Re: Mid-life crisis, challenge, bucket-list or life-long dream?

I think it only becomes a crisis when total number of bikes is greater than number of watches. An ex forumite mate of mine seems to have taken it to a different level, as he also seems to be collecting crash helmets, to ensure sufficient choice, depending on the outfit and bike selected for that da...

Don’t want to take advantage of your mid life crisis....but any bargains going..Richard :lol: Well... depends on your definition of ‘bargain’. Based on what gets worn least, I think my Geophysic may go, as well as my Speedmaster LE. Together they should pay for either one of these... BB6B2FD7-9F2A-...

Re: Mid-life crisis, challenge, bucket-list or life-long dream?

Well, three months later and tomorrow is day one of my IAM training. I’ve covered almost 4000 miles on the BMW and feel ready for the next steps, which should enable me to smoother and safer.

I'm not even sure what 'one of these' is.
It's a "quick-shifter". Basically, it allows you to change gear without using the clutch. Also on upshifts there is no requirement to close the throttle.
