A whole weekend’s worth of planning was marred by indecision on my part, but all in the presence of a good mate from England. I got a taste of what my Chinese guide will be going through when I sat in the chair while Steve learned how to ride it. That’s an experience I’d recommend to no-one! A great weekend all the same though, and I’m more confident in the ability of the COD now it’s been on one of Don’s Detours. I still haven’t found a name for the bike, but I’m using COD (the Chair Of Despair) until something finally gels.
