I'm spending most of my free time drooling over bikes on ebay and dreaming...

I'm doing plenty of cycling, but much as I enjoy it, it's a different fix. I can tell I'm going cold turkey for biking cos I'm spending most of my free time drooling over bikes on ebay and dreaming...
I do that anyway.... covid pandemic or no pandemic. As my old gaffer used to say, “if a man don’t dream about having nice things (cars in his case), then he’s either pissing it up against the wall or playing around”
Never used to make sense to me at the time but as I’ve got older it makes perfect sense. Dream away Pete I say 👍👍

Yes I know the feeling Ian, I think I got out twice last year for a spin. Got to have been the least amount of saddle time since 1993 when I spent a year backpacking around OZ. Even then I managed one ride on a bike. Like you Ian I consider myself quite fortunate to have been going to work throughout this whole pandemic, so from that point of view my sanity is still pretty much intact.
Unfortunately.... I personally can’t see the Stafford show in April going ahead but who knows and fingers crossed it can. Here’s to October. Hopefully now the vaccine rollout has started restrictions will hopefully be slackening off come summer time.... bike time🤞🤞👍
Here’s to hoping, and yes let’s all try n keep our chins up and keep focused 👍👍🤘
Cheers, Michael

I realised the other day that after 2020, the year that never was, I am missing motorcycling. I do get to ride my bike a lot as I am still lucky enough to be working, but there have been so few opportunities to do motorcycling. For example when I have a day off if the weather is nice I liked going to Cadwell to spectate at trackdays as it was free, can't do that. I like going to the local bike cafes for a brekkie, can't do that. I like wandering to the big, shiny bike shops to drool over bikes I can't afford, can't do that.

I feel as though I am losing touch with motorcycling as a hobby. So thank you to all of you fine thumperteers who at least have kept an online presence going and particularly with the promise of actual activities this year. At least in some measure I feel connected to the hobby even if I don't get to see many actual bikes.

and...`saddlery was made with onion`    :)

By someone called Joan Sellerie (celery) so not so much a cafe racer but more of a deli racer perhaps as it has a salad theme.

I do like it though. Almost be worth the intense pain I would be in if I rode it!

Does this mean that everyone named Ian has to have a new name 🤔

Hmmm now let me see....😂

Yes. We need to support diversity and as there are at least three Ian's on this site we must do more.

Ian, no sorry Trojan, Itsme, hang on who am I?

I did wonder if there was some form of cantilevered bracket, blended in to give the effect, but I reckon Michael's nailed it.
