Time to say fairwell

Postby jambox » Mon Oct 08, 2018 7:51 pm

So after almost 10 years of ownership, I will be parting ways with my SD next weekend.

There are a few reasons for selling up, main one being a newborn coming along and me having no restraint to pinning it when in the twisties (I live in the start of the Scottish Highlands, so...). That and the fact that I've not really been using it much over the last few years and it deserves to be used (and abused).

I have loved owning the beast and have many fond memories, but am happy to move on.

There will be a few things going up for sale, off the top of my head a Rottweiler box, LSL steering damper, Motohooligan tank brackets and rearset adjusters among other stuff that I've acquired over the years.

This is truly one of the most involving forums that I have come across with some brilliant members and I will stop by every now and then.

As they say "Thanks for the memories and toodle pip!"

Sad to hear it, but glad you're doing it by choice and have a family to look after.

Are you done with riding as a whole or will you pick up something else?

Thanks for your years of contributions to the forum Jambox! Hope you pop your head in now and again for some banter :mrgreen:

Cheers guys.

Not done with riding just yet. Picked up a cheap '78 CB750F2 to do up, don't think I'll ever be able to not have something in the garage for those once in a blue moon chances I'll get.

Good luck in the future mate. Nice knowing you over the years.

Stick around though - I too don't visit here as much as I used to but always nice to pop in every so often. (For me it was not as good without pictures and Photobucket) I lost hundreds of illustrated posts and it sort of broke my soul.

Comrade: Sorry to see you go. There was a time in my life when I wasn't allowed on a bike because of the kids BUT they soon grow up...

Thanks for all of your contributions :D

There's an expression used in the theatre that goes along the lines of "Break a ...". In this forum it is inappropriate so I'll just say "toodle pip" as well :D

I'm sure most of us ( of a certain age) have had to say goodbye to motorcycles for a period in our lives due to kids. But it's not all doom and gloom, alcohol can fill that void for a time :D and eventually you can buy a cheap hack and work you're way back up to something you will be proud of. The best of luck to you. :)
