    How do you carry a Euphonium on a Motorbike?

    How do you carry a Euphonium on a Motorbike?

    didn't know where else to post this question, so here we go. This is a serious question by the way. I'm getting a bike which will be my only mode of transport, and being heartily sick of hugging/lugging my euph on a bus and clouting old ladies inadvertantly (that and the south wales public...

    Hello People. Well, who am I? I'm a Euph player, currently not with a band although possibly seeking soon in the Swansea area. Not been playing much over the last few years due to moving around a lot and not having my own transport, but trying to get back into it. I work (don't we all)...
