Interests

ATV
Due to my handicap I cannot ride a normal motorbike, so in 2009 I decided to buy an ATV. My first one was a Yamaha Grizzly 550 EPS, but this was crashed by an accident in June 2013. The new one I bought after that is a Can-Am Outlander 500 DPS.
Tabletop
With a friend I play Warhammer, a miniature tabletop wargame. We spend hours with assembling miniatures, painting and playing, and I must confess that I am not the best player yet! So I need more practise ...
