 Not sure if its because he is on an Orange which hasn't changed in 20 years or the music but this had a very 'Earthed' feeling to it

 I was just about to make the same comment, very Earthed vibe.

 The song is by The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and they had at least a couple of songs in Earthed 3 and 4. Pretty sure one of the segments was a bunch of guys riding Orange bikes on the isle of Skye.

Let`s shred some turf together when ever you are around.

Cheers Jojo

 Nae bad loon, nae bad. Ness trails are so sick. Shame its so far away from here! Well, its under 30 miles but have to pass other trail locations on the way. We are spoilt for sick shreddin spots just now.

 @Bitelio: I know that a few boys have been digging and making some fresh lines up near Inverness.
I will leave it up to the trailbuilders to disclose their locations.

I have been doing loads of work up Dallas on most of the trails, there is a new flow trail that has just been started up Dallas, going to fully resurrect Pluscarden soon and there has been a pile of awesome work done near Pluscarden too.

 @betsie: that's fair enough.

On another note, are you involved in the proposed new skills area at Forres? Saw the Planning Application the other day.

 @Bitelio: sure am. It's only a small group of us working with the council, local sports group, land management and the potential foresters.
Everyone has been amazing with us. Couldn't thank them enough for their patience, getting mountain bikers organised is like herding sheep in the dark. Lol.

 Possibly referring to bashing the rotten stump with the back wheel at 1.35? Not actual explosives lol.
