    Don't try this at home folks!

    On my last visit to Wales, I forgot to put any of my folders into my car!
    So I borrowed my daughter's Brompton, I then went for a ride up & down the Taff Trail with my sons Sion & Jac (on downhill special & MTB)
    They decided to take on a jump circuit just off the trail and shouted come on Dad!
    When I joined them, they said "We were only joking! Don't do it! It will fold up on you!"
    I laughed and tried the first jump.................................................................
    on the way up the bars came loose and pivoted forward & down, I fell in a very ingracious heap, forcing my car key (in my pocket) into the top of my thigh, OUCH! Oh! How we laughed! Oh! How I limped for the next few days!
    Doh!

    Probably would have made it no problem on the GoBike

    I have used my Curve on a Bmx track a few times. I dont tend to anymore as it think it may stain the hinge,but it handled very well. I have also done a few trials tricks on it. Now I own a full sized trial bike if I want to be silly or I use my Onza mini in the car.

    Luckily, my son was too busy laughing to get his phone out, And my camera was in the (loaded) brommie bag on the front (double DOH!)
    It makes a change, these days, if you stack your bike, expect help to come after the phone pic, or u-tube video!
