    Outstanding. Thanks!

    @5:30 - I want to go there.

    What a well-done video. Love their spirit of adventure.

    And, could Brompton conjure up a better testimonial for their bike?

    I love watching these bike tour videos. I hope to tour Shetland in the future but there's so much yet to see on the mainland. Looking forward to spring when I plan on touring Skye and Lewis by bike this time. Also hope to make it over to Aberdeen.
    I plan on living forever... so far so good.
