Howdy from a folding nut!

Greetings, everyone!

I'm a self-proclaimed folding nut, certified bike mechanic (yes, there is such a thing) and occasional bike flipper.

I have at least six "serious" folding bikes in my stable: four Bike Fridays (two Pocket Rockets, one New World Tourist & one Air Glide); a Dahon Speed Pro TT, and a new Brompton M3L just purchased last week.

I left a lucrative job as a medical auditor at the tender age of one-half century...realizing I wouldn't find my bliss there. So now I flip the occasional bike for some pocket change, and eagerly await whatever's out there for me. I put away enough money in the auditing years to sustain me and the missus through the next chapter of my life.

A year before I left the auditor job, I became a certified wrench at Winterborne in Guelph, Ontario. Great learning experience, heartily recommended. Say hi to Alan and Jay if you stop by.

I believe in shorter intros, so I'll leave it at that.

Thanks for reading!

Cheers Don, welcome to Bike Forums. Nice stable you have there!

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
