Marcus, my dear,Greg & Vincent my handsomes, being a DIY'er all my life having to depend on my own abilities to get home on my bike or a ship to the next port. I could not afford to pay someone to spend time on my bike, selling it and buying something modern I couldn't afford that either as one has to pay out for
A) road fund licence
B) higher insurance
C) servicing as you require specialised computers
D) depreciation, capital outlay, servicing ect, after ten years a bike worth little and an empty pocket
E) keeping my carbon footprint as small as possible
F) economy as not many bikes do 200 plus miles to 15 Ltrs or a standard tank 3.25 gallons
G) LASTLY I not riding my favourite bike, 2004 we will have 60 years together, I always thought I was a youngster on a Vincent.
We are all not more than DIY's
The one more or less gifted.
There are the ones hammering an oilpump brass in, against all odds.
And then there are the ones getting A boat in harbour against all odds.
Ps it starts off being observative.
And using an open mind.
