New Members / Re: Born again from North Yorkshire - Endeavor
« Last post by TallTex on Yesterday at 11:44 PM »
A warm welcome from Texas, Endeavor.  :031:
\
I took 15 years off myself. Eventually I bought back one of my old bikes, a Suzuki Savage, from the friend I had sold it to 15 yrs. before. (I sold it to him pristine and bought it back as a "project" but for very little money.) But doing that saved my bacon, as I was 2 years into caring for my mother, bedridden and with paranoid dementia, and my mind was about to snap from the difficulty of it. Riding was my therapy.

I took it very slowly at first because, being 15 years more tempered and mature, I knew what I didn't know and what skills I had lost and was rightly nervous. But it all came back and then some: I know I ride more intelligently than I ever did in my young riding days, and am more rewarded by knowing how to do it smoothly and well.

May returning be as wonderful for you as it was for me. Respect your limits until you are riding well within them.  :123A:

Hi Thomas
Really sorry to read that you have suffered a accident on your bike you were fantastic fun and company at NVM,  your apology for your grandfather bombing the chippies was well funny and seeing  you enjoy the uk's favorite takeaway was great fun.
Think I had the honor of getting your first beer in hawes and the pleasure was all mine.
Brought ride mag for the versys article and show friends your story,  were you wearing the gloves you wore at hawes when you had the accident? And if so your hands ok?
Wishing you a full recovery and that you are soon riding again EVERYDAY.

Welcome from the Great North -East of England. :028: If you are a little bit rusty you could do a lot worse than tag on the back of Geoff for a few rideouts  in those glorious dales.  :002:

Thomas.    So sorry to hear of your big off, sounds like a real nasty one.

Fortunately you are still here to tell the tale, I hope that you make a speedy recovery, and are fit enough to ride again very soon. It sounds like you may need a new Versys, ( don't even think about DOWNgrading  to one of those XSR things).

Your trip to the UK  was very enjoyable for you and the boys, and in turn we also enjoyed your company. After you left us you took in in joys of Scotland, and it looks like you enjoyed that too.

The NVM was a success, and I think that most participants enjoyed the routes, and the evenings in the pub were a laugh a minute. Couldn't be anything else really whilst " The quiet man)  :008: Whisky Dave was in attendance.

Keep doing the right things to get yourself fit and well again, and good luck with finding a new bike.

And hope to see you at next years NVM in Ireland.  Where Jay will have a real treat in store for us.

Good luck with your recovery.   Best Wishes    Geoff and Lyn  :152:
Thanks Geoff and Lyn,
I can use encouragement and humor is always helpful to get well (no way to Jahamahajamaja).
Therefore, I am already looking for a new Versys, but it is first time to do a lot of bureaucratic work until my insurance and credit bank agree.

Sorry to hear about your accident
Hope you have a speedy recovery.

Re your photo's
If you have an android phone then Google should have backed up all your photo's to the web and could be available via any web browser in your Google account / drive 👍

I believe iPhones do the same via a similar apple  app 🤔

Plus any FB posts will still have photos you can re download 😎
Thanks Richard,
I will try it as soon as possible.
