doubt the universe is unfolding as it should'

I couldn't help noticing the religious icons that appeared in the video. Mainly Hindu. Probably some sort of influence there.
