    New TTSE; but old Member!

    I went to pick up my bike from A1 Moto in York yesterday.  It has 34,000 miles and was new to someone else in June 2013.  I bought it in June 2014 with 4,000 miles on it.  I had an endowment Policy pay out burning a hole in my pocket.  You can see what's coming........

    Sooooooooooooooo I ordered a new Black TTSE, collecting on Thursday 24th March.  Of course buyers remorse was almost consuming me as I rode home, the long way, thinking how to break my good news to SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed!)?

    Whilst she was getting her head around around my 526 bill for work on my TTSE and the pain of cost of old bike ownership I agreed and slipped that she had hit on the very reason I decided to buy a new one.  Having 43 happy years of marriage she knows me better than I do and was soon as excited (well almost) as me as my new found wealth had meant something material to bring joy in my heart.

    As soon as I have her, the new bike that is, I'll post pictures, just in case you have not seen a picture of a fast Black one.

    Love, light and kindness,

    Dave

    Congratulations on the new ride!
    My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

    It was a faulty ignition switch not the known routing issue.
