    The time has come to say GOODBY.

    Going to hang up my riding boots. Had a good offer for my CB so it's going to go.

    Totally reliable and a pleasure to ride but having four wheels is now a greater attraction for me.

    Best wishes to all and a merry Xmas too.

    I wish you well and i can imagine it took a lot of consideration (I know because i am in the early stages of the same thoughts), have a good xmas and a safe new year, maybe keep dropping in from time to time to what's happening. All the best.

    The end of a legend...

    I'm a little sad to know you won't still be out there on the roads with us, Col, but I certainly understand.

    I hope your next toy brings you as much joy as the CB did, no matter how many wheels.


    Wait...I thought you had a Yamaha, too.?.?
    I think I have a picture of you on it somewhere here. Let me see....

    aaaah, Colvert, what are you, 83? 84? no one else comes close to you in 'longevity' on a bike in these parts, so it's a regrettable (if understandable) conclusion to a long and very positive involvement in this forum. I'm honoured to have shared electrons with you, and I wish you all the best in your middle age!
    piling the mileage on...

    Thank you all very much Gents.--I will look in now and then to see how things are going.

    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.

    It's a sad day when someone with such a love of riding calls it a day Colvert.

    Since having my bike stolen earlier this year I have been wondering if I will ever get "back in the saddle".
    These winter months have made it a little easier but I'm sure i'll miss it when the weather improves.

    Thanks for all your helpful input over the years (and all the crap jokes ).

    Best wishes for the future whatever it holds for you.

    @DeLuth - funny enough that's exactly how I pictured the old bugger.
