    So . . . that's just a hobby then?

    Neat little bikes. So agile and comfy enough to spend 6 hours in the saddle. I'd have one in my garage if offered. Mine has done 40200km and will do 70kph comfortably. 80 if you give it time.
    47000 on mine....

    Even if it's just something to ride for a couple of hours locally on a Sunday afternoon.
    Yeah. If found a ratty old CB125 to toodle to the shops on I'd be quite happy. Trouble is I've started looking over my shoulder a bit. 41 years since I started riding with no injury accidents but a few close calls. I'm starting to wonder if I'd be pushing my luck getting another bike.

    Come back in a year. My mortgage is paid off in July 2020 so we'll see what develops after that.

    Coming soon, to a Honda dealer near you...

    In breaking news, oakie chooses two wheeled happiness over career.

    BUT WAIT >>>

    My new job didn't work out that well for me so I'm back at DX Mail again for another stint ... possibly even filling in the next 2055 days until I can retire.

    The indoor office ain't a patch on my two-wheeled outdoor one in the job-happiness stakes.
