I'm curious, and probably most of us are. Aside from motorbikes, what other interests or hobbies do you spend time on?
  • Almost 4 decades in system / integration testing in various industrial technologies
  • A non-trivial amount of time spent in CAD (schematic capture, PCB design, 3D model sketches) electronic fabrication
  • used to do long distance cycling (road bicycle) through da mountains
  • A little home furniture making
  • some other distractions

Well I play in orthopedics for a living but almost retired now. A few other hobbies, still wrench on cars and such, learning to play with the Mig and Tig..machines, play with professional fireworks in summer, used to scuba dive , still hunt and fish when my body allows it , I am in my sixties. But i do spend a lot of spare time now building an experimental airplane.

Scotland is a fabulous vacation destination! We went in 2015 for 10 days (rented a car in Edinburgh and drove 1,000 miles through the Highlands and departed from Glasgow. Wondered around on our own and visited places as we came across them. Loved every minute!
