    TC was the dual range one? I had a TS125 as my first bike which was five speed.

    I feel your pain. After redundancy I had to sell my best ever bike because I couldn't justify the $1000 annually for rego and insurance as I wasn't riding the bike more than once a fortnight and that was really just to give it a run. The decision was easier for me though as my new job as a motorbike postie saw me still riding a bike 5 days a week (hence not really needing to ride in the weekend) and someone else was paying for it.

    That must be a tough call we will all face sooner or later. Seems like only yesterday I was a teen rider, a 20s something, 30s, 40s 50s!!! Shit.
    If I moan about getting older there's always some smartarse to say, the alternative is being dead, so stop moaning and appreciate the years you have been able to put behind you.

    How many times have all of us riders faced a near death moment, and ridden on oblivious sometimes to how easily it can all end.

    Maybe get yourself a e-bike. A long time riding buddy after his last crash gave up motorbikes and is loving his two e-bikes. But he misses the motorbikes of course.

    Reflect on the many good times and all the best for whatever lies ahead. You have been a positive and amusing contributor here so stay with us!

    Regrets. But reasons not valid. Age not valid reason not to ride if less than 80 ( or my age plus 10, whichever is greater). And pre 1980 will qualify for vintage rego, only about $60. Insurance bugger all. Like people said, small 70s two smoker, shit loads of fun for damn all dollars. Just sayin'

    Nice to see you popping up from time to time Ixion. Reminds me of the old days of the forum.

    You'd need SkidMark and WINJA winding each other up about the cornering capability of a knackered ZXR250.

    my 2nd "fav" memory of skidmark.

    I lent a GL145 to a muppet from the Auckland Uni MC. Muppet binned the GL (not a worry its $500) and was fixing it up (DIY). After a few weeks I wanted my bike back so I arranged to go help him fix it up, and who do I find arms deep in my GL? Skidmark. This muppet not only borrows my bike, then bins it, then can't afford to pay a shop to fix it, then gets SKIDMARK to work on my bike.

    Then about 2 months later I get a fine for $150 in the mail for said muppet parking in a bus stop on K road......

    My fav memory of skidmark - going to a party at noels and skidmark of course rocks up. After many burnouts later skidmark realises that it was his bike that everyone was spraying rubber over.....

    That same night indy tried his 1st ever burn out, but forgot to put the bike in gear and was just redlining it on neutral. When he finally stopped we told him to put it in gear next time, to which he immediately did, started a burnout (actually surprised) then promptly ran over an empty beer bottle. Can you fail harder at a burnout? well yes but it was still funny as.
    Then I could get a Kb Tshirt, move to Timaru and become a full time crossdressing faggot

    Good times, I don't recall the beer bottle part lol. In my defence, refreshments were served beforehand.

    On the bright side ... if he put the burning end up his ass ... the fire would possibly go out ...

    But I know a few people from Gore ... the odd's of the fire going out aren't great ...

    Aaah yes Skidmark. IIRC he was propounding a theory that he coud stop from 60kph (?) in 2 metres - without the assistance of a concrete wall.
