Not even close Tink

Late last year I bumped into this gentleman with a nice SB R90S on the back of a trailer and strike up a conversation ( which I immediately offer him a decent price in cash and my two young daughters for it , but as he rattled of his impressive stable he said that this would be the last bike to go )

I asked if it was broken down which he replied that no he was on his way down to his friends house for a ride . He complained that after two hip replacements he isn't up to the 800km round trip anymore , and was only capable of a few hours a day in the saddle . At 72 I think thats a fair excuse.

When I grow up ... I want to be just like him.
