Music...

I'll be able to play my own music for my videos...

I've just bought a banjo!


Never had a musical instrument before, so maybe a while before I can do my own sound tracks!

I do listen...

My foot pegs on the buggy have required frequent and regular reapplication of the grip tape...

After listening to the advice given to me on Extreme Kites, today I took a trip to the tip and came home with a mountain bike wheel and tyre - 



After removing the tyre and cutting it down I now have some rubber grips on my foot pegs - 



And plenty of spare to replace it in the future -

Peter Lynn comp xr+ modifications...

I have modified my comp xr+ with the gigastrong axle and had the side rails extended, following some inspiration on Extreme Kites, home brewed kite buggies, from Andy666.

I'm now thinking of further modifying my buggy by getting somebody to build me a swan-neck down tube and adding a buggy bags sport class seat.

Some pictures of Andy666's buggy...

Pictures - Ozone R1 7m in the kite buggy

Some more pictures from Lake Lefroy and the Ozone R1 7m in the kite buggy, taken by Jhn.Holgate.

The last three are all taken from the same spot and show the water encroaching over the lake once the wind changed direction!

Backwards...

Well it looks like for the last four years I have been buggying backwards!

It was pointed out to me on Extreme Kites that my foot pegs are pointing the wrong way...

"Nice photos, but for some reason (perhaps optical illusion) those foot pegs on your buggy look like they're on backwards..."

After a bit of discussion it appears I may have put the front fork on the wrong way and that's why the foot-pegs are wrong!

I flipped them around today...
