I hope you are all well. lOl
Not been on hear for a long old time. :coat:
My Appologies, initially getting too involved in racing a different type of motorcycle followed by mental health issues, then a career change have put me out of the buell scene.
I do however miss it a lot.........but I'm back along with my White S1wl :roll:
All the best Richard

Nice to hear from so many of you both on here and FB.
It has been a long haul to get feeling well again.
However Im now a full time mountaineering guide and extreme sports instructor, a job which I absolutely love (its like playing out everyday and getting paid), its not that easy, the qualifications are expensive to get, some are more physically challenging than elite military tests, it takes a fair while and there is a fair amount of responsibility.
It took a couple of seasons to get established, my third year was a belter, very busy and lots of travel.
Should have done it 20 yrs ago.
Lockdown has been a hick up but many folks have had it way harder, things are now getting back up and running.
Obviously motorbikes had to take a back seat during all this due to financial and time constraints.
But Im back on the bikes now we can travel again in Wales 8-)
Looking forward to meeting up for a ride with some of you as soon as we can. :yup:

Thought one of those old houses you were restoring caved in on you. Nothing like fun activity to get your mental state where it needs to be and every day at that, so congrats on the career change and hopefully it prospers.

IIRC and its was you , we meet at :maz: open day several years ago now , and the " carb glitch" as edd refers to was after you filled it up with diesel on the way home :oooops: and :maz: had to collect you and your bike bring it back to the emporium to drain the fuel tank in front of all you friends who were offering support in the usual buelligan way :rotfl:
