Sometimes Manfred would like to rest on a couch and lay his legs high.
Therefore, Santa Claus had brought a parcel from the Dutch carbon ligfietsen producer M5. In the parcel was a frame rack, with which Manfred built a couch :-)
In the meantime Manfred pedaled some thousands kilometres recumbently. His experiences in riding the couch you find here: https://manfred-tinebor.fotki.com/journals/couch-surfing/
To get a little impression of riding the couch speedy, please watch the video recorded on a country road in Lower Saxony between Polle and Bad Pyrmont: https://manfred-tinebor.fotki.com/journals/manfreds-videos/entry/wqtfrbtwwtqqq/

End of the second life of the couch!

Photos from Krasnodar, Russia.
The carbon fibre frame, broken by car crash, is irreparable!

    Ouch! Judging from the photos you were luckier than the couch!

      Oh, my skeleton had more broken places than the couch:
      2 breaks of the pelvic bone,
      3 broken lumbar vertebrae,
      1 broken cervical vertebra. 
      But properly, dear Gypsy, ...I am luckier than the couch. The damages of my skeleton will heal again!  :-))
