The bikes future . .

Postby RB » Sun Jul 26, 2015 10:47 pm

True to form, the bike starts first kick and rattles off straight up to a ton . . Then I realize, I am wearing shorts and sandals and my tyres are under inflated and severely perished, time to slow down a bit and give us BOTH a chance! :?

I reflect on the bike, it's age, the tyres and virtually NO braking power . . . And the fact I don't need to kill myself or the bike anytime soon . . .

Next video will be in a couple of weeks where I should be rebuilding the brakes 8-)

Good to see you looking so well Rick, I think that bike is a better cure than any pills :shock: and probably cheaper than the doctor ;) its certainly got the grin factor :P I agree, I think the bike has to stay as is other than a service 8-)

OMG ... I'm sitting here listening to you talk about the future of the bike ...

When you first started talking ... I heard the voice of Norman Lovett ... you know who he is ... right ??? ... and what he played ???
If you look for the bad in people expecting to find it, you surely will.
