    I do understand your reasons, but i'm so sorry your calling it a day, I wish you all the best over there in the sunshine and
    take it easy!
    Thanks for your post.---We moved to France 20 years ago as you could buy a house at quarter the price you would have to pay in Britain.

    Huge gardens and even barns. My barn was 10 metres by 7. The garden 3,000 square metres. Could park 50 cars in it.

    However much too large at my age to look after it.---We did, however, keep a foot in both camps by buying a flat in Teignmouth to retire to when no longer mobile. The bike had to go as there was no place to garage it.-- Car parking costs £70 per month to park anywhere. ( If you can find a place. Lol. ) Now about to sell our French house and move back to Teignmouth. Maybe next year.-I am normally there once a year to visit family.

    Thanks for your post. Not likely to be a 2 wheeler. Maybe a small, easy to park, electric car.

    Well done dude.

    Keep safe, and keep posting!
    My first bike had girder forks and no rear suspension so I've gone from just about the worst to one of the best with quite a few adventures in between.--( I forgot to say the first bike had a three speed gearbox with the gear change on the side of the tank !!! )

    Just a change of style, but never good bye. Keep up the posts as young folks like myself at 67 need guidance and wisdom. Thanks for all you have inspired me to do my friend.

    Hi Colvert, I haven't had much input to the forum over the years but have dipped in from time to time to see what is going on. I have enjoyed your outlook on life and riding and your many comments on the forum.

    Having suffered from Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) for many years now I fully understand your reasoning for hanging up your riding gear.

    Last year I picked up a Harley VRod in Dubai and rode around the UAE and Oman for a week, for days after I could not get the feeling back in my hands. I'm not sure how long I will be able to keep on riding but I will only stop when I really can't do it any more and become a danger to others on the road.

    Enjoy the four wheels and please keep on with your input to the forum, you have provided many classic quotes and jokes much to my amusement.

    The slight vibration through the bars was beginning to play hell with my fingers at distances over a hundred miles or so and taking the pleasure out of riding.
