Thank you.... many happy years of riding ahead.
I'm struggling to let it sink in. I've actually done it.
To you guys it might just be another bike. To me it's a bucket list item. Writing this at 5AM, sleepless, I'm reflecting on 'why now?'. The logical explanation is that my company is closing (long story) and we've all been laid off. Because I've got 20 years of seniority, the compensation will pay for the bike. Nice. But that's not it. I'm starting to tick off bucket list items, for crying out loud...
There's a saying; "Old men go raging into the night". Am I getting old?
Sod it! He who dares not, wins not.
Martin! Wake up!! Focus on getting a grip on your inner teenager and get busy learning to commandeer this utterly lethal machinery in a grown up manner.
