Oh well buddy.. I sort of know what you mean.  I haven't got one myself, but fortuently Im much yonger than you and in really good health.  I will never convert you but Id say the difference between peddling half capacity vs being on a motorbike in terms of your health is different worlds.

I hate to see you give up cycling.. thats not to say you shouldnt get a motorbike too.

BTW do you remember that rusty old knackerd, beat up old audax you sold me.. just bought the last set of Reynolds steel forks that will probably ever be offered in BRG... I dont even want them, but now they are rare I must have them!!!

You take care mate

Ben

Ben,
You will need to refresh me regarding old knackered rusty Audax bike I sold you!

Well truth be known it was a lovely rust free BRG audax mk3 that you sold me (before you split with your partner???)  You had a lot of white floors!! but the bike.....still got it!!! Pretty much still in the condition you gave it to me in...   I need to start about thinking about a new groupestet next year .. but thats next year.   Its my favourite road bike. im not setting any records but im fast enough and comphy!

Hello,
When I lived in Dorset! Ah.... Yes my wife left me after 29 years. I have now partially recovered and have moved away to start my life again. She left just over 5 years ago.
I hope that you are enjoying that bike.
John (I still have in my computer a photograph of that bike and had wondered where it went!)
