RE: I do like a nice Red Bull short

This is my fav Red Bull video, bikes unfortunately, but has the immensely talented Danny MacAskill doing improbable things...

Still wouldn't make me drink Red Bull though!

Splendid!

Dunno why, but always assumed Danny MacAskill was an American - wish I had his bike, and talent, when I lived in Edinburgh.

I love one of the comments under that video:

"I am glad my Redbull addiction pays for these ridiculous stunts."

Looks like it was based on Brooklands in 1908 http://www.bankingonbrooklands.org.uk/

I walked around that part of the banking last week, in technicolour of course.

BTW, anyone notice the blue Triumph Herald 13/60 in the garage?

Yes. Owned one, too embarassed  And in the same colour.

Also had a mkII Vitesse - great noise, was swift(ish) on the straights, but brakes couldn't cope...  shocked

Owned a mkIII Spitfire, too. Had the test drive on a hot, sunny day, with the hood down. Bought it on the spot  cool

But then it rained, and when I put the hood up, I realised my natural eyeline was actually 3in higher than the top of the windscreen...  doh!

The Danny MacAskill video is ridiculous. I don't think it tells the full story judging by the state of his arms when he drinks the red bull around minute 4!
