    Congratulation Joe, looking forward to seeing your new bike. Did your dealer give you any date for delivery?

    Looking forward to seeing pictures of your new bike Joe. I did ask for the Scrambler 400 whilst my RP900 was in for a service but they couldn’t do it as I would be keeping the bike overnight and it was needed for test rides. Never mind I will take one out sometime this summer.
    Congratulations on your retirement Joe although if it owt like mine you’re going to be carrying on doing something. I went from being a fireman for 30 years to teaching chainsaw courses. This was meant to be very much part time. Hmm, that hasn’t worked as I thought, near enough full time for the past two years now. I’ll be reducing that this spring though. Still it’s paid for a new bike, two Scotland trips, two French Alps trips, a three week norway trip and so far for this year a trip to Ireland via Scotland and another Alps trip.

    @Tigcraft.
    28TH Was the day. Still getting up at five am thinking am I going to work today. But I will get into the swing of it soon. My Son just set me up with a complete sea fishing kit so I am looking forward to getting out there. If I catch some monster fish I will share the pictures with you all. But as my Dad used to say to me ; are all the fishermen liars or do all the all the liars fish. Joe

    Yes I don't know why they call it retirement. I have been working on friends bikes and the company ask if I would like to be a fill in for holidays and illnesses not replied yet as I feel I have completed enough 12 hour sifts. But your service to the country is way beyond my efforts and I take my hat of to you Joe

    O'H @Sandi T I will of course post some picture. But just think I can now read all your tours without breaking it into section. As you know I am a very slow reader. Joe
