You can kick me out if you want...

Post by MarkW » Mon Sep 21, 2020 4:46 pm

I've just sold my bike. :crybaby:

I am fully expecting to be excommunicated for this heinous act and will take my punishment like a man, or at least as close as I can get to being a man without knowing anything about football or going in for that strange raised-leg bollock-juggling manoeuvre that some blokes seem to do in public whilst talking to their mates.

Anyway, this was not an easy decision. I mainly did two types of riding: day trips out with my wife, and long-haul blasts across Europe on business, which I absolutely loved. Unfortunately my wife picked up a niggling back injury a couple of years ago that made biking agony, and during her recovery she decided to sell her bike. On top of that I didn't manage a single foreign trip last year for one reason or another, and this year has been a complete washout too, for obvious reasons. Next year isn't looking any better either, and all the conferences I would have gone to on the continent have already decided to become online events for 2021. The occasional blast to the office really doesn't justify keeping a K1600GT in the garage, and so I decided to let someone else have the benefit of what is undoubtedly a stunning bit of engineering. :(

Technically I suppose I am still a bike owner if not actually a bike rider as I've got most of an ST1300A in the warehouse at work, waiting to be resurrected. If that's enough to qualify me for continued membership of this fine forum (and incidentally the only one I haven't either left voluntarily because it was shit or been banned from for being rude about Cilla Black) then all well and good. If not, just reply with 'Twat' and I'll go and find somewhere else to hang out. I should also come clean and admit to owning a caravan, if that sways your decision...

:D

No worse than the rest of the forum members, if we can find space for foreigners living in the waste lands of hoth I'm sure your continued presence here will be fine.

Ohhh we would miss your posts too 😁
