:yup: It just feels right , probably an age thing , throughout life we swop and change and try different manufactures and styles of bike, and at this moment in time and probably for the rest of the time we have left the Buell ticks all the right boxes :worthy:

Fuck me, this thread needs some sunshine...Why would you keep doing the same thing in your life if it makes you so miserable? I just don`t get that.

You can actually change your life if you want to, there is only one thing keeping you in the position that you do not enjoy and that is physically and mentally...So just fucking do something, life is a gift and it is a pure miracle that you are here at all and to squander that is just disrespectful to those that took the effort to have all those shags that resulted in you...

Just waking in the morning makes me happy, I am alive today and that is a bonus, it means I get to bring happiness into someones life one more day, I might even be able to help someone...I know I will laugh and smile today...I am up against it in a few ways....But I am going to turn those negatives into a positive and I might learn something about life, myself and others whilst I am doing that, everyday is a learning day, life is to be embraced, lived, experienced and not to be thrown away...But if someone chooses to do that, that is OK too, we are all different and to appreciate all those differences is life...No one sits in judgement, nor should they.

Life is precious and it is fleeting, so enjoy the fuck out of it while you have it.

This guy came into a cafe I was at the other day, he was on a Daytona 955i & we got chatting. He asked me what I thought about the Buell.
I said that in terms of riding experience & tuneability my 1125r absolutely wipes the floor with all of the other 52 bikes I've owned in my life, it's the pinnacle of my motorcycling career.
He looked pretty surprised! Obviously never ridden one.

A good friend of mine was just getting over his wife leaving him, and a few weeks later his brother died! :?

I’ve been helping take his mind off things by doing a few ride outs. Yes getting out on a motorcycle helps get you out of things if only briefly. ;) The funeral is on Monday. :sad1: But he’s looking forward to us getting out on the bikes again as soon as. :clap:

My own financial and domestic situation doesn’t look like it’s going to get any better. I get myself absorbed in a hobby such as building my own record players. It becomes my own little world in which I can control the outcomes.....and eventually something really good comes from relatively little cost. Just recoated my XB muffler in a tasty matt black HT paint for this year. Little victories and accomplishments each day keep you sane. Best wishes to all! :old:

Amen to that....yesterday was our 12th wedding anniversary, I woke her and was greeted with her usual loving smile, we had breakfast and then spent the afternoon wandering around the NMM 8-)

After that we went "dogging"...
