Thank you America!Thank you on two accounts.First, thanks to the US magazine who wanted to use several of my pictures for ‘free, true but with, possibly, credits’.It gave me some time credits (that’s real credits) to give a go at my handle bars.Secondly, thank you to Walnut in Oregon who sent my sew-on leather bar wraps so quickly.I sew them on myself, which was fairly easy. I did a too big knot and it shows a bit, but apart from that I love the feeling of it.Now to open a bottle of wine and use the cork as bar ends…
