And so a chapter ends in the story of this little motorcycle. It’s time for it to move on. 31,000 miles and counting…
After moving home and work sites at the same time last year, my commuting needs changed. In the battle of bike vs train, the train won the upper hand. This time.
It’s goodbye to cold winters, slippery diesel covered roads, near misses, lying drivers who force you through lengthy court battles, weekends spent spannering rather than with the kids…. All the things that make an otherwise fantastically fun and enjoyable pursuit a misery.
I hope to get back into riding in the years to come, but for pleasure rather than the necessity of needing a cheap method of transport and all the challenges that brings with it. Right now I have a family to nurture.
So my journey is over for now and the CBF will be sold (if you’re interested, give me a shout on here!). It’s a tired little bike now and needs some TLC as well as tax and an MOT. I’m sure it’ll have many more miles left in it if it ends up in the right hands.
As for this blog, I never thought it would have kindled such a following as it has. Thank you to each and every one of you who have contributed to it by commenting or just reading through. It’ll remain here as long as WordPress.com will host it and I’ll continue to reply to comments when I can.
As for the future, who knows? It’s been fun, but I’m sure there’s plenty of fun left to have…
Peace and good wishes to you all.
