Saying goodbye
« on: January 03, 2019, 04:18:15 pm »
Just said goodbye to my beloved 84 Tenere XT after 6 years of biking pleasure. Feel totally kak but on the plus side I have a beautiful 660 R to fill her shoes.
Still it is seriously hard to lose something you have become so attached to.

I feel your hurt.

But also your joy on that 660!

Hey Bill - thanks for parting with your baby - I promise to look after her.  As sad as you are to lose her, I am as happy to have her now.
Maybe one day we'll be able to do a ride together.

If this was about a girl it would have been a interesting post

It is never nice to say goodbye to a "loved one", but it must be some comfort knowing that she went to a loving home

Stem, net nie jou KTM aan Moeltn verkoop nie, dan moet jy elke dag lees en fotos sien hoe hy in sy moer in gery/gebreek word  :imaposer:
