  1. Hey everyone,
    I picked up my bike last night from Roughcactus who had been looking after it since my operation.
    Im happy to be back on the road again after such a long time away.
    Id like to extend a personal thanks to Keith for being so Kind and helpful in storing my bike for me. Lil was happy it was so far away so I wouldnt ride it.
    Keith also done all the new modifications to my bike BUT NEVER MENTION "STREETFIGHTER"around him as he is likely to start twitching and go nutz.

    I rode it home from Bayswater last night and I was nervous as hell. My confidence I had has now got to be rebuilt and that might take a while.
    I do ride like a granny now as Im very worried about my pins and plates in my right shoulder. I guess its going to be a slow process but one Im keen to work on.

    I now hope to see you all at then next coffee night I can attend and catch up with all the people Ive not seen since MArch.

    See you all soon I hope.

    Stookie :grin:
