Bikes - The other passion

For as long as I can remember I've been fascinated with bikes. It's something about their simplicity. Two circles and a triangle. It's an elegant composition.

Down Hill, Dirt, Trail, Racer, BMX, Cross Country or whatever. If it remotely looks like a bike I'm naturally drawn to it. The attraction goes beyond man powered bikes as well. I grew up on the backseat of my father's various motorcycles as we drove through the woods of Tiveden. I fondly remember one time with the Panther, a demanding bike with a kickback that could break a grown mans leg, the headlight died on us and we had to drive home in the middle of the night with only the moon to guide us.

4 years ago I made a bad call. I moved overseas and left my bike at home. It has been haunting me ever since. But now finally, my LeToy is back with me again.

Art of my father

One of the most amazing and interesting persons I know is my father. He has taught me so much about life and how to make the most out of it. He is an extremly talented jack-of-all-trades and artisan. His specialities are wood sculpture and bronze casting.
I helped him set up a blog/project journal/gallery similar to my own.
