Yep as the title suggests I have had to buy my own bike for training. I tried to give it up, I really did. Even to the point I sold my road bikes and just kept the 998 trackie and my 525. The bike shops supply me with bikes so what's the point of owning one. Well they did. But like every other buisness I guess they are all tightening the purse strings. But as fete would have it I just cant seem to get out of it. Anywho at least I can pick and choose when I want to work. I also have posite contracts. And that's my bread and butter now. I guess I train people for the love of it (and money) Been doing it for a dozen years and a bit over it full time. Like I have not been on a social ride with my mates since 07. true story. I have ridden 6 days a week for work, for yes a long time.(yes I am a fossil) So day off is a day out of the saddle. Anyway as I am only doing it now when I want to. I just might have to try and ride for fun again. Might even have to come play with some of you guys if you will let me. So my new chisel. Can't believe none of you guys picked this one up. It was on just bikes and ebay I think. Yup he took a lot less than what he wanted. Trade in price. Too good. I feel sorry for him but he is glad it has found a loving home. Anyway An 06 VFR with 4,000 k's yep you read that right. It's just immaculate. Seriously I cannot find a chip or scratch on it. Only bad thing about it is the original dunlops. Not a dunlop fan. I have never had a sensible bike in my life. I have been riding since I was 6. I am 49 now and roll over at least every two years. A lot of bikes yes. Must say I feel a little gay (no offence rat) But this thing is really growing on me. Normally VFR ha ha poofta's bike. Wheres my Duc or R1 ha ha God arrogant ignorant f*ck I am. lol. I Still couldn't own a cruiser ha ha not that there is anything wrong with that. As I have stated I have to sit on the greepers lap to feel alive. Anyway without further adu I bring you "Nick" lol That's what I have called him.
