Back on a bike

Postby skri » Sat Apr 10, 2021 12:22 pm

Hello again
It’s been nearly 4 years since I was last on the forum. Checking my old posts I see that I got a stone in the belt of my XB12R back in 2016. Shortly afterwards I went off to finish my contract in Angola and on return spent a while exploring Kawasakis ( ZZR1100 / ZX12R) and found work up in the Shetlands. (The Buell sitting in the garage -patiently awaiting a new belt ☹)

Circumstances can change so quickly – I ended up in hospital in 2018. When I got out of hospital, I was unable to ride. Prior to this, I was being badgered by a mate to take our BM GS’ to Africa – you never know what’s around the corner – so Just Do It – Now!

Late last year I finally got back onto two wheels and managed to get 3-day trip over to the Suffolk coast before lockdown. Wow how good did that feel!

I still have my Buell! It awaits fitting of a new belt and then………….
