    To All,

    I've sold my Speed Four today, really enjoyed all the bike meets and trips I've been out on it. No doubt I will get a bike again in the future, but I quickly fell into pinball temptation and the garage has become stuffed with Pinball machines and the Bike just wasn't getting the love and has had to make way. Thank you for all the enjoyable rides out and memories- including but not limited to:

    - Riding in the rain to a petrol station which long since delivered fuel
    - Fish'n'chippin' it in Swanage
    - Donating to lifeboats with Bath Classics
    - Gettin' to know all the White Horses of Wiltshire
    - Rowdy Cow Ice Cream trips
    - Winding down the lanes back from Stratford Upon Avon
    - Riding to Cheddar Gorge and finding ourselves in the middle of a cycle road race
    - Poppin' my first roll-on-wheelie on the old Frome Road
    - Gettin' Knee's down at M4 Karting on the MiniMoto's

    & hopefully I'll join you again in the future. When I no doubt get the itch to ride again.

    Burbler I still have a Green bib of yours, get in touch if you want it - welcome over any time.

    Cheers guys!

    Good luck playing with your balls Gez.

    I was off a bike for 35 yrs before getting a CB500 then the yellow peril(s).

    Might come over for coffee next summer if this krap is done with.

    Nooo, don't leave us. Keep popping back in to take the mickey or something.

    So glad you enjoyed a few crazy outings with us all, look forward to you seeing the light and getting back on a bike sometime in the future.
    We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.Ē

    It won't last long - the already mention itch will get you back in. I tried giving up when my first daughter was born - lasted all of 6 months before I had two wheels in the garage again.

    Best of luck regardless ..... quitter!

    Cheers all, no doubt I will be on two wheels again in the future. I will do my best to make sure it's not a 35 yr gap (Burb!). Selling a bike is no where near as fun as buying one! I will drop in now and again BB.

    Cheers guys!
