MT blues

Post by namtip » Wed Apr 10, 2019 6:43 pm

Hi guys - long time since I was last on here!

So the MT has been laid up for most of the last couple of years. No particular reason I suppose... life, projects etc. I'm sad to say I find my enthusiasm waning :cry: . I feel sad for the MT more than anything - when I first got her about 9 years ago she was the love of my life. Now she just languishes in the garage, which is an awful shame. Almost criminal. I am still in two minds, but I think the time may have come for us to part ways so that someone else can enjoy and cherish her.

Took her for an MOT yesterday - first time on the road in ages (of course it pissed down :roll: ). She passed with flying colours, and it was a good feeling to get her out and about. But I still feel meh about the whole thing.

Anyway, that's it for now. Just wanted to say hi and share how I felt. Hope I didn't depress you :|

Take another trip to Iceland? Or maybe Llanfyllin as Dave said. It would be good to see you again.

Hi Colin, haven't seen you in ages!
I'm riding up for the Wales meet on the Friday if you're up for a trip?
